Performed on the Bregenz Festival's vast lakeside stage, this production of Turandot is captivating and spectacular. | Giacomo Puccini's final opera is set in China and is an interesting love story that is sure to enrapture audiences. | Puccini died before he completed the opera left instructions that Riccardo Zandonai should finish the work but Franco Alfano was the one to complete the third act. | Paolo Carignani conducts the Wiener Symphoniker with the staging done by Marco Arturo Marelli.| Leading the cast
