We all lose our heads when we’re in love.
Princess Turandot is utterly beautiful, but she rejects all earthly love. Refusing to marry and harboring a ferocious hatred of men, she proposes that her suitors solve three riddles or else have their heads cut off.
Ninety-nine suitors have previously failed when a young, foreign prince desires to attempt his hand. Can he conquer the pride of the most beautiful woman in the kingdom? Will West and East meet, just as the sun and moon do?
An original, masterly blend between the purity of Oriental tradition and the explosive, fun approach of commedia dell’arte, this original text adaptation of Gozzi’s classic tale and Puccini ’s opera will transport you to a wondrous world you will never wish to leave…
Princess Turandot by Théâtre Tout à Trac East meets West. Harlequin meets Okina. And the sun joins the moon…
