An encore performance filmed live in front of an audience

Sat 5 Apr 2025

The beautiful but icy Princess Turandot will only marry a man who can correctly answer three riddles.

Those who fail are brutally beheaded. But when an unknown prince arrives, the balance of power in Turandot’s court is forever shaken, as the mysterious stranger does what no other has been able to.
