The Liceu presents Turandot with Gregory Kunde in the role of Calaf


During the month of October the Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona will be staging Puccini's final –and posthumous – opera, Turandot. In this production we will have the opportunity to listen to tenor Gregory Kunde singing the role of Calaf, the unknown prince, alongside soprano Lise Lindstrom in the role of the “ice princess” Turandot. On stage with them will be, among others, Ante Jerkunica in the role of Timur and Anita Hartig as Liù. The video artist Franc Aleu makes his debut as stage director in this production. Leading the Orquesta Sinfónica y Coro del Gran Teatre del Liceu will be Maestro Josep Pons.

Soon afterwards Kunde will be singing Requiem, by Verdi, at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg. It will be on October 31st and November 1st, under the baton of Alan Gilbert and accompanied by Angela Meade (soprano), Daniela Barcellona (mezzo-soprano) and Riccardo Zanellato (bass).

Soon we will also hear Gregory Kunde in Samson et Dalila at the Teatro de la Maestranza of Seville and also in Otello, at London's ROH.
