By carminaburana TOP 500 REVIEWER on Sept. 27 2011
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful Metropolitan production of Puccini's latest opera. Zefirelli's direction is full of colour, great scenography, lavish in style but with a wonderful result. Maria Guelghina sings the title role. Her voice is beautiful, and manages to portray the cruel princess. Liu is beautifully presented by Marina Poplavskaya. Marcello Giordani is Calaf. He reminds me of Franco Corelli, although I find Corelli irreplaceable.
The BR dvd has no extras, but offers a few interviews with the singers, between act II and III. It has 1080 HD image and stereo/surround audio.
At this price, this blue ray DVD is a steal! I loved it.

This production was recorded live at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, Valencia in May 2008. Zubin Mehta is the Music conductor and it was staged by Chen Kaige who is an internationnaly acclaimed Chinese film-maker.The sumptuous costumes and palace sets were designed in China.Maria Guleghina triumphs as Turandot.I encourage people to also view the bonus(36 minutes). The blu-ray version is worth buying. You can admire the costumes and the whole set and the sound is fantastic. Turandot is not my favourite opera but I have seen this production 3 times and I also love Puccini's music. You will never regret this purchase.
