This all new production includes expansive, romantic sets designed by R. Keith Brumley (Turandot
2011) which were inspired by etchings by the 19th century French artist Gustave Doré. Original costumes designed by Mary Traylor (Turandot
2011) will be reflective of Norwegian villagers in the late 19th century.
This production is directed by Bernard Uzan and Lyric Opera Artistic Director Ward Holmquist will conduct members of The Kansas City Symphony in the pit.
