A number of Franco Zeffirelli‘s productions have been retired from the Met under Peter Gelb, but his opulent (if sometimes confusing) Turandot survives.  This season, two exciting sopranos take on the icy title role: Oksana Dyka, Lise and Martina Serafin.  Tenor Marcelo Álvarez sings Calàf, singing one of the most famous tenor moments in opera, “Nessun dorma.”  Carlo Rizzi and Marco Armiliato share conducting duties for the cast that also includes Maria Agresta, Hei-Kyung Hong, Guanqun Yu, James Morris, Giorgi Kirof and Alexander Tsymbalyuk.   The Guardian reviews Lise Lindstrom and Marco Berti in 2013 Royal Opera House Turandot * See and Heard International reviews Nina Stemme in 2013 Turandot at Royal Swedish Opera – Mark McLaren
