Turandot Re-imagined (R&D workshops) - looking for singers and Chinese instrument players


Looking for East Asian Singers (English or Mandarin speaking), plus Singers able to sing in Mandarin (any background), and Chinese Instrument players (any background)

Story Synopsis: Princess Turandot is the heir to the Chinese empire, and has decreed that no man may marry her unless he can successfully answer three riddles. Prince Calaf, enamoured of her beauty, has pledged to answer these riddles, or die in trying. His father’s servant, reimagined as a male Liu, looks on powerless.

Director Jonathan Man and composer Ruth Chan are undertaking a research and development process to bring authentic Chinese elements that we have access to today to inform a new chamber version of Puccini's opera.
