From Gozzi’s fairy tale to Puccini’s opera (on the centenary of the composer’s death). A opera/theatre performance for adults and children. In co-production with CTA Gorizia.


“Turandot Express” is an operatic role-playing game. The players are not just the two singer/actors, but also everything that surrounds them on stage and off. The objects that make up the scene will come to life and transform into characters, showing how imagination can give life even to things. The objects will not only narrate the story, but also become instruments to accompany it with music, supporting the transition from spoken word to singing.


Thanks to the collaboration with CTA Gorizia, the opera meets puppet theatre: the two protagonists on stage will dialogue with the puppet theatre, in a delightful instance of theatre within theatre that will enchant adults and children.


The direction is by Filippo Rotondo, a producer, singer, and theater director who loves to experiment with new forms of operatic performance “pocket-sized”. He has founded a company Filrò that aims to bring opera to new cultural contexts such as museums, art galleries, and historic villas, in order to involve new types of audience.
