Description Princess Turandot is a woman without mercy who tests her suitors and punishes failure with death. So when Calaf takes up the challenge, he is putting not just his love but also his life on the line. Graeme Murphy brings this exotic tale to the stage with an inspired vision of the Forbidden City of ancient Peking.
