Turandot at Bolshoi Theatre

will prima on the evening of December 7th at Bolshoi for a run of five performances. COMMANDOpera notes the mainly local casting with Miss Elena Popovskaya alternating with Miss Murina Lupina as Turandot. Of interest to this venue however is the inclusion of Miss Ekaterina Shcherbachenko who will essay Liu, given the reports COMMANDOpera has heard. This production is delightfully over the top as one would hope from Bolshoi, and was directed by Miss Francesca Zambello. Maestro Antonino Fogliani is on the podium for this particular tournee. A complete listing of all the artists who will essay the various roles is found here. COMMANDOpera notes this for one reason: Miss Galina Shesterneva who essayed the role earlier this year.
