WW: Turandot at The Metropolitan Opera

Watching Opera is probably not my cup of tea but I certainly enjoy it.

Last week I managed to sneak out of my never-ending meeting and headed to the Metropolitan Opera in Lincoln Center to watch Turandot.

Have you heard of Turandot before?
Frankly spekaing, the first time I heard about it is when I got the ticket :).
And this 3-act opera written by Giacomo Puccini is awesome.
You can easily google it for the complete story but for sure Turandot is another vivid reminder that eventually love conquers everything, including the frozen heart of the Chinese princess, Turandot :)

let's have a seat :)

It was a great performance indeed, truly a feast to my eyes and ears.
The voices, the costumes, the properties...
All are so brilliantly showcased.
Although it is in Italian, thanks to the running text, I can easily follow this love story.

Since I can't take pictures during the performance, here are some snaps I got before, during the intermission and after the show ;)

full house indeed..

the talented casts...
the wall of fame...some of the pictures of the famous artists ..

So, all in all watching Turandot at the Metropolitan Opera is really a great experience.
Have you seen opera before?
