Under the Artistic Director Daniel Serafin, set designer Paul Tate dePoo will transform this most breath-taking of Europe’s open-air stages into a mythical ancient China in all its vastness and variety. A top international cast, led by the acclaimed star soprano Martina Serafin, will breathe life into Puccini’s figures in St. Margarethen Quarry’s unique setting. The premiere of the production by stage director Thaddeus Strassberger is on 8 July 2020.
We were delighted to engage American stage director Thaddeus Strassberger for this opera. His productions both of musical theatre classics and lesser known operas are always met by popular and critical acclaim.
Traditional Chinese art, especially the classic ivory carvings, is the main source of inspiration for Paul Tate dePoo’s stage design. The New York-based scenic designer is a star back home and is regularly honoured with prestigious prizes and awards both in America and Asia.
Giuseppe Finzi, an established specialist in Giacomo Puccini’s epic scores, will for the first time be conducting at the Opera in the Quarry. Under his direction, an ensemble of top international singers will set Puccini’s music alight!
