Orchestra and Chorus of the Wiener Staatsoper
Legendary Performances Series
Lorin Maazel and a dream cast of distinguished singers, among them the young Eva Marton and Jose Carreras in his mid-thirties, perform a celebrated staging of Puccini's 'Turandot'.
The performance was received with unanimous enthusiasm. Lorin Maazel scored a great personal success with audience and critics alike with passion, authority and brilliance in his conducting.
The Hungarian soprano Eva Marton brought to the title role a voice of gleaming metal in which one senses the beautiful woman lying in wait to defeat her opponent but is also aware of her fears of man in general. Appearing alongside her as Calaf was Jose Carreras whose "unprecedented intensity" and "priceless tenor voice" were once again at the fore.
Katia Ricciarelli was no less acclaimed in her role as "the best of all possible Lius".
