Twenty-five years after directing Madame Butterfly, which has become an essential production in the Paris Opera repertoire, Robert Wilson returns to Puccini with Turandot, the Italian composer's last masterpiece. The refined and minimalist sets and the lighting compositions so typical of the director's universe lend themselves perfectly to the story of the cruel Princess, daughter of the Emperor of an immemorial China. The show is constructed as a series of tableaux, some directly borrowed from the Noh theatre, whose ritualised gestures magnify the group scenes, others, burlesque, carried by the comic trio of Ping, Pang and Pong.
