It was a wonderful evening of entertainment when Marilyn and I attended Ellen Kent’s production of Turandot at Dunstable’s Grove Theatre recently. Music by Giacomo Puccini, from plays by Carlo Gozzi and Friedrich Von Schiller. It featured Galina Bernaz as a very able Princess Turandot, Irakli Crigali as Calif – the unknown Prince and Timur’s son.
Liu – The Young Slave Girl was beautifully portrayed by Elena Dee, and Timur by Valeriu Cojocaru. Humor was supplanted in the shapes of Ping, Pang, and Pong – Vladimir Dragos, Anatol Arcea, and Vasile Micusa.
The whole pleasure was conducted by the very talented Gheorghe Stanciu.
