Official Event Listing

Maria José Siri and Gregory Kunde lead a superstar international cast, starring as the ill-fated lovers at the centre of Puccini’s passionate opera about a free-spirited country girl who becomes the toast of Paris and finds herself torn between true love and a life of luxury.

This sumptuous opera – Puccini’s first major triumph – is a title closely linked to Teatro Regio, which hosted the world premiere in 1893. The rich score, here conducted by the esteemed Gianandrea Noseda, is characterised by youthful vitality and filled with glorious melodies. 

Screening at all locations, excl. State & Riverside. 

 

Teatro Regio di Torino

Inaugurated in 1740, Turin's grand opera house Teatro Regio Torino hosted the world premieres of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut and La Bohème, and the Italian premiere of Strauss’s Salome. Destroyed by fire in 1936, the amazing new Carlo Mollino designed building was opened in 1973
