Adapted from Puccini’s Opera of the same name, Australian choreographer Natalie Weir has transformed Turandot, a story of power, lust and revenge, into a visually stunning dramatic dance production. Accompanied by the original music, Weir’s choreography exhibits sensational and expressive dancing of The Hong Kong Ballet dancers resulting in a captivating spectacle which intrigues and beguiles audiences.

Turandot is a Princess with a glittering heart of ice who has for many years shunned the attention of men. Any man wishing to wed the Princess must successfully answer the three riddles she sets, and if they fail, they must die. Her coldness does nothing to deter her suitors, even though many before them have been ritually executed. Prince Calaf returns to the city from exile and falls in love with Turandot at first sight. In turn, he is adored from afar by Liu, his father’s loyal servant girl.

The complicated emotions aroused by this trio of protagonists inspire a deep reflection on the nature of true love…
