Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Com­pe­ti­tion au­tho­rised un­der NSW per­mit LTPS/15/00378. Terms and con­di­tions are avail­able at newslo­cal.com.au.

THE big ideas, bold themes and beau­ti­ful singing of Puc­cini’s Tu­ran­dot are headed to Syd­ney this month.

Graeme Mur­phy’s grand vi­sion of im­pe­rial Pek­ing has been a clas­sic in the Opera Australia reper­toire since it first came to the Syd­ney Opera House in 1991.

The fan­tasy opera of po­etry and myth will re­turn to the iconic venue from June 24 to Au­gust 28.

Tu­ran­dot is a beau­ti­ful and bru­tal princess who chal­lenges her many suit­ors to an­swer three rid­dles on pain of death. No one has ever suc­ceeded.

US so­prano Lise Lind­strom and Australia’s Zara Bar­rett head the pro­duc­tion’s in­ter­na­tional cast, set in an ex­otic world where fear and love go hand in hand.

We have 40 A re­serve dou­ble passes to give away to see Tu­ran­dot at the Syd­ney Opera House on Wed­nes­day, July 15, at 7.30pm.

To en­ter, go to newslo­cal. com.au and click on the com­pe­ti­tions tab.
