The production of the Rostov theater takes the audience not to the fabulous past, where the action of the opera takes place in accordance with the libretto, but to the technological future. The performance uses video projections, neon and LED screens, and the characters flaunt in spectacular futuristic costumes. And all this in order to tell about the all-conquering, selfless and pure love that will save the world.
CREDITS Music by Giacomo Puccini Libretto by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni after motifs from the story of the same name by Carlo Gozzi
