Puccini at his most enjoyably reprehensible
5 May 17 / The Spectator
Richard Armstrong was superbly bold in his gestures in a score that was cutting-edge in its day
3 May 17 / The York Press
Indisputably a resounding triumph for the Leeds company
2 May 17 / Ilkley Gazette
The well-drilled chorus was striking, and the soloists could have stopped a cavalry charge by decibels alone
2 May 17 / The Times
Semi-staged brilliance from Opera North in Puccini's final masterpiece
2 May 17 / What's on Stage
Magnificent Turandot in concert from Opera North
1 May 17 / Bachtrack
Opera North’s golden touch for concert staging opera continues in Puccini’s Turandot
1 May 17 / Seen and Heard
Opera North show how you solve a problem like Puccini

The right choice is certainly made to stage the opera as a concert
