Turandot by Franc Aleu @ Gran Teatre del Liceu


Exactly twenty years after the reopening of the Liceu (October 7, 1999) we collaborated on the Opera Turandot by Franc Aleu, one of the best operas of all time, the last and posthumous opera by Giacomo Puccini.

We’ve produced several LED costumes designed by Chu Uroz and also we’ve been taking care of the whole Audivisual technical setup and other multimedia elements like Robots arms controlled with a custom app developed adhoc.

A visually fascinating spectacle in his scenographic conception, Franc Aleu’s debut as a stage director, and with a self-illuminated costume with LED technology, where light plays a fundamental role in the service of a late-day and innovative opera in many aspects, achieved through a great technological deployment in which robotics, visuals and interactivity intertwine to narrate the bloodthirsty legend of Turandot.
The “ice princess” returns to the Rambla theater under the skin of the great Iréne Theorin in the first cast and Lise Lindstrom in the second. Next to her, Jorge de León, Gregory Kunde, Ermonela Jaho and Anita Hartig in two luxury deals.
