Opera: Giacomo Puccini / Turandot

Puccini’s Turandot was on the schedule last week. Staged by the Hungarian State Opera at one of the world’s most beautiful venues for opera. Yes. 

I saw Madama Butterfly at the State Opera two years ago and was quite satisfied, so the opportunity to see my favorite opera in the same setting – with seats in the 11th row going for approximately $60 each – was too good to pass up.
