2008 Princess Turandot (Ksiezniczka Turandot)
While preparing for the House of Bernarda Alba, another group were working on Princess Turandot. The action takes place during an undefined era in a Chinese castle, where the ruler Tantuma’s daughter – stunningly beautiful Princess Turandot – asks her suitors impossible riddles. Those that cannot answer correctly she sentences to death by beheading. A number of these heads, displayed on bamboo stakes, featured as part of the staging. Despite these bloody and sadistic elements, this production was a comedy, ending with the marriage of Princess Turandot to a successful suitor.
Rehearsal provided excellent training for some of our younger talents, as well as those who had been members for many years.
Premiere: 8 November 2008, Cracovia Club, Beechboro.
