The Legendary Turandot

giacomini_turandot

More great memories!.. This photo (actually, a collage made of two old photos) captures Giuseppe ‘Beppi’ Giacomini in one of his signature roles with a cast for the ages: he was the Calaf, Ghena Dimitrova the Turandot, and Cecilia Gasdia the Liu…and in the final dress rehearsal when Gasdia could not be there, Daniel Oren sang the Liu part in Act 1 and Ghena was the Liu in Act 3 including the magnificent piani that she miraculously sang as if she was born to this….fall 1984!!!! All in their glorious prime with Oren conducting!!! WOW!!!
