“You, Alla Borisovna, I always give my students at GITIS as an example of the incredible acting” — so, for example, welcomed Bertman Pugacheva. When the show ended, the stars and all the spectators burst into loud and long applause, despite the fact that “Helicon” has shown unusual version of Opera.

The fact that Puccini died a little and did not finish the Opera until the end. And at the first performance of the Opera was cut off right there where he wrote the last note to the author. But then, other composers decided to finish “Turandot”. And they decided to finish the story of incredibly beautiful Chinese Princess Turandot, the love which sought the Prince Calaf, a happy ending.

However, Bertman, famous for a very unusual and daring performances, returned to the original version. And he staged a dramatic story has a dark and violent finale. To work on “Turandot” Dmitry has attracted world-renowned Russian conductor Vladimir Fedoseyev, canadian artist Camellia Koo and lighting designer Thomas Hase.
