Today’s secret word is Regie

Perhaps La Cieca did not quite play fair with you on the most recent Regie quiz, cher public, because the work depicted is a relatively new one, from 2007 in fact. It’s Die Schatzinsel, an “Abenteueroper” by Frank Schwemmer and Michael Frowin presented by the Opernhaus Zürich. The production is by Nadja Loschky.   Take a look at the trailer for this arrrrguably obscure piece, and after that the next Regie quiz, after the jump.  

Now, cher public, what’s up with this production? Remember, if you recognize the staging, hush while others make their educated guesses!

    Easy -- Turandot

    1. The Princess and Liu have a tug-of-war over Calaf.

    2. Ping and Pang waiting for Pong to tuck them in.

    3. The Emperor impresses the court with a few tricks while Turandot gets ready for her entrance.

    1) Clorinda/Tisbe + Don Magnifico
    2) Dandini/Ramiro = but which is which?
    3) Alidoro -- Vasto teatro e il mondo
