A Hollywood first?
We are reliably informed that the soundtrack of Mission Impossible 5, which premièred yesterday at the Vienna State Opera, has the Vienna Philharmonic, chorus and soloists perform excerpts from Turandot.
About 20 minutes of the movie plays around, in and on top of the roof of the State Opera building.
Turandot is sung by Lise Lindstrom, who will play the role next season in Vienna. The tenor is Gregory Kunde.
High art meets high-wire action film.
