Turandot emerges triumphant, but by the time it does, Mr. Zhang looks considerably older.
Presumably there's an interesting yarn buried in the project, but Allan Miller's drab, diffuse documentary never quite locates it.
A fascinating peek not only at the world of opera but also at the discipline, artistry and the pride of the Chinese.
To see this passion playing out, to experience how much this production did mean to China, allows The Turandot Project to attain levels of emotion that complement those of Puccini's classic.
Miller has gone from relatively small-scale subjects into immensity with a delight called The Turandot Project.
Less music than you might prefer, but grand and moving.
East meets West in this less-than-special documentary.
When Miller's documentary succeeds, it succeeds in conveying the minor miracle of pulling off any monstrous stage production: part diplomacy, part warfare, part vision.
Succeeds because of the monumental spectacle of all those people bringing Puccini's masterpiece to an audience.
A sturdy, workmanlike job, evincing a high degree of competence if not a great deal of imagination.
Worthy viewing for anyone concerned about the state of classical arts.
Mainly this is a film about what goes on backstage when you put on an opera, and that in itself was a treat to see.
