BP Big Screens 2017 is bringing a live screening of The Royal Opera House’s staging of Puccini’s final masterpiece, ‘Turandot’. For the first time here at the Palace, the summer screening will be broadcast live on the big screen set against our spectacular view of London’s skyline. Go beyond the famous aria ‘Nessun dorma’and be transported to legendary China in all its pageantry and savagery, with disguised identities, puzzles and ritual executions. Princess Turandot subjects her suitors to cryptic riddles only to execute them when they fail to answer correctly. Will our hero Calaf solve the riddles and win the Princess? Come and find out at our BP Summer Big Screen.
Please note pre-screening begins at 7pm, with the show starting at 7.30pm. All live screenings are classified 12A by the BBFC. Any child under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 21
We will be selling Picnics which can be pre-booked with your ticket so you can enjoy some delicious food with the screening. You can choose from the Palace Picnic alone or with Prosecco. Please bring your order confirmation and collect your picnic from the Pimms bar on site.

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
