TURANDOT

by Giacomo Puccini

February 24, 27, March 2 & 4


China’s cold-hearted Princess Turandot is not your average royal. Desired by all men and wanting none, she builds a wall of riddles around her heart to keep love away. Challenging every red-blooded suitor to a game of wits, she asks them a series of riddles to win her love… or fail and die. Enter Calàf, who not only solves all three, he proposes his own and puts his life in the hands of the icy princess.

Based on an ancient Chinese fable, Turandot is a masterpiece of romance and spectacle. Puccini saves his most adventurous and uplifting music for this, his last opera, including a massive chorus and the famous aria “Nessun dorma” that has been sung and recorded by great artists from Pavarotti to Aretha Franklin. Starring the world’s premiere interpreter of the role of Turandot, Lise Lindstrom.
