Desired by all men but wanting none, China’s cold-blooded Princess Turandot has built a wall of riddles around her heart. Despite the deadly consequences of failure, Prince Calàf takes on Turandot’s challenge to match her wit and melt her icy resistance. TURANDOT’s ravishing score bursts with brilliant choruses and fiendishly difficult arias, including “Nessun Dorma,” which Luciano Pavarotti elevated to iconic status. Performed in Italian with English translations. Opera previews hosted by Maestro Salesky begin 45 minutes prior to each performance.
