Let Pittsburgh Opera take you to ancient China with our lavish production of Puccini’s Turandot. Prince Calaf falls in love with the icy Princess Turandot. To marry her, he must solve three riddles; a single wrong answer results in death. This being opera, a happy ending is never assured, so join us at the Benedum and see what unfolds.
Be dazzled by the sets and costumes! Be blown away by Calaf’s powerful aria “Nessun dorma”! Be moved by Liù’s selfless devotion! Marvel at Puccini’s masterful music. See why Turandot is an all-time favorite.
Renaud Doucet directs. Antony Walker conducts.
