Puccini’s Turandot

Feb 25, 2018 Knoxville Civic Auditorium

An icy, beautiful princess so desirable that men came by the hundreds to vie for her love.

 

Desired by all men but wanting none, China’s cold-blooded Princess Turandot has built a wall of riddles around her heart.  Certainly the finest opera never completed, Turandot was bereft of its final scene due to Puccini’s untimely death. While it took a mere mortal to finish what this genius composer had started, Turandot remains among the top of the operatic pantheon to this day. Its ravishing score bursts with brilliant choruses and fiendishly difficult arias, including “Nessun dorma,” which Luciano Pavarotti elevated to iconic status. The opera’s music and majesty will be crowned by four sensational artists.

 

Performed in Italian with projected English translations.

Opera preview hosted by Maestro Salesky begins 45 minutes prior to each performance
