“Turandot” in Utah

Turandot is Puccini’s “cruel princess.” She is vain, icy, and seemingly incapable of love. In keeping with her impenetrable persona, she announces that she will marry the man who can solve her three riddles but gravely punish those who cannot. Heads do roll until one clever prince appears and solves her trio of challenges. He then counters with a riddle of his own and Turandot is caught uncomfortably in a web of her own making.

Don’t miss this epic new production by design duo Renaud Doucet and Andre Barber that arrives in Salt Lake City after sold-out performances and rave reviews in Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and Seattle. From the spectacular music, including the sweeping aria “Nessun Dorma,” to the breathtaking pageantry of one of opera’s greatest hits, Turandot is certain to be the highlight of the season.
