Brave men travel from all over the world to attempt to melt the heart of the beautiful ice princess, Turandot, by solving three riddles. Answer correctly and win her eternal love; answer incorrectly and lose your head.
Set in ancient China, come and bathe in Giacomo Puccini’s vocally extravagant final opera Turandot which features some of the composers most glorious music including the famous tenor aria “Nessun Dorma” (None shall sleep). The Sarasota Opera premiere of Turandot will mark the largest production ever staged at Sarasota Opera.
