An Opera by Giacomo Puccini
Directed by Matthew Haney
February 27 at the Alberta Bair Theater
Set in China, this is the story of the forbidding Princess Turandot. Any suitor interested in marrying her must solve three riddles or die. Prince Calaf passes the test, but she still won’t marry him. He then puts her to the test – if she can find out his name before the next dawn, he will die. Otherwise, she must marry him. Turandot contains one of the most famous arias in opera – Nessun Dorma.
