Princess Turandot shows no mercy to those who seek her hand in marriage. Suitors travel from distant lands only to face three impossible riddles, with failure meaning death. When the exiled Prince Calaf falls for Turandot, he accepts her deadly challenge head-on. To Turandot’s dismay, he succeeds; but Calaf offers a way out of the marriage by giving Turandot a riddle of his own. Prevailing where others have failed, can Calaf melt Turandot’s icy heart?
Sung in Italian with English translations above the stage.
