About Turandot
La Bohème. Tosca. Madama Butterfly. Turandot. Puccini saved his most musically adventurous opera for last. Containing some of the greatest operatic music ever written, Turandot blends epic chorus sections with unforgettable intimate moments, and is the culmination of Puccini’s career. This three act opera by Giacomo Puccini and completed by Franco Alfano, with libretto in Italian by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni is one of the most grand opera offerings and is full of thrilling choruses, booming orchestrations, and a cast consisting of all of ancient China. This magnificent work—which features Pavarotti’s signature aria, “Nessun dorma”—promises to make the kick off of the Vancouver Opera’s 2017/18 Season a not-to-be missed event.
