ATLANTA OPERA: TURANDOT
Puccini’s epic tale centers around the Princess Turandot, who decapitates each suitor who fails to answer her riddles. Calaf falls in love with the ruthless Princess and heroically wins her ghastly game. Shockingly, Calaf proposes his own riddle to the Princess and puts his love and life in the hands of Turandot.
Italian tenor Gianluca Terranova, who made his Atlanta debut as Rodolfo in La bohème, will sing the role of Calaf for the first time. Marcy Stonikas will sing the role of Turandot. Music Director Arthur Fagen will conduct. Production by the famed French-Canadian duo Renaud Doucet and André Barbe. Co-production of Minnesota Opera, Seattle Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Utah Opera, and Cincinnati Opera.
