Turandot


Puccini’s epic final masterpiece

From the moment Calaf sees Turandot, he is consumed with love. To melt this princess’s icy heart, however, Calaf must answer three impossible riddles — or face execution. Will his passion triumph, or will Calaf lose everything in the fatal gamble of love?

Ontario-born soprano Othalie Graham debuts on the Canadian stage in her signature role of Turandot, and tenor David Pomeroy wears his heart on his sleeve as Calaf. Experience the timeless operatic blockbuster, set in mythical China, with lavish scenery, costumes, and unforgettable music!
