Turandot

Turandot

Presented by Austin Opera at The Long Center for the Performing Arts

Austin Opera concludes its 2019- 2020 Season with Puccini’s final opera, Turandot, April 25 – May 3, 2020, at the Long Center.

Turandot, a beautiful princess with a heart of ice, meets her match when the prince Calaf dares to answer her deadly riddles with the promise of love. A selfless sacrifice by Calaf’s faithful servant ultimately awakens true emotion in Turandot, proving that in the game of love, you can’t win the top prize without giving away your heart. Puccini’s final masterwork features one of the most iconic and powerful arias in all of opera, “Nessun dorma,” transporting audiences to another time and place, a world of heightened spectacle where myth comes to life through music.

Starring in the title role is Alexandra Loutsion, making her Austin Opera debut, but no stranger to this demanding role – garnering praise for her portrayal of the ice princess nationally. Her doomed prince is performed by returning tenor Jonathan Burton, who was last seen in Ariadne auf Naxos. Directing this production is Garnett Bruce, an Austin Opera favorite, returning to Austin after last directing Madama Butterfly in 2017.

With exquisite, classic sets and costumes from Kansas City Opera, this epic opera is a feast for the senses.

Total Time: approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes in length with one 25- minute intermission

*Patrons must be 8 years of age or older to attend.
