Puccini’s last opera is his most impressive and most lavish. Larger-than-life characters, and voices that measure up to their excessiveness. A torrent of captivating melodies, starting with the immortal Nessun dorma. An international cast, including a favourite of Montreal audiences, the incredibly moving Hiromi Omura as Liù.
Prince Calaf is in love with the cruel Princess Turandot. To marry her, he must solve three riddles, with a wrong answer resulting in his decapitation. With the help of his faithful servant Liù, Calaf will triumph, and love will melt the princess’s icy heart.
