Virginia Opera's Turandot with the Richmond Symphony
- Date Sunday, April 2, 2017
- Time 2:30 pm
- Venue Carpenter Theatre
Based on an ancient fable set in China, this story of the legendary Princess Turandot, so desirable that men risked their heads for her hand in marriage, weaves the quest for love with the ultimate consequences. From the opening moments of Puccini’s extravagant and exotic score, you will be thrown into a world of suspense and horror. Featuring “Nessun dorma,” one of the most famous opera arias of all time, and sung by a stellar cast of internationally recognized singers, led by audience favorite Kelly Cae Hogan (Salome 2015) and Derek Taylor (La Boheme 2009), you will be enthralled by this epic new production, under the direction of Virginia Opera’s beloved Lillian Groag (La Traviata 2015).
Sung in Italian with English Supertitles
