Considered Puccini’s finest musical masterpiece, Turandot premiered in 1926, after the composer’s death. The opera transports audiences to a fantasy land ruled by the titular princess, who doesn’t want to marry. She gives her would-be suitors two options: answer three vexing riddles correctly, or die by beheading. Her plan is working perfectly, until Calaf comes to town and she meets her match. But first Turandot must try, one more time, to kill him.

Soprano and HGO Studio alumna Tamara Wilson (Turandot), tenor Kristian Benedikt in his HGO debut (Calaf), HGO Studio alumna and soprano Nicole Heaston (Liù), and bass and Studio alumnus Peixin Chen (King Timur) lead the diverse and globe-spanning cast. HGO Principal Guest Conductor Eun Sun Kim takes the podium for this superlative new production.
