Los Angeles Opera - Turandot
As savage as she is beautiful, Princess Turandot has concocted a series of nefarious tasks to put off potential suitors. If you lose, you die at the hands of the executioner, if you win? Well, no one ever has. That is until the besotted Prince Calaf accepts the challenge. With a little savagery of his own, he throws himself into the tasks, growing ever closer to the hard-hearted Princess. This stunning production with a design from David Hockney marks the triumphant return of Puccini's fantasy to the LA Opera for the first time in two decades!
