Why See Atlanta Opera - Turandot?
what i did for love
An all time favorite, Puccini's Turandot put the grand in Grand Opera. Lavish, epic and heart-stopping, it is both the perfect production for opera aficionados and newcomers alike, displaying just what the medium is capable of. Written in 1924, its roots delve far earlier, from a Persian poem from the 12th century. Puccini's version instead transports us to the ancient kingdom of Peking in China, where the cold-hearted Princess Turandot is to take suitor.
As the realm faces upheaval, peace depends on her choosing a suitor, but after swearing off men after the violent death of a beloved ancestor, its no easy task for even the most ardent admirer.
When the exiled Prince Calaf (Gianluca Terranova) decides to try his hand at Turandot's (Marcy Stonikas) mind-bending and often fatal challenges, it seems the bloodthirsty ruler may have met her match. Don't miss this opulent production that embodies the spirit of this strange tale of ruthlessness and love hard won.
