Event Details

Turandot’s beauty is matched only by her cruelty. To her admirers, she offers a deadly game: solve three riddles and win her hand in marriage. Answer incorrectly and die by the executioner’s blade. As the latest suitor is beheaded before a stunned crowd, a stranger steps forward to accept the challenge, hiding a riddle of his own.

The most ambitious and dazzling opera of Puccini’s career is reimagined in a new production by legendary director Robert Wilson, “a towering figure in the world of experimental theater.” The New York Times.
