Opera Colorado closes its 40th Anniversary Season on a high note with a breathtaking production of Turandot, featuring a Colorado Children’s Chorale ensemble. Puccini’s fantastical tale features a magnificent chorus and the iconic tenor aria, “Nessun dorma.” Those who wish to marry the fearsome and beautiful Princess Turandot must win a deadly game of riddles. Though she has sworn never to marry, the clever Prince Calàf has a riddle of his own, which may open the door to love.
