Hawaii Opera Theatre presents Puccini’s Turandot, a classic work that has been a favorite amongst opera lovers for generations. Turandot, at times considered a complicated piece, was finished by Franco Alfano, as Puccini died before its completion.
Set in China and performed in Italian, the story revolves around the icy, dare we say evil lead character, Turandot, portrayed in our production by Susan Foster, whose past performances in the role of Turandot with Opera Australia, the San Francisco Opera, for Greek National Opera, and Savonlinna Opera Festival have amazed audiences around the world.
Jay Hunter Morris, whose acclaimed performance in the role of Siegfried with The Metropolitan Opera’s presentation of Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle brought him universal acclaim, will be making his debut in the role of Calàf, the brave, albeit naive, stranger in a strange land, who would risk his life, then offer to give it freely for the love of the Princess.
Calàf must solve three riddles in order to win the hand of the Princess. Should he beat the challenge, will the cold Turandot uphold her end of the bargain?
Find out just how far one man will go for Love… and one woman will go to avoid it!
