Pittsburgh Opera continues its 78th season with Puccini’s masterpiece Turandot, at the Benedum Center March 25 – April 2.

Set in ancient China, Turandot is one of the most popular operas of all time - a lavish production full of dazzling sets and costumes, beautiful music, and epic singing.

The opera's story involves Prince Calaf, who falls in love with the icy Princess Turandot. To marry her, he must solve three riddles; a single wrong answer results in death.

Alexandra Loutsion makes her long-awaited role debut as Princess Turandot. Thiago Arancam makes his Pittsburgh Opera debut as her suitor Calaf, having sung the role previously in Auckland, Caracas, and Naples, Florida.

Even first-time opera-goers will recognize Calaf’s powerful aria "Nessun dorma," which is a staple of dramatic cinematic moments, sporting events, and Italian tire commercials alike.

Can Calaf win Turandot’s heart without losing his head? See why Turandot is an all-time favorite.

Renaud Doucet directs. Antony Walker conducts.

Tickets start at just $12 and are available online.
