Opera Hong Kong and New York City Opera Perform Puccini’s ‘Turandot’
Why We Recommend it
This production of Puccini’s final and unfinished opera, a dark tale of desire infused with Chinese cultural elements, features Hong Kong talent alongside acclaimed international performers.
Set in ancient Beijing, the emperor is seeking a fearless prince to take Princess Turandot’s hand in marriage with only one condition: the suitor has to solve three riddles posed by the princess; any wrong answers would lead to execution.
