OperaDelaware presents Puccini's Turandot


Fri May 17 2024 at 07:30 pm to 10:00 pm


The Grand Opera House, Wilmington DE | Wilmington, DE

Puccini’s iconic Turandot includes one of opera's most beloved arias, “Nessun Dorma.” Whether you’ve enjoyed renditions by Pavarotti or Aretha Franklin, experiencing this timeless piece of music with live orchestra will be breathtaking.
Turandot was one of Puccini’s most forward-thinking pieces, and he set his magical tale in the mysterious and fantastical land of Peking. From the stirring 30-second overture that sets the scene for the executioner's axe, to the use of percussion throughout, Turandot was Puccini at his most daring.
Puccini died before the completion of Turandot, one of the seminal operatic works of all time. Composers Franco Alfano and Luciano Berio completed the work in 1926 and 2002 respectively. It remains one of opera's most compelling titles, driving audiences to the theater to experience showstopping arias like “Nessun Dorma”, “In questa reggia”, and “Tanto amore segreto” with live orchestra.
Don’t miss Turandot on May 17 & 19 at The Grand Opera House. Contact the box office at 302-442-7807 with any questions.
