The Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra rescheduled the April 10, 2021 performance of Puccini’s Turandot to the 2021-2022 Season. At this time, the need for social distancing has made it impossible to accommodate the large collaboration of Orchestra, Chorus, UE Opera and multiple soloists on the Victory Theatre stage.
The three-act lyric drama is the exotic tale of three riddles which stand before any suitor wishing to marry Princess Turandot, and one wrong answer means death. A tour de force for orchestra and chorus, Giacomo Puccini’s opera of ancient China is told through extremely sumptuous and evocative music. Its impassioned Nessun Dorma, popularized by Luciano Pavarotti, is the most famous aria of all time. Turandot ranks among the top 20 operas in terms of its public presentations
