Three riddles 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 exotic tale 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!

Don’t miss this unforgettable evening as we say farewell to Maestro Alfred Savia, whose vision has been the driving force behind numerous opera productions in Evansville over the past 30 years.
