Gulfshore Opera presents
Jorge Parodi, conductor
The final work by the beloved Italian composer, Puccini, is well known to modern audiences thanks to opera’s most famous aria, Nessun Dorma, which has been performed by everyone from Luciano Pavarotti to Aretha Franklin and Jackie Evanco. In this fantasy fable setting filled with exotic splendor, Prince Calaf falls in love at first sight with the Ice Princess Turandot. She requires all her suitors to answer three riddles correctly, and all who fail are beheaded. The grandest Gulfshore Opera production to date ends the 10th anniversary season with the Naples Philharmonic.
