Our season’s final production is Puccini’s “Turandot,” the ancient story of a cold and bloodthirsty Chinese princess.
Any man who desired to wed her must first have answered her riddles. If he failed, he was beheaded! Prince Calaf, mesmerized by her beauty, vows to meet the challenge. Containing some of the most spectacular music ever written, including the famous aria “Nessun dorma,” Turandot is one of the largest productions that Mississippi Opera has ever done. Join us for a spectacular season finale!
