MET Live in HD: TURANDOT

Sunday, October 20, 2pm | Performing Arts Center SLO

To order tickets by phone, call (805) 756-4849. Box office times here.

Franco Zeffirelli’s celebrated production of Turandot is set in China, involving Turnadot’s suitor, Prince Calaf, who must solve three riddles to obtain permission to marry her and defy death. Calaf passes the test, but because Turandot still refuses to marry him, he offers her a challenge: if she learns his name before the next dawn, he agrees to die at daybreak.

Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Christine Goerke as Turnadot. As Calàf, Roberto Aronica sings the famed aria “Nessun dorma.” Eleonora Buratto is the slave girl Liù, and James Morris is Calàf’s long-lost father, Timur.

Sung in Italian with English, German, Spanish, and Italian subtitles.

ESTIMATED RUN TIME: 3 HRS 2 MINS, 2 intermissions - READ SYNOPSIS
