Shanghai Opera House: Giacomo Puccini's Turandot in Shanghai

Date: Jan 24-26 - 7:15 pm

Venue: Shanghai Grand Theater Lyric Theater

Price: 180-880 yuan

In Ancient Peking, the beautiful, icy Princess Turandot announced that she would marry the man who can solve her three riddles, but gravely punished those who could not. Heads rolled until the arrival of a clever prince who was determined to win over the princess or die to try. He solved her trio of challenges and then offered Turandot his life if she could solve the riddle of his name. Will true love be enough to soften the vengeful princess' heart? Turandot is Puccini's final opera (unfinished at his death) and perhaps as a result, it is by far and away his most musically adventurous.
