FLORIDA GRAND OPERA’S SPECTACULAR TURANDOT WINS OVER CRITICS AND AUDIENCE!“An absorbing night of theater!”“As Turandot, the American soprano Lise Lindstrom displayed a powerful, sharply edged voice that had reserves to spareâ€¦her singing commanded the action.”“Conductor Ramon Tebar led a high-powered, emotional reading of the opera, full of fire and muscle, and he had a first-class orchestra to work with that was with him every step of the way.”

On Opening Night,the moment the opera ended the audience rose to their feet in thunderous applause. With a cast of more than 100, this production has enormous, stunning sets along with gorgeous costumes and principal singers direct from the Metropolitan Opera in New York. This is a spectacle not to be missed…dazzling, both for the eyes and the ears.Turandot by Giacomo Puccini. Libretto by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni.
The glory and cruelty of ancient China, some of opera’s most famous music, and the thrill of heroic voices create the theatrical experience that every opera lover dreams of. Puccini had an unmistakable melodic gift that enriched some of the world’s most beloved operas, andÂ Turandot, his final opera, represents the culmination of the Italian tradition of Grand Opera.The Ice Princess Turandot challenges the Unknown Prince to answer her three riddles, and he succeeds where so many others have failed. In the famous aria, â€œNessun dorma,â€ he in turn challenges her to learn his name.This production’s Turandot, Lise Lindstrom, and Calaf, Frank Porretta, thrilled Metropolitan Opera audiences this past season, and local favorite Elizabeth Caballero returns to sing LiÃ¹. The conductor of FGO’s recentÂ Lucia di Lammermoor,Ramon Tebar, returns to lead this outstanding cast.
