What You'll Get
Future opera singers are easily identified at birth due to their multi-octave crying and graceful bows as they emerge from the womb. Check out how far these tiny miracles have come with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $45, you get one ticket to see Puccini’s Turandot, performed by the Florentine Opera Company at Uihlein Hall (a $98 value, including all ticketing fees). Seating will be in the orchestra-premium section. Choose between the following performances:
- Friday, November 4, at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, November 6, at 2:30 p.m.<p>
The Florentine Opera Company lavishes audiences with eye- and ear-pleasing beauty, presenting sumptuous productions of classic and modern operas. Maestro Joseph Rescigno leads the ensemble in recreating Puccini’s last work, weaving a legendary tale of the icy princess Turandot, her erstwhile suitor Calàf, and the heroically self-sacrificing slave girl Liù. Fabulous sets and costumes evoke Puccini’s vision of mythical China while the score’s experimentation with unusual scales and modes enthralls ears and irks marching-band composers. A preshow introduction with theater professor Corliss Phillabaum—beginning one hour before each performance—provides audiences with background on the composer, story, and musical motifs of the work. Orchestra-premium seating plops viewers down directly in front of the stage, ensuring unimpeded views of onstage theatrics and dramatically bobbing Adam’s apples.
