Turandot tells the compelling story of a Chinese princess who cruelly executes potential suitors if they cannot answer her riddles. But when a handsome stranger with all the right answers arrives, she becomes the one without a clue and finds herself the student in a real-life lesson in love. Heart-string strumming soprano Susan Neves and talented tenor Frank Porretta team up with Chinese bass Hao-Jiang Tian, singing the role of deposed King Timur in the Forbidden City, to bring this beautiful legend to life.

Pittsburgh Opera is known for its high-quality productions that enrich the lives of showgoers with highly hearable librettos. This particular show is hosted in the luxurious Benedum Center, a historic venue that features 18-foot-high mirrors and a 4,700-pound chandelier centerpiece.

Reviews

Past productions at Pittsburgh Opera, including Falstaff and last year’s The Barber of Seville received positive reviews from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, which also repeatedly named Pittsburgh Opera’s productions as some of the decade’s best classical music in Pittsburgh: > * The season-opening production was as well-staged as any opera has been at the Benedum Center in some time. – Andrew Druckenbrod on The Barber of Seville > * Technically it is impossible to steal the show when you are already the main character. But somehow that’s what baritone Mark Delavan did with his brilliantly funny portrayal of Sir John Falstaff in the Pittsburgh Opera’s production of Verdi’s Falstaff.Andrew Druckenbrod

Benedum Center

The cloak of sparkling newness belies Benedum Center’s deep history in the theatrical world. Opened to regal fanfare in 1928, the theater then waded through the downs and ups of history until a $43 million restoration buffed its surfaces back to their former glory in 1984. Today, the 90 chandeliers dangling from the ceiling, the Grand Lobby’s mirrors and marble, and most of the 1,500 feet of brass rail throughout are all original. The centerpiece is the main chandelier, a 4,700-pound, 20-foot-high, 12-foot-wide behemoth that sparkles to remind visitors of the theater’s glory days.
