The North Carolina Summer Opera, the newest opera organization established in 2018, is proud to present its first production, Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot, in semi-staged workshop, sung in Italian with English subtitles and piano accompaniment.

Turandot, a Chinese Princess, has reached the age to be married, but she is horrified by how princesses (women) were treated by their husbands. To obtain permission to marry her, a suitor has to solve three riddles. Any wrong answer results in death. She has been killing suitors one by one until an unknown Prince appears…

The event is free. You generous donations will help to enable this new opera organization to produce more operas in the future.
