Minnesota Opera’s “Turandot”

This weekend we shall hear Puccini’s “Turandot” at Minnesota Opera.

The Minnesota Opera “Turandot” is a new production, co-produced with Cincinnati Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Seattle Opera and Utah Opera.

Although the physical production was constructed here in Minneapolis, Minneapolis does not have the honor of its first presentation. The production has already been seen elsewhere: Pittsburgh in 2011 and Seattle in 2012. Minneapolis will be the third city to see its very own production.

The production is scheduled for Salt Lake City in 2014 and Cincinnati in 2015.
