PERFORMANCES TO REMEMBER
MARIA NOCKIN looks forward to
San Diego Opera's 2011 season
On 29 January, San Diego Opera will open its 2011 season with Giacomo Puccini's final masterpiece, Turandot. Its most famous aria 'Nessun Dorma' crowns the Chinese legend that tells of Prince Calaf who risks his life because he falls in love with Turandot, the legendary ice princess. Dramatic tenor Carlo Ventre will be the Prince who endeavors to answer the riddles she insists he solve or lose his head. The dazzling Lise Lindstrom, who was the toast of New York when she made her Metropolitan Opera début in that demanding role last season, portrays Turandot. Famed artist David Hockney's colorful sets will delight your eyes while Puccini's exhilarating music enchants your soul...
