“Turandot” Opera Coming to UNT

April 26 @ 8:00 pm


By Devin Rardin

The University of North Texas College of Music’s Symphony Orchestra, conducted by David Itkin, and Grand Chorus, directed by Allen Hightower, will be performing Puccini’s Turandot.

Prince Calaf has to answer three riddles to marry the beautiful Princess Turandot, and  his failure to answer correctly means certain death. This is the premise behind Giacomo Puccini’s opera-“Turandot,” which the UNT symphony orchestra will perform on April 26 at the Murchison Performing Arts Center. The show will start at 8 p.m. and is free for UNT students. Tickets are $10 for the public and $8 for UNT faculty. The opera, conducted by David Itkin and directed by Allen Hightower, will feature more than 275 performers including students, faculty, and guest artist, Arnold Rawls.

 Turandot is the last great Italian opera written by a master,” Itkin says. “The opportunity to hear a presentation such as this at this level of quality is a rarity.”
