Maryland Lyric Opera launches its new season with concert performances of Puccini’s final opera, Turandot. More than 175 artists take the stage for this epic fairy tale, whose unforgettable music includes the beloved tenor aria “Nessun Dorma.” The love triangle at the heart of the drama features Alexandra LoBianco in her MDLO debut as the icy princess Turandot; MDLO favorite Jonathan Burton, who returns in the role of the noble suitor Calàf; and Nicole Heaston, who makes her MDLO debut as the lovelorn Liù. The cast also includes acclaimed bass Morris Robinson as Timur and features many alumni of the MDLO Institute in supporting roles. Marshalling the supersize musical forces of the MDLO Orchestra and Chorus is conductor Louis Salemno. Performed in Italian with projected English titles. Running time: Approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including 1 intermission. Visit www.MDLO.org for more information.
