Concert Description

In the final program of his 10th season as DSO Music Director, Leonard Slatkin leads the DSO in a concert setting of Puccini’s final opera, Turandot. In the composer’s vision of ancient China, three riddles stand before any suitor wishing to marry Princess Turandot, and one wrong answer means death.
