Puccini's Turandot was the legendary composer's only attempt at an opera based on myth. A reworking of a Chinese fable, Turandot allowed Puccini to play with sounds and styles. Cleveland Opera's production, which opens tonight, features lavish sets, international stars, and a princess with one hell of an attitude. The story's royal protagonist quizzes potential suitors with three riddles. If they miss one, she kills them. Talk about pressure! But the plot is secondary to the soaring arias on display.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: March 31. Continues through April 8
