The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UNCW presents Metropolitan Opera Live in HD featuring Puccini’s Turandot. The opera, conducted by Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, stars Christine Goerke as the frosty Chinese princess who has forsaken all men. Roberto Aronica sings Calàf, risking his head for her hand with the famed aria “Nessun dorma.”
Olli features 10 productions and live interviews with cast, crew, production and other behind-the-scenes extras.
Shows are subtitled in English, and include a guest lecture 45 minutes prior to the broadcast. Distinguished guest speakers include local opera lover Jerry Nolan, as well as UNCW Department of Music professors Nancy King, Barry Salwen, and Helena Spencer.
All operas are broadcast live, unless noted as “encore” which means it is recorded live and rebroadcast.
Individual Tickets: $20 OLLI members, $24 nonmembers.
