WHAT: Turandot Opera Live
Friday October 12, 7pm Latchis Theater, 50 Main St, Brattleboro, VT

Thursday October 18, 7pm Academy of Music, 274 Main St, Northampton, MA

Turandot is Puccini's final opera, and on-point for the times we live in.

There are riddles to answer, death and torture to avoid, hearts to thaw, barriers of status, race and gender to transcend, so that Love may triumph against all odds. Exile and deportation are real threats, and happening; profound family betrayal and disappointment are 'in our face'.

You will witness powerful community participation, children and adults, a 'SWAT-team' chorus, a 'Rabble' chorus, gongs, clowning, solemnity, terror...

Our principals include Jenna Rae, Roseanne Ackerley, Alan Schneider, Cailin Marcel Manson, James Anderson, Elizabeth Wohl, Michael Duffin, Gary Clay, Charlie Berrios.

Thrilling community additions: specialist Chinese Gongs, child executioners, customized horror-movie special effects, offstage student brass and wind groups, non-ecumenical choral participation, community-sourced costuming of excellence, casting against gender assumptions, quick-witted English titling.

Tickets at $20, $50 premium, $15 student & senior discount, call Academy of Music or Brattleboro Music Center for group discounts
