Loyalty, innocence, sacrifice, family bonds and personal fulfillment are explored in this coming-of-age story that follows the knotted destinies of the four March sisters during the turbulent American Civil War period. Generations have grown up with Alcott’s characters, and Adamo’s melodic and tonal arias and ensembles sung by a star-studded cast powerfully communicate their strong emotions and the love that holds them together.

Based on a Persian fairy tale, Puccini’s grandest opera explores the heart of a woman imprisoned by the past. In ancient China, young men are literally dying to marry the princess Turandot. Time and again, she poses three riddles to her suitors, sentencing them to death if they fail. When the Prince of Tartary sees the icy beauty, he, too, falls under her spell. Will love and death continue to walk hand in hand? Or will passion free her frozen heart? This glorious operatic spectacle features the signature tenor aria “Nessun dorma.”

Single tickets: $25-$100
