   Opening night for Seattle Opera's production of Puccini's Turandot will be Oct. 19. In this exotic opera, Prince Calaf, keeping his true identity a secret from his enemies, is entranced by Princess Turandot. To win her hand, he must answer three riddles or face execution. He answers correctly, then poses a riddle of his own, which becomes a test of love, life, and courage.
