As the slave girl Liu, the Cuban-American soprano – and clear local favorite – Elizabeth Caballero gave a meltingly effective performance. The role is not one of grand passion but of gentle, self-sacrificing love, and Caballero had the right voice for the part. In the aria Signore, ascolta where she begs Calaf not to risk his head for Turandot, her warm, middle-range tones and floating high notes made for a moving plea to the prince.

But the night’s most compelling singing comes from the comparably unknown Elizabeth Caballero, a young lyric soprano who has largely made her career with FGO. Her tones are limpid, creamy, Tebaldian. And she can act. As Caballero sings, you really might believe that a girl could fall in love with a man self-centered enough to sing away the night as innocents are murdered because of his googly-eyed obstinacy. Which is touching, I suppose, if a little depressing. We already knew love makes us blind. Did we need to know it makes us sociopaths as well?
