Overview

Puccini creates a rich soundworld for this dark and erotic fairytale, which memorable arias, from Signore, Ascolta to Turandot’s defiant In Questa Reggia. Turandot also contains one of the most famous of all arias, Nessun Dorma, sung as Calaf anticipates winning the Princess’s hand.

Andrei Serban’s staging – one of the most spectacular in The Royal Opera’s repertory – transports you to a beautiful but savage world. Sally Jacobs' colourful sets and costumes are inspired by ancient Chinese culture, reflecting the traditional Chinese melodies woven into the score.

The opera is the story of Princess Turandot, who has sworn that no man shall marry her unless he can correctly answer three riddles. Prince Calaf, captivated by Turandot’s beauty, takes up the challenge, determined to win her heart or die in the attempt.

Nicola Luisotti (cond)
