Official Event Listing

Opera in three acts (1926)

Puccini’s final opera is a glorious pageant of rich colour, dance and drama.

In the court of Princess Turandot (Anna Pirozzi), suitors who fail to solve her riddles are brutally killed. But when a mysterious Prince (Yonghoon Lee) answers one correctly, suddenly he holds all the power – and a glorious secret. When life hangs in the balance, can love conquer all?

Puccini’s score is rich in musical marvels (featuring the famous aria ‘Nessun dorma’), while Andrei Serban’s production draws on Chinese theatrical traditions to evoke a colourful fantasy tableau of ancient Peking. Antonio Pappano conducts.
