Live from The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

Puccini’s final opera is a glorious pageant of rich colour, dance and drama.
In the court of Princess Turandot, suitors who fail to solve her riddles are brutally killed. But when a mysterious prince answers one correctly, suddenly he holds all the power – and a secret.

Puccini’s score is rich in musical marvels (featuring the famous aria ‘Nessun dorma’) while Andrei Serban’s production draws on traditional Chinese theatrical traditions to evoke a colourful fantasy tableau of ancient Peking. Antonio Pappano conducts Anna Pirozzi in the title role and Yonghoon Lee as Calaf.
