Synopsis

The mysterious Princess Turandot requires any man who wishes to propose to her and thus sit on the throne next to her, to solve three riddles. Those who fail to solve the riddles lose their lives under the inexorable sword of the executioner. The shed blood of hundreds of suitors soaks the streets of Beijing, the Chinese people groan under the tyrannical rule of the ice-cold princess. All hopes rest on a nameless prince, who one day, with his old blind father and his unconditional follower Liù, comes from the distant realm of the Tartars to the palace of the dreaded virgin ruler. Miraculously, he solves Turandot‘s diabolical riddles. When she refuses to extend her hand for the Tartar prince, he asks the restive princess a riddle himself: she shall call him his name, which nobody knows. Turandot pulls out all the stops of her power and imposes a ban on her people not to sleep until the stranger’s name is found ...


„Nobody shall sleep - Nessun dorma!“, with this, the famous aria of the prince begins. He sings about the dreaded Turandot and his ever growing flame of love for this merciless and fascinating woman. Giacomo Puccini succeeded in producing one of the best-known and most popular arias in opera literature, a masterpiece for every dramatic tenor. With a dazzling and dramatically blazing music full of stirring melodies, the Maestro from Lucca takes us into the distant and exotic fairytale worlds of the moon-cold princess. Puccini‘s glistening and mysteriously jagged sounds find their ideal echo in the rugged rocky landscape of the St. Margarethen Quarry. The enigmatic Turandot is one of the most demanding operatic roles of all, and hardly any music is as close to our hearts as the moving pleas and complaints of the sacrificing Liù. Giacomo Puccini ignites a true whirlwind of emotions, in which even the cold heart of the icy princess is melted by the fire of love.
