Turandot – Arena di Verona Opera Festival 2021

Turandot is the name of the “girl from Turan”. She is a princess from the Persian fairy tale collection A Thousand and One Days. The opera takes place in the Imperial Palace in Central Asia. As is so often the case in fairy tales, the suitor has to solve three riddles. If he solves it, he will have the beautiful princess as his wife, otherwise, he will have to pay for his passion with death. Kalaf, son of refugees, falls in love with the princess and was able to solve the puzzles. Even so, the princess remains cruel. Only Kalaf’s passion breaks their arrogance and the two become happy.
Turandot is the last opera by Giacomo Puccini, who died in 1924. Giuseppe Adami wrote the libretto based on the play by Carlo Gozzi. The opera was completed by Franco Alfano after his death and premiered on April 25, 1926, at La Scala in Milan.
The operatic aria by Kalaf “Nessun dorma” (Nobody Sleeps) is one of the most famous arias of all. She was a.o. sung by the unforgettable Luciano Pavarotti (one of the three tenors) on the occasion of the Soccer World Cup in Italy in 1990 in the Caracalla thermal baths and thus a world hit.
