A love story on the grandest scale.
Puccini’s final opera is set in the fantastical realm of Legendary China. The cold-hearted Princess Turandot has many suitors but they must solve three riddles correctly to win her hand – and failure leads to death. Finally, a handsome prince solves the questions but Turandot is still reluctant to marry him. The prince himself gives a challenge to Turandot – if she cannot learn his name by morning then they must be married, but if she discovers it, he will face his mortal end.
