Programme Note

Puccini’s thrilling final opera performed as the latest of Opera North’s acclaimed concert stagings.

In ancient Beijing, Princess Turandot decrees that she will marry the prince who can solve three riddles. Those who fail are put to death. Prince Calaf, dazzled by her beauty, determines to win her despite the pleas of the servant girl Liu who is secretly in love with him.

Puccini’s last opera includes music of exotic colour and overwhelming power, including the famous and instantly recognisable Nessun Dorma.

Following in the wake of its world-beating Ring cycle, Turandot is the latest in Opera North’s celebrated series of concert stagings of epic operas.
