Turandot Music by Giacomo Puccini Text by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni Performed in Italian with English supertitles Opera at the Academy Imperial ultimatum In ancient China, the beautiful Princess Turandot reigns with an iron fist and an ice-cold heart. To her wooers, she has issued a decree: he who can answer her riddles will win her hand—all others will face beheading. When a mysterious man passes her test, will she finally open her heart to love? Puccini’s final work is one of his grandest, featuring forbidden romance and gorgeous melodies, including the rousing anthem “Nessun dorma.” This kaleidoscopic co-production, called “miraculous” by Opera News, features stunning sets, costumes, staging and choreography by Barbe & Doucet.
