Turandot - Puccini (opera concerning romantic prince & cold-hearted princess 2 x CDs )

£6.99

Product description

Giacomo Puccini's (1858-1924) "Turandot" was still unfinished, at the time of his passing in 1924, although Giacomo left a number of 'outline notes', that Franco Alfano worked from, to finish the opera, in 1926.

The opera's story is set in China and involves Prince Calaf, who falls in love with the cold Princess Turandot. To obtain permission to marry her, a suitor has to solve three riddles; any wrong answer results in death. Calaf passes the test, but Turandot still refuses to marry him. He offers her a way out: if she is able to learn his name before dawn the next day, then at daybreak he will die.
