Arena di Verona
by Giacomo Puccini
Do you have an appreciation for tales and legends from the East? Then you will fall in love with Turandot, Giacomo Puccini's last opera and his most frequently performed work at the Arena.
“Once upon a time” in Beijing. Anyone who wants to marry Princess Turandot (a “divine beauty” with a heart of stone) must solve three riddles, and if they fail, they lose their head. An unknown prince succeeds, but Turandot refuses to marry him. So, the stranger makes her a counteroffer: if she can guess his name before dawn, she can have him executed, otherwise, she must honour their agreement.
“No one shall sleep” because Turandot is returning to the Arena in a magical production by director and set designer Franco Zeffirelli, accompanied by costumes from the Oscar-winning Emi Wada. From 8 to 29 June, the magnificence of the Forbidden City will unfold before your eyes during four performances dedicated to Giacomo Puccini's final masterpiece. An opera that, like the stars, will make you tremble “with love and hope”.
