Turandot

Turandot is indisputably one of the most mythical and important operas to be performed every year at the Arena di Verona. The show begins its performances on July 29 2021, with the extraordinary production by Franco Zeffirelli, which will bring to the stage a perfect recreation of imperial China, thanks to its stage design and backgrounds, combined with the costumes of the Oscar-winning designer Emi Wada. There’s no doubt that Turandot is one of the most important operas to be performed almost every year in Verona. Don’t miss it by buying the best tickets on our website.

The imposing cinematographic production by Franco Zeffirelli reproduces Imperial China thanks to its impressive scenery and large crowd scenes, and is enriched by the sumptuous costumes by Academy Award winning Japanese costume designer Emi Wada. Everything contributes to highlighting the atmosphere of the drama of enigmas per excellence, where life itself is at risk and the response is in the love that will melt the protagonist’s icy heart. Princess Turandot, who refuses to be seduced by any man, plays with the lives of her suitors, certain that nobody will win her challenge. Only Calaf will manage to really win the heart of Turandot and thus overcome the distance that keeps the princess far from true love.

Turandot is an opera in three acts structured by the magnificent composer Giacomo Puccini, who also birthed Madame Butterfly. Its composition was finished by Franco Alfano after the former’s death in 1926 and complemented by the book in Italian by Renato Simoni and Giuseppe Adami.

The plot focuses on the princess Turandot, in China. She refuses to be seduced by any man, playing with the life of her suitors by demanding that they answer three riddles if they want to marry her. If they answer incorrectly, it’s their death. However, prince Calaf can answer the three riddles correctly and, after some struggle, wins Turandot’s heart, bringing the princess closer to real love.
