No man shall ever possess her – the Chinese princess Turandot sets three riddles for every man that comes to woo her. So far none have been able to solve the riddles, and have paid with their heads. Then an unknown prince achieves the impossible: he correctly answers all three questions. But Turandot is still unwilling to surrender to him. So the Prince is ready to lay down his life if she can find out his name by morning. Throughout the night, no one may sleep: everyone must try to discover his name...

Calaf's aria "Nessun dorma" is what made Giacomo Puccini's last opera Turandot world famous. At Bregenz it rings out into the night against the imposing backdrop of a dragon-shaped wall on Lake Constance. Marco Arturo Marelli's stage set makes use of Chinese symbols of power. The stage wall is inspired by the world's longest man-made structure, the Great Wall of China. At Bregenz the wall is criss-crossed by over two hundred terracotta warriors, some of them sky-high, others half-submerged in the water.
