Description

New production

In his last, unfinished opera, Giacomo Puccini once again takes up the theme of love and death. On the one hand, Turandot, for whose love men have to die, on the other Liù, who dies for love, and between them Calaf, who solves the riddle and overcomes Turandot. Influenced by his own personal experiences, Puccini wrote a story that added a psychological level to Carlo Gozzi’s earlier fairytale – and that asks questions about the nature of true love. It was not by chance that he noted on a sketch for the final duet: “and then Tristan” – eternal desire, in other words, or fulfilment in transcendence?

More information is available on the opera house's official website.
