Turandot: Deutsche Oper Berlin

About the Event

The Deutsche Oper Berlin presents Giacomo Puccini's 'Turandot' in a production by Lorenzo Fioroni.

Society lives in terror of Princess Turandot. Matrimony alone seems likely to end the violence, yet no suitor has managed to solve her riddles and win her hand. Time after time the same scene is played out, ending in yet another execution. Against all expectations, Calaf, the son of an exiled potentate from a far‐off country, breaks the chain of brutality.

Puccini spent the last four years of his life working on 'Turandot', basing his opera on Carlo Gozzi's fairytale play from 1762. Far from conjuring up an endearing, doll‐like China, the exotic tones of his richest and most dissonant score present us with a world steeped in an atmosphere of inconceivable cruelty.

In Italian, with German and English surtitles.
