Puccinis Opera Turandot

Turandot was the final opera written and composed by Giacomo Puccini and was first performed on 25 April 1926.

the story

Puccini’s Opera Turandot

Turandot was the final opera written and composed by Giacomo Puccini, however, he died in 1924 before he could finish it. It was completed by Franco Alfano in 1926 and was first performed on 25 April 1926.

  • Act 1
  • The Opera is set in Ancient China and tells the story of a Prince who falls in love with a cold princess.

    In order to marry Princess Turandot, suitors must answer three riddles and if they get them wrong they are sentenced to death. The Prince of Persia is the latest suitor to get the riddles wrong and is sentenced to die at moonrise. The crowds are blood-thirsty and they push forwards and in the midst of the hustle and bustle an old man falls to the ground and his faithful servant Liu calls for help. From the crowd appears a handsome young man and he recognises the master and servant as his long lost father, Timur, the deposed King of Tartary. Afraid for his own life Calaf tells Timur never to say his name out loud as they are still running from their enemies who took over their Kingdom. Timur tells Prince Calaf that Liu has been his most faithful servant and when Prince Calaf asks her why, she says it is because Calaf once smiled upon her many years ago.

    When the moon appears in the sky the Prince of Persia is about to be executed but the crowd sympathises with this young man with such a kind demeanour and try to change the mind of Princess Turandot to spare him his life. However, she dismisses their cries for clemency and cruelly tells the executioner to carry on with his duty.

    As soon as Prince Calaf sees Turandot he falls in love with her and is determined to answer the three riddles and marry her. Three of the Princesses’ ministers, Ping, Pang and Pong try to change his mind as they do not want any more bloodshed but Prince Calaf has made his decision. He bangs the gong and Turandot accepts his challenge.

  • Act 2
  • The Ministers, Ping, Pang and Pong are talking about Turandot’s previous unsuccessful suitors and how they would like to be free of the Princess’s bloody reign. As the trumpets sound the crowds gather under the warm morning sun to watch Prince Calaf try to answer Princess Turandot’s riddles. Before she arrives, her father, who is sitting on his throne, pleads with Prince Calaf to walk away from this challenge but Calaf refuses.

    When Princess Turandot arrives she begins by telling the story of her ancestor, Princess Lou-Ling who was brutally murdered by a conquering prince and wishing to avenge her death Turandot explains she has turned against all men and no man will ever possess her.
    Turandot then begins her first riddle:
    “What is born each night and dies at dawn?”
    “Hope!” Prince Calaf declares. Correct.
    Turandot begins her second riddle:
    “What flickers red and warm like a flame, yet is not fire?”
    “Blood.” Calaf is right again. This time the Princess is unnerved. No one has correctly answered her second riddle before.
    She asks her third riddle:
    “What is like ice yet burns?”
    There is silence from the crowd but a few moments later Calaf says “Turandot” and he is right.

    The crowd cheers and is thankful that Calaf will not be killed and no further lives will be lost in this way. However, Princess Turandot realises what this means and pleads with her father to spare her marriage to this stranger. Her father refuses but Prince Calaf decides to give her a riddle of his own and lets her have until dawn to solve it. If she answers correctly he will die but if she gets it wrong she must marry him. She accepts. The riddle is “What is my name?”

  • Act 3
  • That evening Calaf hears the decree that no one in Peking will sleep until Turandot finds out the name of her suitor. If she does not find out his name, everyone within the city will be killed. Prince Calaf sings the famous aria, Nessun Dorma (nobody sleeps).

    Ping, Pang and Pong try to convince Calaf to change his mind but he refuses. A mob threatens Calaf but they are distracted by soldiers dragging in Liu and Timur. Calaf tries to convince the mob that only he knows his own name but Liu who is ever faithful to Timur cries out that she knows the name of the stranger. She is then taken to Turandot who orders her to be tortured until she gives up the name she knows. But Liu would rather die than betray Calaf. Turandot is impressed by Liu’s loyalty and she asks how she is able to remain silent. “Love,” answers Liu. But then Liu grabs a dagger from one of he soldiers and kills herself.

    Calaf calls Turandot the Princess of Death and kisses her forcefully and she begins to weep, for that is the first time she has ever been kissed. Calaf then tells her his true name.

    Prince Calaf is sitting on the throne when Turandot turns to the crowd and tells them that she has learned the name of this stranger and his name is “Love.”

    Lyrics from the famous Aria Nessun Dorma

  • Italian Text
  • Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!
    Tu pure, o, Principesa,
    Nella tua fredda stanza,
    Guardi le stele
    Che tremano d’amore
    E di speranza.
    Ma il mio mistero e chiuso in me,
    Il nome mio nessun sapra!
    No, no, sulla tua bocca lo diro
    Quando la luce splendera!
    Ed il mio bacio sciogliera il silenzio
    Che ti fa mia!
    (Il nome suo nessun sapra!…
    e noi dovrem, ahime, morir!)
    Diledua, o note!
    Tramontate, stelle!
    Tramontate stele!
    All’alba vincero!
    Vincero, vincero!

  • English Translation
  • Nobody shall sleep!…
    Nobody shall sleep!
    Even you, o Princess,
    In your cold room,
    Watch the stars,
    That tremble with love and with hope.
    But my secret is hidden within me,
    My name no one shall know…
    No!… No!…
    On your mouth I will tell it when the light shines.
    And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!…
    (No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.)
    Vanish, o night!
    Set, stars! Set, stars!
    At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!

    It was actually made famous by Pavarotti singing this Aria at the 1990 Football World Cup in Italy.

Andrea Bocelli - Bio
bocelli-bio

Andrea Bocelli was born on
22 September, 1958 at the family farm in Lajatico and like Puccini and Mascagni, is from Tuscany.

view biography
Andrea Angel Bocelli is an Italian tenor whose music covers the genres of both pop and classical styles. He has been credited with bringing classical music to the top of the international pop charts and is a highly regarded cross-over performer with successful albums of both classical and pop music. He has sold over eighty million records worldwide and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song for his duet with Celine Dion, ‘The Prayer’.

Bocelli showed a talent for music from an early age and started playing the piano when he was just six years old. His parents encouraged their musically talented son and he also learned to play the flute, saxophone, guitar, trumpet and drums. He had been born with poor eyesight and completely lost his sight after a football accident when he was twelve years old. This incident, though tragic in nature, also instilled in him a special kind of sensitivity and added depth to his personality that is often reflected in his music.

After leaving school in 1980, he studied law at the University of Pisa. He performed in piano bars in the evenings to earn some money but his big break came in1992 when a demo tape containing Bocelli’s rendition of the song ‘Miserere’ was sent to Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti. Pavarotti was highly impressed by the young musician and they recorded a duet together that became a smash hit across Europe.

He accompanied Italian rock star Zucchero on his European concert tour in 1993 and sang duets with him but was also given solo sets in the concert. He performed at a concert at the Teatro Romolo Valli in Reggio Emilia in December the same year.

He entered the Sanremo Music Festival where he won the preliminary round with the song ‘Miserere’, and participated in the main Sanremo Festival competition with ‘Il mare calmo della sera’ and won the newcomers section. He released his debut album ‘Il mare calmo della sera’ in 1994 following this win. His album ‘Songo’ was released in 1999 and it reached the top spots in pop album charts all over the world and registered worldwide sales of over 10 million copies. He was nominated for the Best New Artist at the Grammys – the first time a classical musician had been nominated for that category since 1961.
The album ‘Sacred Arias’, released in 1999 featured music composed in traditional Christian style. It had the tracks ‘Ave Maria (Funeral for a Friend)’, and ‘Panis Angelicus’. It reached at No.1 on the Canadian, Italian, and Netherlands album charts.

In 2002, his album ‘Sentimento’ was released and Lorin Maazel, along with the London Symphony Orchestra, was the conductor of the album. The album was critically praised and won several awards and accolades.
His album ‘Amore’ was released in January 2006 for the Valentine’s Day season. A remake of the Elvis Presley’s song ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ was featured on this album. It also had the duet, ‘Somos Novios (It’s Impossible)’ which he had sung with Christina Aguilera.

In 2009, he released his first ever Christmas album, ‘My Christmas’ which was a compilation of holiday favourites in English, Italian, French and German. The only original song on the album was ‘God Bless Us Everyone’. It was one of the best-selling albums of the year.

His 2013 album ‘Passione’ is a collection of Mediterranean love songs and the album contains duets with Jennifer Lopez and Nelly Furtado. The multi-lingual album has songs in English, Italian, French, and Spanish.

The album ‘Songo’, literally translated as “Dreams” in English, was a super hit. It spawned the hit singles ‘Canto della Terra’ and ‘The Prayer’ which was a duet with Celine Dion. It peaked at No.1 on the pop albums charts in Austria, Sweden and Switzerland.

His classical album ‘Sacred Arias’ is his most commercially successful classical album. The album reached the No.1 slot in the charts of several countries and has sold over five million copies. It is the biggest selling classical album by any solo artist in history.

Andrea Bocelli is the recipient of seven World Music Awards which include four awards for the Best Selling Classical Artist and three for the Best Selling Italian singer.
To date he has won six Classical BRITS Awards including the award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2002.
