‘Inspiration is an awakening, a quickening of all man’s faculties, and it is manifested in all high artistic achievements.’
Giacomo Puccini (Turandot, Manon Lescaut, Madama Butterfly)

Puccini’s final opera of an epic fairy tale is re-adapted by Franco Zeffirilli as the Metropolitan stage is transformed into a mythical-ancient Chinese setting, where Nina Stemme stars as the proud princess whose riddles and word-play dooms every suitor who seeks her hand.

With several genuine Chinese themes integrated with an essentially Italian score and Puccini’s lyrical melodies, this is an opera which sets itself for a mighty encounter of two cultures, where the clash of the sexes is drawn in high relief.
