Giacomo Puccini


Introduction at 6.50 pm

A cry echoes through the millennia. It now resounds in Turandot's soul. A woman was once violated, now Princess Turandot has sworn revenge: no man shall ever possess her. Whoever courts her must die unless he solves three riddles. Many princes have tried, all are dead. Then comes a nameless man on the run from war and death and dares to try ... The fairy-tale quality of the opera here becomes the garb of a story of desire, power and powerlessness. The female desire against male desire, paternal power against that of the daughters, self-sacrificing love against self-determined love. In the end, after so much bloodshed, will love still be possible? The opera was not completed, the question not answered - Puccini dies in 1924 and his era ends.
