Encore broadcast: March 26 2023 at 2pm (BST)


In the court of Princess Turandot, suitors who fail to solve her riddles are brutally killed. But when a mysterious Prince answers correctly, suddenly he holds all the power – and a glorious secret. When life hangs in the balance, can love conquer all?


Puccini’s score is rich in musical marvels (featuring ‘Nessun dorma’), while Andrei Serban’s production draws on Chinese theatrical tradition to evoke a colourful fantasy tableau of ancient Peking. Antonio Pappano and Paul Wynne Griffiths conduct, with Anna Pirozzi in the title role and Yonghoon Lee and Russell Thomas sharing the role of Calaf.
