In this much-anticipated complete opera recording from Andrea Bocelli, the tenor assembles a fine cast to explore Puccini’s last opera, including American soprano Jennifer Wilson as Turandot. Taking the lead role of Calaf – the unknown prince – Bocelli’s powerful tenor tells a compelling story of riddles answered, triumph secured, honor displayed, and love deeply felt.

“Bocelli’s great natural gift is a powerful tenor of very distinctive timbre, not conventionally rounded in a Pavarotti-like way but above all virile with a baritonal tinge.” - Edward Greenfield

History

Turandot

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1926.

Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi.

Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere.
