This Turandot marked the first time the opera was performed in Milan with the finale devised by Luciano Berio, replacing Alfano’s traditional ending. Berio himself worked closely on this production with both the stage director Nikolaus Lehnhoff and La Scala’s music director, Riccardo Chailly. Nina Stemme takes the title role with her “powerful, luxuriant voice” and “blazing high notes” (New York Times).

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.
