Turandot is Puccini’s last opera. He died after finishing the first scene of the last act, leaving the final scene to be completed by another hand. But there is enough vintage Puccini in Turandot to keep audiences thrilled, ever since opening night in 1926. Puccini’s music for this cruel and often violent Chinese fairy tale still keeps audiences pinned to their seats after all these years.
