Three riddles, to which a nameless prince finds the right answers: hope, blood and Turandot. And three characters who reveal the meaning of Puccini’s melodrama: Calaf, Liù and Turandot. The visually fascinating sets and spectacular costumes of Aleu’s production, in which light plays a key role, further accentuate the many ground-breaking aspects of this opera of the late Verismo school.
