In Peking, a cruel princess renowned for her beauty (Iréne Theorin) submits her suitors to three riddles, and the prince who can solve them will obtain her hand and the throne. But alas! So far, all have failed and suffered the relentless sentence: death. Will the young Calaf (Brian Jagde) succeed? Puccini's glorious score, left unfinished in 1924 when the composer died, is rich in modernity and melodic inspiration, as illustrated by the famous aria “Nessun dorma”. Singular American director & artist Robert Wilson’s refined production, crossed with touches of commedia dell'arte, offers striking and hypnotic images.
