Puccini Festival – Turandot

August 12, 2022 @ 9:00 pm



12 and 20 August

Turandot surrenders to Love!

Puccini’s unfinished opera, the work with which he delves deeply into the human soul, remained unfinished because the Maestro hesitated for so long over how to render the transformation of the Princess of Frost who, from her natural predisposition towards death, finally opens up to life out of love.

This production was greeted with great enthusiasm by the public in 2021 and was directed by Daniele Abbado, who saw Turandot, a masterpiece of the 20th century, as a work of extraordinary modernity.

A symbolic and minimal “contemporary” stage design for an absolutely modern opera in which an important technological approach is evident thanks to the beautiful sets by Angelo Linzalata, innovative light bodies also illuminate the colourful, modern costumes by Giovanna Buzzi.

The Puccini Festival is the most important opera festivals in Italy and the only one in the world dedicated to Puccini. It takes place in the summer, in the months of July and August, in the places that were inspirational for the Maestro. The Festival offers the opportunity to listen to great stars of world opera interpreting Puccini’s masterpieces, staged in a large open-air theatre on the shores of Lake Massaciuccoli, right in front of the Puccini House Museum.
