The opera, set in Beijing, tells the story of the beautiful Turandot, daughter of the emperor and facing Calaf, the only one of his suitors who avoided death by deciphering the three enigmas, imposed as a condition to marry the cruel princess. With echoes of atonality, is the most avant-garde work of Puccini, and has fragments that have surpassed the line of the opera to reach the general public as “Nessun dorma”, “In questa reggia” or “Signore, ascolta”.
Turandot enjoyed great acceptance since its premiere in April 1926 at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, and in June of the same year, it was presented at the Teatro Colón. It was represented 15 times more in the seasons of 1929, 1932, 1939, 1940, 1949, 1958, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1969, 1977, 1993, 1994, and 2006. For the seventeenth time, returns to the stage of the Argentine Colosseum.
