Turandot was the final work of Puccini, who died before it was completed, and is a love story set in China. Within the walls of the great violet city of Peking, an announcement is made that Princess Turandot will marry only a suitor of royal blood who will answer three riddles set by her. Suitors who fail to answer the riddles will be executed. An unknown prince who is in love with the princess appears from the crowd and solves the riddles, but Turandot is reluctant to marry him. The prince offers her a way out: if she can learn his name before dawn, then at daybreak he will die.
