Giacomo Puccini


Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Franco Zeffirelli’s celebrated
production of Turandot, which stars Christine Goerke in the title role of the icy Chinese
princess who has renounced all men. Roberto Aronica sings Calàf, the suitor who risks his
head for her hand and sings the famed aria “Nessun dorma.” Eleonora Buratto is the slave
girl Liù, and James Morris is Calàf’s long-lost father, Timur.
