Giacomo Puccini joins Robert Wilson in the new season at the Teatro Real to delight the audience with Turandot, an opera about a Chinese princess who is seemingly incapable of love.

This is the final work by Giacomo Puccini who, after a twenty-year absence, is returning with a new production by one of the most significant stage directors of the 20th and 21st century, Robert Wilson. Nina Stemme, Gregory Kunde and Yolanda Auyanet are some of the stand-out names from the cast, while Nicola Luisotti, one of the biggest Italian names, is the musical director.
Based on an epic twelfth-century Persian poem, Turandot is about a Chinese Princess who is seemingly incapable of love and tries to behead each and every one of her suitors. She finally stops beheading people when she falls in love with one of her suitors, and the cruel princess with pathological and sadistic traits transforms into a vulnerable woman in love.
