Description
If you've never heard Franco Corelli, this is your chance to experience one of the greatest tenors of all time—in his artistic and technical prime—sing "Nessun dorma." In this 1958 Radiotelevisione Italiana telecast, he plays Calaf, seeking the hand of the dread princess Turandot (a powerful, credible Lucille Udovich). Optional English, French, and German subtitles.

"The Liu of Renata Mattioli is superb, the remainder of the cast very good.... There are intriguing kabuki effects in this production directed by Mario Lanfranchi. The performance is highly entertaining.... The brief Tosca excerpt is from a Bell Telephone Hour telecast of 1962.... Lovers of Turandot and Corelli won't want to miss this one."—Classical CD Review

"Turandot is based on an ancient fable, originating in Persia and set in China. It tells of a princess so desirable that men came by the hundreds, from all over the world, and queued up to vie for her love. There was a catch, of course. To have any shot at all with Turandot, a suitor first had to answer three vexing riddles—and anyone who failed wound up with his head on a stake, as a warning to all the suitors still standing in line."—NPR's World of Opera
