Relayed from Covent Garden
Scene : A square by the walls and gates of Pckin.
PUCCINI'S last opera was completed all but the final duet, just before his death in 1924. It is based upon the fairy tale of the Princess who propounded three riddles to those who wooed her and had beheaded the suitors who failed to guess the answers. In Act I, the Prince of Persia, having failed, is about to be executed. Kalaf, an unknown prince, protests against such wanton cruelty, but catching sight of the Princess Turandot, falls madly in love with her.
