Event Details


The mysterious Princess Turandot requires any man who wishes to propose to herand thus sit on the throne next to her, to solve three riddles. When a nameless prince solves the diabolical riddle, he asks the restive princess a riddle himself: She shall call him his name. Turandot imposes a ban on her people not to sleep until the stranger’s name is found. With “Nessun dorma!” Giacomo Puccini succeeded in producing one of the most popular arias in opera literature. Puccini‘s glistening and mysteriously jagged sounds find their ideal echo in the rugged rocky landscape of the St. Margarethen Quarry. Celine sings the role of Liu.
