Turandot appears and, with a contemptuous gesture, bids the execution proceed.

If guilt you have, it can be only this: That you have given the world such peerless beauty As draws all men to her. We used lighting right from the start, keeping in mind how the costumes should look, since Chinese costumes are elaborate. Gozzi, although he also uses both elements of drama and comedy, puts them side by side as independent parts; Schiller combines them and makes them the result of each other. Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor. His real genius, however, was to combine that music with stories about ordinary people. Before I had the ill-luck to have to run away from Venice, and before I had the unmerited good fortune to be appointed your Majesty's Prime Minister, I had never heard anything about China, except that you had to be careful not to smash it; and Heaven knows it kind of knocks me on the head that in this part of the world there should be such obsolete customs and such obsolete oaths and such obsolete males and females as there are here in your country, Heaven knows.

Turandot book

Turandot enters and tells the story of her ancestor Princess Lou-Ling, brutally slain by a conquering prince; in revenge Turandot has turned against all men, determining that none shall ever possess her.

O cruel daughter, born To be a curse to me! Unnerved, Turandot continues: what flickers red and warm like a flame, yet is not fire? Turandot is scored for a large orchestra including 13 tuned Chinese gongs — a full chromatic scale!
