Turandot was unfinished at the time of Puccini’s death in 1924, and was completed by Franco Alfano (8 March 1875 – 27 October 1954, the Italian composer and pianist) in 1926. The first performance was held at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan on 25 April 1926 and conducted by Arturo Toscanini. This performance included only Puccini’s music and not Alfano’s additions. The first performance of the opera as completed by Alfano was the following night, 26 April, although it is disputed whether this was conducted by Toscanini again or by Ettore Panizza
Released April 25, 1926. 10. Nessun dorma Lyrics. Puccini’s last and grandest opera was adapted from Carlo Gozzi’s similarly titled 18th-century play, though its story can be traced to a 12th-century Persian epic poem by Nizami. Set in ancient China, it concerns an exiled prince who is lovestruck by the sight of the emperor’s daughter and vows to marry her, despite her policy of executing all suitors who fail to answer three riddles she poses. The composer was given a music box by Italian diplomat Baron Fassini Camossi that played Chinese melodies, and used some of the musical material in the opera. The opera was finished by Franco Alfano two years later, though other composers' endings to the opera have been used in performance. The work premiered in Milan in 1926, conducted by Arturo Toscanini.
