Turandot: Luciano Berio Ending
Oct 15, 2005
The finale to Act III of Puccini’s Turandot completed by Luciano Berio has been recorded with Eva Urbanova as Truandot and conducted by Riccardo Chailly on a CD called Puccini Discoveries. It is only 23 minutes long but is a very interesting contrast to the Alfano version. This is a much more quiet and contemplative ending, not as exciting as Alfano, but probably more in character with the rest of the opera.
