Franco Zeffirelli's breathtaking production of Puccini's last opera is a favourite of the Met repertoire. Conducted by Paolo Carignani, this production features soprano Maria Guleghina as the ruthless Chinese princess of the title, whose hatred of men is so strong that she has all suitors who can't solve her riddles beheaded. Tenor Marco Berti sings Calàf, the unknown prince who eventually wins her love and whose solos include the famous "Nessun dorma."
