The lead singer, Audrey Stottler, performs her signature role as
Princess Turandot, a role she has performed at the Forbidden City
Imperial Palace in Beijing. Puccini did research authentic
Chinese melodies for his masterpiece opera, known for Nessun Dorma, one
of Opera's most famous tenor arias. But expect stereoptypical
portrayals of Chinese characters such as the court administrators named
“Ping”, “Pang” and “Pong.”
