#TBT On this day in 1926, Puccini's final opera, Turandot, made its American premiere. Maria Jeritza sang the title role and Giacomo Lauri-Volpi sang Calàf. Giacomo Puccini died in 1924, leaving his opera unfinished. Music editor Giulio Ricordi chose composer Franco Alfano to complete the opera based on Puccini’s sketches. After two attempts, Alfano’s ending was eventually accepted, after being cut by Arturo Toscanini. Maestro Toscanini conducted the premiere at @teatroallascala in 1926, and abstained from conducting Alfano's music. Turandot is on stage tonight, November 16 and returns again this spring on March 21. _________________________ #Turandot #Puccini #Premiere #Timewarp #NoFilterBecauseOld #1920s #FunFacts #DidYouKnow #ThrowbackThursday #TheMoreYouKnow #Opera #History #OTD #OnThisDay #ThisDayInHistory #OperaNerd #MetOpera #TheMet #MetOperaArchives Photo courtesy of the Metropolitan Opera Archives at The Metropolitan Opera
