Composer Information

Giacomo Puccini ( 22 December 1858 – 29 November 1924) was an Italian composer whose operas are among the important operas played as standards. Puccini has been called "the greatest composer of Italian opera after Verdi". While his early work was rooted in traditional late-19th-century romantic Italian opera, he successfully developed his work in the realistic verismo style, of which he became one of the leading exponents. Puccini's most renowned works are La bohème (1896), Tosca (1900), and Madama Butterfly (1904), all of which are among the important operas played as standards. [source from Wikipedia]

Work Information

"Nessun dorma" is the aria of the last opera "Turandot" of Puccini, which is sung by the chief actor, Prince Calaf. He tells about the Princess Turandot decreeing that none of her subjects shall sleep that night until the name of the prince is discovered. If they fail, all will be killed. The original meaning of this song is "None shall sleep". The Chinese translation is "Jin Ye Wu Ren Ru Shui" or "Gong Zhu Che Ye Wei Mian".
