The history of Turandot is very interesting. The name Turandot is derived from a Persian name Turandokht because the play is originally Persian and is adapted by Italian. Turan is a place in Persia and Dokht is derived from the Persian word Dokhtar which means daughter. So the literal meaning of Turandokht or Turandot is "daughter of Turan". The story of Turandot was taken from a Persian book Hezar O-Yek Shab. The English name of the book is The Book of One Thousand and One Days. Even the name of the opera inflicts a very interesting mark which is enough to prompt you to watch it.

The opera consist of three acts and it was first of all presented by Giacomo Puccini. Unfortunately, the play could not be finished for presentation till Puccini's death and then it was Franco Alfano who finished the play. It was in 1926 that the play was first of all conducted in Milan at Teatro Alla Scala by Arturo Toscanini. But the music in the play was all by Puccini. The Turandot with the music of Alfano was later conducted by Ettore Panizza. Turandot spread to Rome, Buenos Aires, Dresden, Venice, Vienna, Berlin, New York, Brussels, Naples, Parma, Turin, London, San Francisco, Bologna, Paris and Moscow soon after its release in Milan.
The story of Turandot is about a cruel princess, Turandot, who avenges her grandmother's murder by a foreign prince by asking three difficult riddles form anyone who wants to marry the princess and then orders for beheading of that person if he fails to answer correctly. Prince of Tartary proves to be the prince who answered all the three riddles correctly. At that the princess is furious and begs her father not to let her at the mercy of the prince but the emperor sticks to the oath and then the Prince of Tartary teaches the Turandot the meaning of true love, which she learns but after much wrath and beheadings. The play has a happy ending which can leave the audience loving it. The story is basically about teaching love to a cruel princess and about sincerity and faith.
