Director Franco Zeffirelli’s breathtaking production of Giacomo Puccini’s last opera is a favorite of the Met repertoire. Maria Guleghina plays the ruthless titular Chinese princess, whose hatred of men is so strong that she has all suitors who can’t solve her riddles beheaded. Marcello Giordani sings Calàf, the unknown prince who eventually wins her love and whose arias include the famous “Nessun dorma.” Andris Nelsons conducts. Recorded on November 7, 2009.
