Turandot, the icy Princess of China, is known for her riddle contest; any prince seeking to marry her must first answer her three riddles. If they fail, they are beheaded. When the brave Prince Calàf answers all her riddles correctly, he presents her with a counter-challenge; if she can discover his name by dawn, he will forfeit his life. As dawn approaches, will Princess Turandot discover his name or give in to her growing feelings for him?
