“Immediately after a powerful version of Don’t Stop Me Now, totally surprising and for the first time ever in the history of the band, Lambert starts singing Nessun Dorma, the famous aria from Puccini’s Turandot, with Brian accompanying him playing the orchestral theme on the guitar. An unexpected homage to the musical tradition of our country, perfectly successful and definitely appreciated by the public.” – SPETTAKOLO!
“Nessun Dorma by Puccini from Bologna, Italy.
During soundcheck, I started singing this song, which I had learned many many years ago as a teenager when I trained in Opera for a brief time.
We decided to put a piece of it into our set whilst in the ‘Opera’ house visual.
I have always loved this melody. It coveys such triumph.”
