Being one of those crazy European languages, the pronunciation of the title is, like Puccini's opera itself, unfinished (the final "t" is silent).

Just like Tom's opinion of the game, reception for the opera has been lukewarm by many since some other composers gave their mind to writing an ending.

While it's true that another composer finished the opera after Puccini's death and that academic criticism has been mixed, it's nonetheless one of the most popular operas in the repertoire (in the top 20 regularly performed), in no small part due to the aria Nessun Dorma.

Frankly, I tend to consider Turandot an unfinished opera.

I don't like Alfano's that much, it strives a bit with Puccini's style.
