The icy Chinese princess , Turandot, with music by Giacomo Puccini, immerses herself into our digital world of technology. This is the basic concept of Turandot.com, a new production of Festival delle Nazioni realized with local music schools. The main goal is to reflect on the online reality, its menaces and dangers which are now so common among the youth. At the same time there is the need of promoting a creative and active use of the web as opposed to the acritic and passive one which only leads to addiction. «In Turandot.com lyric and electronic music, tradition and future coexist – explained composer Raffaele Sargenti from Perugia, author of libretto and music. I had fun imagining an audience made of the entire web community: curious guys, fans of all different music genres or gamers totally unaware of the opera. I tried to favour the mix of everything without prejudices».
