Puccini's famous "Nessun Dorma" is an aria that takes place during the final act of the opera Turandot. The prince Calaf, despite having answered the titular character's riddles (and thus avoiding execution), is still spurned by Princess Turandot. Undeterred and completely in love, Calaf offers her a way out: if she can guess his name by dawn, he will submit to execution. If not, she must marry him. Desperate to avoid marriage, Turandot in her cruelty orders no one to sleep ("Nessun Dorma") until someone reveals Calaf's name. If her subjects fail, they will all be killed. Dawn quickly approaches, and Calaf becomes sure of victory, which he expresses joyfully at the end of the aria.
This brass arrangement of Puccini's famous "Nessun Dorma" is sure to move audiences with its lyrical, flowing melodies. Like other arrangements for brass quintet by Bill Miller, each part has a chance to shine. The trombone part features divisi sections that could be covered by additional low brass players. There is no treble clef euphonium part, but doubling Trumpet 2 could prove an interesting choice.
