Puccini, Giacomo (biography)

Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini (December 22, 1858 - November 29, 1924) is regarded as one of the great operatic composers of the late 19th and early 20th century. His operas include including Madame Butterfly and La Boheme.
"Tu che di gel sei cinta" (You who are enclosed by ice) is a soprano aria from act 3, scene 1, of Puccini's 1926 opera Turandot. The words were actually written by Puccini himself. Waiting for librettists Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni to deliver the next part of the libretto, he wrote the words, and when they read them they decided that they could not do better. It is sung by Liù under torture, prior to her suicide.
