Princess Turandot (German: Prinzessin Turandot) is a 1934 German comedy film directed by Gerhard Lamprecht and starring Käthe von Nagy and Willy Fritsch.[1] A separate French-language version, Turandot, Princess of China, was also released.

The script, by Thea von Harbou,[2] includes elements of Puccini's opera Turandot and Friedrich Schiller's adaptation of Carlo Gozzi's 1762 play Turandot. It was shot at the Babelsberg Studios in Berlin. The film sets were designed by the art directors Robert Herlth and Walter Röhrig. The music was by Franz Doelle with song lyrics by Bruno Balz and C. Amberg (including the opening Turandot, bezaubernde Turandot - 'enchanting Turandot'),[3] and the sound engineer was Dr. Fritz Seidel.

  2. ^ A number of websites mistakenly credit the script to F. P. (Felix Paul) Greve, later known in Canada as Frederick Philip Grove, who published a German translation of One Thousand and One Nights in 1909. (Source: Zur Kulturgeschichte der Märchen 17. Mai 2015, p. 7n.) These sources are apparently confusing '1001 Nights' with the similarly-titled collection Les Mille et un jours ('1001 Days') (1710–1712) by François Pétis de la Croix, from which the story of Turandot is taken.
