Prinzessin Turandot

Princess Turandot

# roses will bloom,

but nobody can be as lovely

# as you are, Princess

# the sun and the moon

and the silvery gleam of the stars

# they pale before you, Princess

# you are so far away,

and still I'd love to woo you

# I'd love to die for you,

with a thousand joys

# Turandot, adorable Turandot

# when you turn around,

perfumes of jasmin waft by

# Turandot, adorable Turandot

# just your smile

makes your mouth glow like a ruby

# when your little foot passes me by

# I am just a beggar standing destitute on the roadside

# oh Turandot, adorable Turandot

# you're as beautiful and brilliant

as the dawn

adorable Princess Turandot

I can't stand it anymore!

the whole world seems to revolve around the Miss, my daughter

and her group of fools who let themselves be beheaded because of her

this girl will be the death of me!

get moving, ladies

you've started packing only now?

when do you intend to get finished?

why is everybody in this house

bent on driving me crazy!

isn't it enough already

that my own daughter ruins my nerves!

do I even have to get annoyed with you too?

where's my husband?

I'm speechless

I beg of you, do stay that way

no way, my dear!

out with you

I have to talk to you

how much do you need?

I'm going to the seaside for four weeks

then for four weeks to the mountains

to recover from the seaside

take your time, my rosebud

go to the mountains for eight weeks

for eight weeks to the seaside

and another eight weeks to the country

pamper yourself, relax

you need it

but why do I need it?

who has ruined my nerves?

your daughter Turandot!

don't say that, the dear child...

the dear child!

she's a charming child

who has her suitors beheaded

a real angel!

- your image!

- why my image? did I had you beheaded?

or did I marry you?

- you married me

- you see

but your daughter Turandot has her suitors beheaded

this is the result of the up-bringing you gave her

but I haven't given her any up-bringing

but that's exactly what I meant!

but why haven't you given her any up-bringing

because you're besotted with the girl

because you let the girl dance on your nose

it's downright outrageous

the way she has you around her little finger

your daughter makes you the laughing stock

of the whole world

don't interrupt me all the time

I'm fed up with that inconsiderate behaviour

but I'm telling you this, my dear

when I'm back in eight weeks

from my rest cure

and if Turandot isn't married by then yet

you! then!

Holy Confucius!

and you're advising me to get married

of course you should get married

as soon as possible,

so that I can have peace at last

what do you think you're doing anyway?

you can't exterminate all young men

just because they're in love with you

don't interrupt me

I'm fed up with this inconsiderate behaviour

but little daddy, I...

I'm not your little daddy!

- why not?

- why why

well... of course I'm your daddy

and that's why you shall get married!

- I won't

- you shall

- I won't

- you shall

am I master in this house

or am I not?

you aren't, little daddy

I'll show you that I'm master in the house

you ill-bred child

you'll marry the one

who can solve your riddles

I don't care if he's a prince

or some vagabond off the streets

whither did you come from?

from the world

where will you be going?

to the Emperor

to the Emperor?

just like that?

you must be a megalomaniac, young man

man, how dare you!

talk politely with us!

otherwise we'll complain about you

to the Emperor

who are you anyway?

who am I?

I'm Willibald

Calaf's servant
