In 2010, Giordani created the Marcello Giordani Foundation to help young opera singers at the beginning of their career.
The first annual Marcello Giordani Vocal Competition was held in Sicily in 2011.
Though Puccini's first interest in the subject was based on his reading of Friedrich Schiller's 1801 adaptation of the play, his work is most nearly based on the earlier text Turandot by Carlo Gozzi.
The original story is based on one of the seven stories in the epic Haft Peykar (The Seven Beauties), work of 12th-century Persian poet Nizami.
His debut at La Scala came two years later when he sang Rodolfo in La bohème.
He went on to sing throughout Italy and Europe, and in 1988, he made his American debut singing Nadir in Les pêcheurs de perles with Portland Opera, a company with which he frequently appeared early in his career.
The opera's version of the story is set in China and involves Prince Calaf, who falls in love with the cold Princess Turandot.
The name of the opera is based on Turan-Dokht (daughter of Turan), which is a common name used in Persian poetry for Central Asian princesses.Engagements with several other American opera companies followed, including San Francisco Opera, Seattle Opera, Los Angeles Opera and the Opera Company of Philadelphia.Giordani made his Metropolitan Opera debut in 1993 as Nemorino in a Parks performance of L'elisir d'amore opposite Maria Spacagna as Adina.Giordani met his wife, Wilma, when he was singing in Lucerne in 1988. The couple and their two sons live in New York and Sicily.Gifted with remarkable musical skill, stage presence, and unlimited humanity.
