The only reason this is a controversy at all is people think “It must be -doh because, in French, you don’t pronounce the t”

The opera, however, is in Italian in which you do say the final t.

Plus it’s based on a character named “Turandotte.”

It’s not French.  It has no connection to French.  Why are we afraid to say the final t?
