Description by Image Entertainment:
Turandot's eternal theme of love triumphant over barbaric cruelty, combined with the opulent beauty of Giacomo Puccini's music, make the composer's final masterpiece one of the best-loved works in the operatic repertoire. But it is the sets and costumes, designed by the noted British artist David Hockney and his collaborator Ian Falconer, which make this "Turandot" particularly special for this production by the San Francisco Opera. Conducted by Donald Runnicles.
