#LAO30Images Iconic Productions Day 2: Tristan und Isolde

David Hockney’s 1987 Tristan und Isolde came out of a newly formed company looking to innovate and connect with the Los Angeles community. It was an LA affair with bold, wildly colored sets (designed in Hockney’s Hollywood Hills studio), a west coast born and bred cast, including stunning soprano, Jeannine Altmeyer, and Zubin Mehta vibrantly conducting the LA Philharmonic in the pit.
