Join Maestro Jahja Ling, Music Director of San Diego Symphony and Nicolas Reveles, the Geisel Director of Education and Outreach for San Diego Opera in a discussion of the authentic Chinese folk tunes that composer Giacomo Puccini wove into the fabric of his final opera, Turandot.  A classic East meets West story will be explored as we discover how an Italian composer used his political connections to find original Chinese music.
