Opera by Jacques Offenbach. Produced by San Francisco Opera, 1976.
A beautiful street singer, La Périchole, becomes a lady in waiting at court. Although the opera is set in Peru, designer John Lee Beatty gave the production the look of composer Jacques Offenbach's own milieu, Second Empire France under Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie.
