Finally, the San Francisco arts world we once knew seems to be coming back to life. 

This month the city welcomes the return of October favorites Fleet Week, Outside Lands, Litquake, the Trolley Dances performed on the Muni Metro lines, North Beach’s Italian Heritage Parade, and Sunday Streets, a citywide event aptly named Phoenix Rising Day.

The opera season is up and running, this month with a performance of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, and the symphony also presents several programs featuring the composer as well as Mendelssohn, Mozart, and others. 

Head to the Chase Center for the Eagles and James Taylor with Jackson Browne, to SFJazz for Branford Marsalis, or to the Presidio Theatre for the Del Sol Quartet performing Angel Island: Oratorio for Voices and Strings, based on poems carved in the walls by detained Chinese immigrants.
