The Opera is on: San Francisco Opera launches fall livestreaming program

Fall gives us many things to look forward to — shorter days, long shadows, falling (brown) leaves, and Thanksgiving, to name a few. Fall is also opera season and opera fans are surely missing the pageantry that is opera — but not to worry, our beloved San Francisco Opera has launched a repertoire of full-length operas available online through November. Filmed in high-definition at the War Memorial Opera House, each of the performances will be available on demand for 24 hours following the first streaming date.

On the program are two operas by Giuseppe Verdi: Un Ballo in Maschera (A Masked Ball) and Rigoletto; others are Boris Godunov by Modest Mussorgsky, and L’Elisir d’Amore (The Elixir of Love) by Gaetano Donizetti. See our calendar on page 10 for further information and additional November events.
