Opera is ON to Feature Archival San Francisco Opera Performances for ferry riders while “Lock Down” is still in place.
In a bold imaginative move, San Francisco Opera recently announced that it will stream performances from its archives.
Each streamed opera will be presented on Saturdays at 10 am Pacific time at sfopera.com and remain available until midnight the following day.
Bring your streaming device on the ferry and enjoy a once in a lifetime experience.
Streaming of past performances is the newest addition to Opera is ON, the Company’s online initiative to connect with the community and provide comfort, beauty and joy during the COVID-19 crisis.
Launched on April 1, Opera is ON offers a series of “Odes to Joy” by San Francisco Opera artists; Spotify playlists curated by Company leadership and staff; blog articles from contributors throughout the Company; and fun, interactive content. Opera is ON content will continue to be added on an ongoing basis.
Upcoming streaming titles will include Vincenzo Belllini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and the Montagues) with Joyce DiDonato and Nicole Cabell, the 2012 Company premiere of Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’s Moby-Dick and Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia from 2011 starring Renée Fleming and Michael Fabiano.
Since the founding of its media program in 2006, San Francisco Opera has captured many of its performances in high definition using the Koret/Taube Media Suite. Current and 2020–21 San Francisco Opera subscribers and members (donors of $75 and up) will retain access to the streamed titles after their window of public access.
