One of the most synonymous works in the operatic canon, Rossini's delightfully farcical The Barber of Seville returns to San Francisco in 2020, in Emilio Sagi's wildly popular Spanish inspired production. Starring the mischievous Count Almavira and his wily servant Figaro, prepare to be highly amused by their antics as they take on the adventure of wooing the witty beauty Rosina - right out from under the nose of Dr Bartolo. With devious disguises, meddlesome mishaps, the fate of the heart of this young girl is one thrilling and hilarious ride!

In Spring 2021 San Francisco Opera presents a new production for the company, with a moving performance of Alexander Von Zemlinsky's operatic adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Birthday of the Infanta. An expressive masterpiece which was initially suppressed by the German regime in the years leading up to WWII, De Zwerg is a haunting tale of an outsider's fateful adoration of a princess.

If you like your opera epic and soul-stirring then San Francisco Opera's resplendent sonic celebration of Verdi and Wagner is just the ticket. For three special performances only, Armenian operatic soprano Lianna Haroutounian and Swedish dramatic soprano Irene Theorin (two of the foremost interpreters of the Italian and German repertoire in the world) are set to take to the War Memorial Opera House stage to bring the works of the giants of 19th-century opera to vivid life once more.

The War Memorial Opera House was built and opened in 1932, providing a home for the San Francisco Ballet from its earliest days and was at the time, the largest and most technologically advanced in the United States. The venue underwent a huge renovation following the cataclysmic 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and now boasts a modern yet luxurious interior, with disability access and various bars and booths for patrons to use during intermissions, making it both a local and international landmark in the world of theater.
