Originally a knight set on a chivalric course between love and duty, Handel's Orlando becomes a hospitalized RAF pilot with PTSD in this WWII era update that comes to the San Francisco Opera via the Scottish Opera.

San Francisco Opera - Rusalka

Until June 28, 2019

From the shallows, Rusalka the Water Nymph pines for the love of a human Prince in Dvorak's beguiling interpretation of the classic fairytale. Lyrical and achingly beautiful, this new to San Francisco production immerses you into a supernatural world beneath the depths where mermaids, immortals and nefarious Sea-Witches dwell.

San Francisco Opera - Romeo and Juliet Poster

San Francisco Opera - Romeo and Juliet

September 6 - October 1, 2019

If you thought your family was dysfunctional, try being literature's two most famous lovers. Whilst Romeo Capulet and Juliet Montague are concerned with being star-crossed, their rival clans will stop at nothing to destroy the other. When it becomes clear the match will not be tolerated, the pair hatches a scheme to escape the embittered streets of Verona; only the outcome depends on some dangerous trickery that might just see their fates entwined forever, and not in the marriage bed as previously planned.

San Francisco Opera - Billy Budd Poster

San Francisco Opera - Billy Budd

September 7 - 22, 2019

A high seas saga like no other, Benjamin Britten's Billy Budd sails into San Francisco in fall 2019 in this new to town production from legendary director Michael Grandage. With a libretto by E.M Forster and Eric Crozier adapted from Herman Melville's 1923 novella, we follow the titular Billy as he jauntily enters service on the English Navy's H.M.S Indomitable. Once aboard, the naive young sailor soon comes up against injustices even his charming outlook can't dodge. An emotionally charged and richly textured work marked as Britten's finest, discover a story of innocence lost and envy triumphant that will stick with you long after the ship makes port.
