Opera novices and aficionados alike had a ball at our Overture: Opera Workshops for Adults this past spring! In an intimate setting, experts like Director of Music Administration Kip Cranna and Tosca Director Jose Maria Condemi led the participants in interactive exercises that made the process of creating opera come to life.

We all do it. You're out with friends, having dinner or going to a show or having a drink after work. What are the chances that someone in the group will pull out a smartphone and snap a picture to put on Facebook or Twitter? We like to show our friends and family what we are doing and we like to have something to help us remember a fun evening out. If this sounds like something you've done (or even if you haven't...yet) then our Snap & Post to Win contest is going to be the easiest drawing you've ever entered! Want the chance to win a fantastic night out—dinner and a show at San Francisco Opera? Read on.

Overture Workshops are very informative, and I’m not just speaking as a frequent SFO supernumerary and opera lover. I attended the Overture: Opera Workshops for Adults four-session series in fall 2011. These workshops offer a lot of information in a very short time, including some worthwhile participation.

Introduction

Backstage at San Francisco Opera is a fascinating, fast-moving, mysterious and sacred space for the Company’s singers, musicians, dancers, technicians and production crews. Musical and staging rehearsals are on-going, scenery is loaded in and taken out, lighting cues are set, costumes and wigs are moved around and everything is made ready to receive the audience. From the principal singers, chorus and orchestra musicians to the creative teams for each opera, in addition to the many talented folks who don’t take a bow on stage, this blog offers unique insight, both thought-provoking and light-hearted, into the life backstage at San Francisco Opera.
