Much like baseball fans, we here at San Francisco Opera count down the days until the opening of the Fall 2012 opera season. But as we were strolling around the City, enjoying the last days of summer, we realized that San Francisco was practically tailor-made for the five fall operas. We found so many connections between our beloved city and the fall season that we had to share them!

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.

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.
