Our production of Rigoletto
was created back in 1997 by Michael Yeargan with costumes designed by Constance Hoffman. The costumes along with the sets are rich with color and drama, yet they also allude to the dark and sinister underbelly of the court.

There was a palpable energy in the War Memorial Opera House air in the months leading up to The Magic Flute
premiere on June 13. None of us could wait to see this new production full of bold, colorful scenery and costumes by internationally acclaimed artist Jun Kaneko. When Jun and his wife Ree visited San Francisco Opera's Props department and Costume Shop in March, it was the first time they saw Jun's sketches come to life.

It all started innocently enough. Nine year-old Natalie Beier, who always loved art and fashion, needed to do research on costume design for an upcoming school production of Anne of Green Gables. For her research, she came to the opera with her family, went to the library, and ultimately got a very special glimpse into San Francisco Opera's Costume Shop. And for the budding costume designer, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity arose: to be a supernumerary or "super" chick in this summer's production of The Magic Flute
