It's as Simple as Snap and Post to Win
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.

The idea behind our Snap & Post to Win contest is very simple: if you and your friends or family are having a night out at the opera, we want to see pictures!

We've created a Photo Corner in the Grove Street side lobby of the War Memorial Opera House that features a chic San Francisco Opera logo step & repeat backdrop. Take a minute before the performance or during intermission to snap a photo in front of the backdrop with your smartphone or camera. Then, to be entered to win our contest, upload the photo to Twitter and tag @SFOpera or post the photo to our Facebook page. We will collect all of the images posted throughout the Summer Season and have a random drawing to select one winner on July 16, 2012!

The lucky winner will receive a prize package that includes a $100 gift certificate for Boxing Room Restaurant, one of the hottest new restaurants to open in Hayes Valley this year; 2 orchestra level tickets to a performance of Verdi's Rigoletto in Fall 2012, and 2 complimentary glasses of champagne from Patina at the War Memorial Opera House to enjoy during intermission. Sound like a good night to you? We thought so.

Don't worry if you aren't the most tech-savvy person on the block, we'll walk you through it each step of the way. For more information, instructions on how to post photos on our Facebook page or how to tag @SFOpera on Twitter, and for contest rules, visit And don't forget to find the Photo Corner in the Grove Street side lobby at every dress rehearsal and performance this Summer Season!

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.
