You might recall that back in May we announced our first ever ‘Snap and Post to Win’ contest. The concept was (and is) simple: If you’re out being your fabulous self, attending an opera performance, we want to see you at our Photo Corner! If you share your photo with us, you’ll be entered in drawings for two fabulous prizes!

San Francisco Opening Night is always a dazzling affair, and this year’s Opera Ball – in honor of the 90th season – will be no exception. The ball itself will be sumptuous, thanks to the magic of Event Designer Robert Fountain, who has orchestrated a beautiful tented pavilion fit for royalty. Guests will also feast on an Italian meal that would make the Duke of Mantua proud - impeccably prepared by McCall Associates. And of course, we look forward to the sure-to-be-stunning performance of Verdi’s brilliant and dramatic Rigoletto, conducted by the most passionate Italian of them all, Maestro Nicola Luisotti. Guests have come to expect delightful surprises at Opera Ball, and we will not disappoint! It will truly be a night of splendor, from the Rigoletto costumes onstage to the gorgeous gowns and debonair tuxedos worn by Opera Ball patrons in the Opera House.

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.
