Backstage at San Francisco Opera > September 2012 > Ready for your close-up?
Ready for your close-up?
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!

The schnazzy San Francisco Opera Photo Corner is located on the Grove Street lobby of the Opera House, and it features a red carpet-worthy San Francisco Opera 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 Fall Season and have two random drawings. And you know that means?

Two fall contests means twice the fun! We’ll draw once for all entries from September 7–October 20, 2012 and again for all entries from October 21–December 2, 2012.

Our Fantastic Prize Package Includes:

• 2 tickets to a San Francisco Opera mainstage performance
• 2 complimentary glasses of champagne at intermission
• A $100 gift certificate to Maestro Restaurant

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

Still not sure if you want to do it? Check out these photos of some of our wonderful patrons who entered our summer ‘Snap and Post to Win’ contest. We'll see you at the Photo Corner!

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.
