SFOpera - San Francisco Opera at AT&T Park

San Francisco Opera at AT&T Park

Free Live Simulcast of Carmen, Saturday, July 2, at 7:30pm

San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Giants invite you to Opera at the Ballpark, presented by Taube Philanthropies.

This free performance of Bizet’s Carmen will be simulcast live from the War Memorial Opera House. Pre-show and intermission will be hosted by KDFC's Dianne Nicolini and Hoyt Smith. Beach Blanket Babylon's Tammy Nelson will lead the crowd in a rousing rendition of "Take Me Out to the Opera," which will be captured by Smule to feature in their app.

Join 30,000 fellow attendees for an unforgettable evening of opera – and garlic fries – under the stars. Choose between sitting on the field or in the stands!

*Please note: This production contains violence, nudity and sexual situations. Parental discretion advised.

Long before there was sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll, there was Carmen. A seductive and dangerous gypsy, Carmen captures the heart of the soldier Don José, whose all-consuming jealousy may be her ruin.  You've heard the opera’s iconic “Habanera” aria sung by artists as varied as Beyoncé, Maria Callas, and the Muppets.
