San Francisco Opera’s Department of Diversity, Equity and Community (DEC) will present virtual, interactive events for families in March: First Act Workshop: Musical Adventures on March 6 and two unique Spring in Opera Land events with Bearitone, the Opera Bear puppet, on March 27 and 30. DEC has launched its first sliding-scale pricing structure for event tickets to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in its family programming. No families will be turned away due to lack of funds.
