It’s with great pleasure that we present Valentina Simi. This fall Valentina celebrates her 30th year with San Francisco Opera—30 years! It’s that type of dedication, knowledge and passion that makes working at the Opera such a joy.
Valentina is the Artists Services Coordinator and Assistant to the Music Director Nicola Luisotti. She made her first San Francisco Opera appearance in 1967 as a guest of her mother—a longtime Opera chorister. It seems serendipity was at play when Valentina’s mother introduced her to opera and the War Memorial Opera House. Little did she know what the future would hold including assisting Mo. Luisotti, who happens to be from the same part of Italy as Valentina’s family.
Here’s Valentina’s custom built 2016–17 Season. Enjoy!
