FREE Live Simulcast of Romeo and Juliet
Romeo & Juliet
Saturday, September 21, 7:30pm
San Francisco Opera and San Francisco Giants invite you to join us for Opera at the Ballpark this September! Our FREE simulcast of Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet will be transmitted in high definition live from the stage of the War Memorial Opera House to the new 71-foot high x 153-feet wide (2,160 pixel high x 4,672 pixel wide) Mitsubishi Electronic Diamond Vision Board in Oracle Park. The newly installed model is twice the resolution and 50 feet wider and 20 feet higher than the former video-board. It is the third largest video-board in Major League Baseball and the largest movie screen in San Francisco. Performance-quality audio combined with Oracle Park’s upgraded screen creates an enhanced open-air operatic experience for Bay Area audiences.
Bring your friends and family for a front-row seat and enjoy garlic fries and show-stopping arias under the stars.
Full of “dramatic” and “emotional moments” (The Jerusalem Post), this French operatic adaptation of William Shakespeare’s beloved love story will be headlined by two of the most in-demand artists in the world, tenor Bryan Hymel and soprano Nadine Sierra as Romeo and Juliet.
Field seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis; guests must enter through the Marina Gate to access field seating.
