San Francisco Chronicle Presents Opera in the Park

Sunday, September 8, 2019

Ring in the new season with Opera in the Park, a free outdoor concert dedicated to celebrating community and artistry at San Francisco Opera.

Opera in the Park is the perfect opportunity to get a sneak peek at the performers who will be headlining our fall shows, including Romeo and Juliet and Billy Budd. The concert is a mix of operatic favorites, pop classics, and songs from new and upcoming productions.

Bring your picnic blanket and enjoy the majesty of opera in the great outdoors at Robin Williams Meadow in Golden Gate Park.
