Opera awakens all the senses with super-human singing, spectacular visuals, dramatic character portrayals, and the thrill of an orchestra all on one stage. These interactive workshops won’t just deepen your appreciation of the art form; they will take you through the journey of creating an opera. From words to music, sets and costumes to staging, newcomers and seasoned opera-goers alike will learn the process from the ground up and experience San Francisco Opera behind-the-scenes.
Join us for 4 consecutive Monday evening sessions beginning June 3 through June 24 from 7-9pm. All sessions are held in the Chorus Room at the War Memorial Opera House.
Cost: $80 for the 4-class package (plus a $10 registration fee).
