Description

San Francisco’s acclaimed Merola Opera Program, one of the most prestigious and selective opera training programs in the world, offers audiences a look at the opera stars of tomorrow. The program’s 61st season continues with a lively, fully-staged production of "The Rake’s Progress." Based loosely on the eponymous eight paintings and engravings by William Hogarth (1733-1735), Stravinsky’s dramatic opera follows the decline and fall of a profligate heir who makes a devil’s bargain with Nick Shadow, abandoning life in the country and his tender fiancée for the wicked temptations of London.

Discount available for purchase of three San Francisco-based Summer Festival productions (deadline June 18, 2018). Also discount for groups of 10 or more. $15 student tickets available in limited quantity in advance at San Francisco Opera Box Office.
