San Francisco Opera hosts a Community Open House at the War Memorial Opera House on Saturday, November 9, from 10:30am to 2:30pm. The Open House is FREE to the public and will feature events and activities for all ages.

Activities during the morning session will be geared mainly toward families. The afternoon session (beginning at 12:00pm) will provide more opportunities for adult patrons.

Register for a chance to win tickets to The Barber of Seville or The Barber of Seville for Families!

There are two ways to register:

Use the offer code OPERAFAN to be a friend to the Opera—meaning you’ll forward this webpage link to three people who have never experienced opera or the War Memorial Opera House. By registering as a friend, you'll gain early entry for either the morning or afternoon entry.

Or, simply register without a code.

For either registration, please be sure to select an entry time.
