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 September 9 through September 30 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 $11 registration fee).

Here's what past participants had to say about Overture:

“It was so much fun that after the 4 sessions were over, we were ‘lost’ on what to do on Monday nights.”

“This was a terrific experience. It was filled with surprises and new notions of opera as a unique art form.”

"I've been a season ticket holder for many years. The operas I saw subsequent to class were MUCH enriched. I can't wait to see Tosca next week even though I have seen it at SF opera before!"

"Knowing the work that goes behind the scenes only increased the magic."

“Would go again in a heartbeat...”
