I’d go if I could, but I’ll be sitting in a dark pit. But you? You can attend Pearl Fishers the week before (or the week after) and go to the San Francisco event on September 15. And yes, you can get fries with that.
San Francisco Opera partners with the San Francisco Giants and Webcor Builders once again to bring grand opera to AT&T Park on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 8 p.m. This free live simulcast of Verdi’s Rigoletto is led by San Francisco Opera Music Director Nicola Luisotti, and features an all-star cast including Serbian baritone Željko Lu?i? in the title role, Polish soprano Aleksandra Kurzak as Gilda and Sardinian tenor Francesco Demuro as the lecherous Duke of Mantua. Register now for early entry and to assure best seating at sfopera.com/simulcast.
Through state-of-the-art technology, the simulcast will be transmitted in 1920×1080 high definition (HD) to AT&T Park’s 103-feet wide Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision scoreboard—one of the highest quality outdoor scoreboards in the nation—live from the stage of the War Memorial Opera House. Concert quality audio combined with AT&T Park’s huge screen creates an unmatched operatic experience for attendees sitting both in the stands and on the baseball field itself.
Only registered ticket holders will be allowed early entrance for best seating beginning at 6:30 p.m. Field seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. All others who have not registered and do not have pre-printed tickets will be allowed to enter AT&T Park beginning at 7 p.m.
