“Top notch performers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

The venue is stunning, the performers are world class and the costumes are phenomenal. San Franciscans love their Opera, and for good reason. Don't worry that you need a tuxedo to enjoy the show. They want you to come and experience live opera, and are not concerned with your outfit.

Go, enjoy. You'll get hooked.

Besides the symphony this is one of SF's treasures and if you have the time it's worth seeing.

“I attended the whole Ring Cycle in one week.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

Really, in that week I lived in Wagner's opera. Magical, moving, and I can see how people would go around the world to see as many performances of it as possible. I would but I hate air travel now.
