San Francisco Opera is set to celebrate Pride month, honoring LGBTQ+ artists, staff, audience, and community.

The celebration begins on June 22, coinciding with a performance of “El último sueño de Frida y Diego.” With the exterior of the War Memorial Opera House glowing in rainbow colors, Pride Night at the Opera will offer attendees a pairing of “El último sueño de Frida y Diego,” the new opera by composer Gabriela Lena Frank and librettist Nilo Cruz, and a night celebrating LGBTQ+ identity and creativity.

There will be a free, outdoor pre-performance community celebration and, for opera attendees, Pride-themed intermission festivities.

Then on June 25, members of the San Francisco Opera will march at the 53rd Annual San Francisco Pride Parade, one of the oldest celebrations of LGBTQ+ identity in the world.
