San Francisco Opera to Reimagine Spring Season

By Francisco Salazar

The San Francisco Opera has announced it will be re-envisioning its 2021 spring schedule.

In a statement, the company said, “due to the ongoing pandemic, San Francisco Opera is re-envisioning our upcoming 2021 schedule. The originally announced 2021 Spring Season running April 25–May 16 at the War Memorial Opera House—Rossini’s ‘The Barber of Seville (Il Barbiere di Siviglia),’ Zemlinsky’s ‘Der Zwerg,’ and concerts featuring sopranos Lianna Haroutounian and Iréne Theorin—will not take place as planned.”

The company also revealed that it will present a new reimagined lineup of programs on Feb. 16. The company said that the new lineup would be new digital programs/content or reimagined live performances, as public health mandates allow.

The San Francisco Opera is the latest company to cancel its 2020-21 season and do an overhaul on its program. More information coming soon.
