Opera At The Park
Sep 21 - San Francisco

Gounod's opera "Romeo and Juliet" will be simulcast from the War Memorial Opera House onto the new high definition (2160 x 4672 pixel) Diamond Vision Board accompanied by performance quality audio.
Best of all it is FREE.

The stadium opens at 5:30 PM for those who have preregistered (see below) and the opera begins at 7:30. The performance lasts about 2 hours and 50 minutes including one intermission. It ends with plenty of time to catch a BART or Caltrain home.

This is a great introduction or reintroduction to opera in an informal setting. For those not fluent in French (yes, this opera is sung in French) the performance is subtitled. There is a pre-performance presentation which reviews the story line, which you most likely already know, and the music. All the food concessions normally open during a Giants baseball game will be open during the opera. Free opera and garlic fries, what's not to like?

There is seating in the stands or one can sit on the field (folding chairs are prohibited). It will get cold so bring warm clothes and blankets if you plan to sit on the field. Personally I have found sitting in the stands to be a more pleasant experience. Let me know if you plan to sit on the stands or on the field when you RSVP.

This will probably put you on a promotional mailing list for the SF Opera, but that's not so bad.

RSVP below and I will email details of where and when we are meeting up. It will be somewhere near Oracle Park between 5:30 and 6 PM. Exact details will depend on the number of RSVP's. There is a possibility of gathering for an early dinner nearby. Let me know if you might be interested.

Don't even think of driving to Oracle Park. Parking near the stadium is extremely limited and extremely expensive. Plus the Janet Jackson concert at the Chase Center at 8 PM that evening will only make the congestion worse. However, it may be possible to find parking several blocks away if you arrive well in advance.

Caltrain is a good public transit option from the Peninsula and South Bay. Oracle Park is just one block from the Caltrain station at 4th and King.

From Montgomery BART on Market street it is about a 20 minute walk down 2nd Street to Oracle. The Muni 10 bus follows the same route. Muni Metro rail also runs from Market Street to the ballpark.
One can also walk along the Embarcadero from Embarcadero BART or take the Muni Metro.
