San Francisco Opera will hold its annual simulcast from Civic Center in AT&T Park this Friday, June 5. This year's piece is Puccini's three-act drama Tosca, a sordid tale of deception, sexism, and betrayal, complete with a love triangle! Admission is free, but if you RSVP ahead of time, print your ticket, and remember to bring it, you'll get "preferred" admission starting at 6:30 while the general public waits until 7. Pre-registering is also your best shot at getting a seat on the field. Show starts at 8(ish).
"High-low" may be a buzzword in the fashion world, but what about the concept of high-low entertainment? It can happen, as the San Francisco Giants have teamed up with Webcor builders to broadcast San Francisco Opera's June 5th performance of Tosca, live in HD at AT&T Park. Puccini's epic tale of political intrigue, sexual coercion and hypocrisy will be transmitted live from the stage of the War Memorial Opera House onto AT&T Park's Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision Scoreboard, allowing fans the pleasure of lounging on a picnic blanket on the field or taking a stroll around the stadium while enjoying the delicate aria Vissi d'Arte and the sensuous summer air. Sounds magnifico.
