Lucia Tonight: Free, with Garlic Fries!

San Francisco Opera's ballpark simulcast of Lucia di Lammermoor is tonight. The production, and especially the singing, and especially Natalie Dessay, got great reviews. There's Joshua Kosman in the Chron, and, unusually, columnist Jon Carroll, with a particularly funny take on the piece. 

Tickets are still available: you register and print out your tickets at the Opera web site.

I won't be there. I was supposed to see the Symphony, which is performing the Magnus Lindberg commission, Seht die Sonne, yesterday. I should have checked the schedule, because the performance was a rare Thursday matinee, which I discovered around 5 p.m., long after the concert was over. I'll be at the Symphony tonight, and will catch Lucia another time, or not at all.

How funny, I'm going to be at the symphony as well.

Cool! Where are you sitting? Should we meet at halftime, er, intermission?

The Opera Tattler said...

Darn it, I didn't see this until now! I'd love to meet you though, will send an email.

Oh, too bad!

I will be at SFS this week as well, on Friday night.
