Think Before Clicking Send

I bow to no one in my love of Bluebeard's Castle, and it remains to be seen just how many performances of it I will attend next week. But San Francisco Symphony might consider the message they're conveying with their suggested Father's Day present:


Father's Day Gift to the Symphony:

MTT conducts Bartók's
Duke Bluebeard's Castle



Dear Ms. Hirsch,


Give your dad a Father's Day gift he'll remember—an evening of music, food, and thrills at the San Francisco Symphony's performance of Duke Bluebeard's Castle! Before (or after) the performance enjoy acomplimentary appetizer or glass of wine* at 03 Bistro and Lounge, then head over to Davies Symphony Hall, just two blocks away, for the thrilling semi-staged performance of Duke Bluebeard's Castle.


Buy a full price ticket to the concert, then present your ticket at 03 Bistro and Lounge to recieve a complimentary glass of wine with purchase of an appetizer, or a complimentary appetizer with purchase of an entrée. Afterwards, head over to Davies Symphony Hall, just two blocks away, for the thrilling semi-staged performance of Duke Bluebeard's Castle.


The mysterious, psychological drama takes audiences on an eerie journey of the human subconscious. Specially designed multi-media projections, staging, and English captions help tell the tale of Duke Bluebeard's inquisitive new wife Judith, as she searches behind the seven doors of Bluebeard's castle to find hidden chambers, bloody weapons, and, eventually, Bluebeard's former wives! Watch a video on the making of the innovative set for the semi-staged performances.


Don't miss out on this exclusive San Francisco Symphony and 03 Bistro and Lounge offer. Buy now.

As a father who has received a fair share of odd fathers' day presents, I must say that that is definitely one creepy gift idea.

Indeed! Give your father an evening with a guy who has three wives locked up in his dungeon - and wants no. 4 there too.
