And Even More.

Two additional issues with the new SF Opera web site:

  • If there's a season calendar with a month-by-month layout - like a wall calendar, you might remember those - I can't find it. There is a scrolling calendar, but you can't see more than maybe a week at a time.
  • The new skin for Tessitura, which handles on-the-web ticket sales, is ghastly. It loads slowly, the seat labels are unreliable for the last row of a section, and the graphical display is much smaller than the old display. This is a serious problem for anyone with poor eyesight, which might be the cases for older audience members, who may be more likely to be using a desktop machine than a smartphone.

I was discussing this with G. Rowe last night. Without a month to month calendar, it's very difficult, if not impossible to put the dates into context. It's pretty, though.

I must laugh, bitterly: by coincidence, your comment arrived as I was exchanging email with Janos and a third party about exactly this problem. I seriously suggest a printed letter to SFO about the new web site.
