Beginning May 1, music lovers can choose to attend one or more of the Ring operas. There are a limited number of great seats remaining for all 12 performances.”

In anticipation of the Ring, San Francisco Opera presents an ongoing Ring Festival of lectures, film screenings, panel discussions and musical performances lasting through the end of the third cycle. One highlight among the many Festival offerings are a series of Wagner chorus concerts featuring the San Francisco Opera Chorus on each Thursday (June 14, 21 and 28) during the three cycles.
