Unsurprising Update from SFO

Not exactly a press release, but a note to the press:

Due to the ongoing pandemic, San Francisco Opera is re-envisioning our upcoming 2021 schedule. The originally announced 2021 Spring Season running April 25–May 16 at the War Memorial Opera House—Rossini’s The Barber of Seville (Il Barbiere di Siviglia), Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg, and concerts featuring sopranos Lianna Haroutounian and IrĂ©ne Theorin—will not take place as planned.

Please stay tuned—on Tuesday, February 16, we’ll be announcing a newly imagined lineup of events and experiences, whether in new digital programs/content or reimagined live performances, as public health mandates allow. Complete details about the new programming, as well as information for current ticketholders on how spring tickets can be transferred, will be shared on February 16.  

Please also note: We currently anticipate announcing the 2021–22 Season in late spring of 2021 and will keep you posted.

There's also a longer and more emotive version to subscribers, over Matthew Shilvock's signature and using many of his signature phrases. :)
