From our colorful seasons to your wall, the stunning imagery created to alert the public to our exciting productions is captured in glorious living color. From commissions to artists such as Retna and famed graphic designer Michael Schwab, these commemorative posters grace the city's streets each opera season.
The collection by famed Bay Area graphic artist, Michael Schwab, is still available in limited quantities. The most recent commission resulted in Schwab's dramatic rendition of Giuseppe Verdi's DON CARLO, a gloriously rich rendering of the opera's byzantine plot. The museum quality prints are gorgeously printed on heavy archival stock. Posters in 24" x 36" size are signed by the artist. Framed posters are available in very limited editions.
Schwab has created award-winning logos and posters for a remarkable list of prestigious clients, including The John F. Kennedy Center, Pebble Beach, Robert Mondavi, Major League Baseball, Peet’s Coffee, TCM and the Golden Gate National Parks. His work is striking in its simplicity.
