San Francisco Opera's Fall 2019 is a season of sensations -daring and direct, drama at its richest and deepest with world class performances by some of the greatest singers. The season opens September 6, 2019 with a riveting new production of Charles Gounod's lyrical ROMEO and JULIET, followed by a harrowing production of Benjamin Britten's BILLY BUDD, based on the haunting final work by Herman Melville. This rarity of the operatic stage is beautifully offset by San Francisco Opera sterling new production of "THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO". Returning to the stage of the War Memorial Opera House is Puccini's MANON LESCAUT, a hit co-production with Lyric Opera of Chicago. Engelbert Humperdinck's enchanting "HANSEL & GRETEL", returning after far too long, is a magical evening, a wonderful first opera for families.
