20181209IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

Experience how precious life really is.

George Bailey stands on a snowy bridge at Christmas and contemplates his end. An angel training for her wings hears his plea and journeys through his memories to save his soul. Based on Frank Capra’s beloved film, this timeless story of second chances debuts just in time for the holiday season.

This performance, with music by Jake Heggie and libretto by Gene Scheer, is this opera’s West Coast Premier.

Special group rates for this Sunday 2 p.m. matinee on December 9, 2018 are available at https://sfopera.com/offer?offer=ANGEL. The discount code is ANGEL

The matinee is perfect for friends and family, and a great way to celebrate our many December celebrations of life. We will meet at 1:15 in the Dress Circle North so the kiddies can get goodie bags that will make them feel extra-special young opera-goers. Recommended for ages 8 and up. Great chance for photos too! The performance begins at 2 p.m., and it is sung in English, 2 hour 30 minutes includes one intermission.

A co-commission and co-production with Houston Grand Opera and Indiana University, Jacobs School of Music. Full Synopsis at https://sfopera.com/1819season/wonderful/synopsis/
