How fabulous, Lottie.  I love going to the ballpark to watch a game.  And to watch Rigoletto is going to be amazing.  I hope you get to go.

Lottie - AT&T park is a great place to watch baseball it should be just as great for opera.

Will the opera singers sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" at intermission?

Ron- Giants & Dodger-quite a rivalry there!

Jane, it sounds like a fun evening, doesn't it? AT&T Park is fabulous, and enjoying it for a FREE opera? Another 'only in San Francisco' moment!

Jim, it's fabulous venue. Last Saturday I was sailing on the bay; we passed the completely filled stadium while the ballgame was in session--quite an interesting perspective1

Phil, I guess if the Opera cast could sing the National Anthem there a few weeks ago, they could belt out "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" too! (Except for the little problem: they'll be singing at the Opera House while their performance is being simulcast.)

Lottie - This sounds like an amazing night of music.  I love being outdoors and hearing a performance.  I hope you go and have a great time!

Lottie-I know a lot of folks like the opera but I don't know if I would or not but it may be better than watching a ballgame.

Lottie, what a great idea! Verdi's Rigoletto at the Ballpark!  I like the idea of the free simulcast. The Dallas Opera has done some simulcasts and they have been very successful.

Laura, there are so many fun, free activities, even in a large city. This one sounds great.

Sharon L., I like opera for the music and the stage settings; the plots? Not so much!

Sharon P - this simulcast is an annual event; a great gift to the community, and a great way to expose opera to a new audience.

Lottie:  Wow ... this is one big opera stage!  Sounds like a great place to hear beautiful music.  Much like our Ravinia here in Chicago.  I think the opera world is making strides at educating and recruiting new listeners.  We have opera performances showing in movie theatres here in Chicagoland.  Now a baseball field ... what next??

Hello Gene - yes, I think traditional arts are trying hard with their outreach programs. What next? Perhaps new fans will return to the opera house!
