Merola Opera Program

Merola Opera Program Merola Opera Program presents

San Francisco’s acclaimed Merola Opera Program, one of the most prestigious and selective opera training programs in the world, offers audiences a look at the opera stars of tomorrow. The program’s 61st season continues with a lively, fully-staged production of "The Rake’s Progress." Based loosely on the eponymous eight paintings and engravings by William Hogarth (1733-1735), Stravinsky’s dramatic opera follows the decline and fall of a profligate heir who makes a devil’s bargain with Nick Shadow, abandoning life in the country and his tender fiancée for the wicked temptations of London.

Discount available for purchase of three San Francisco-based Summer Festival productions (deadline June 18, 2018). Also discount for groups of 10 or more. $15 student tickets available in limited quantity in advance at San Francisco Opera Box Office.

For information or to order tickets visit or call the San Francisco Opera Box Office at 415-864-3330. The box office is open Monday, 10am-5pm, and Tuesday through Friday, 10am-6pm.
