Speaker: Dramaturg Emeritus Kip Cranna
The Christmas story is celebrated in countless musical works, but mostly for the concert stage, like Handel’s beloved Messiah. But what about opera? Far from saying “Bah, humbug!," composers aplenty have found the Christmas Season a perfect backdrop for operatic storytelling. To help get you in a holiday mood, San Francisco Opera’s Dramaturg Emeritus will treat you to a glimpse of some Yuletide operas spanning the gamut from the silly to the sublime. Instead of a Wagnerian “Hojotoho,” it’s time for an operatic “Ho ho ho!”
