Teatro Mistral

Chamber music opera productions and created mixed performance events that include theatre dance. We also produce concerts in various locations including a monthly event at Martuni's piano bar in San Francisco - Opera Cocktales. Teatro Mistral is a new bay area company based on a deeply held conviction that live theatre, opera and dance make an invaluable, irreplaceable contribution to the quality of life in the communities they serve. In our productions, we seek to understand how the changing nature of relationships colors our vision of the world we live in. We intend to include both time honored historically proven operas alongside lesser known compositions that deserve a hearing. Works from the Spanish speaking world are of particular interest to us. Teatro Mistral does not discriminate on the basis of age, color or creed.
