On Friday June 5th we (Sanne, I and a couple of friends) attended the performance of Puccini’s Tosca in the San Francisco Giants ballpark. It was a free (!), high definition video simulcast transmitted from the Opera House to the scoreboard. We sat down on the grass close to home base. All the areas open to public were filled to the brim. I think more than 15,000 people were eating garlic fries, drinking wine ($11 per glass) and consume subtitled opera. Welcome to America.
I haven’t experienced opera a lot, but I really enjoyed it all.
The next live simulcast in the ballpark will be Verdi’s Il Trovatore on September 19 at 8 pm. I will be there.
