Tosca is Opera at the Ballpark in San Francisco
San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Giants partner with Webcor Builders to present one of the summer’s most exciting community events: a FREE live simulcast of Puccini’s Tosca at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 5 at AT&T Park.
Through state-of-the-art technology made possible by the Company’s Koret-Taube Media Suite, Tosca will be transmitted in 1920x1080 high definition (HD) to AT&T Park’s 103-feet wide Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision scoreboard—one of the highest quality outdoor scoreboards in the nation—live from the stage of the War Memorial Opera House. Concert quality audio combined with AT&T Park’s huge screen will create an unmatched operatic experience for attendees sitting in the stands and on the baseball field. Traditional baseball game concessions will be available, providing audiences the rare opportunity to eat hot dogs, peanuts, garlic fries and popcorn while listening to glorious opera. Over 23,000 music lovers enjoyed the Company’s June 2008 simulcast of Lucia di Lammermoor, and large crowds are once again expected to turn out and experience world-class opera in one of San Francisco’s most beautiful locations. Online registration for the simulcast, which assures early entrance into the ballpark for preferred seating and entry into a special prize drawing, began on April 6 at sfopera.com.
