100 Years of Wagner at the San Francisco Opera

Sat, 03/25/2023 - 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

San Francisco has had a love affair with opera for more than 168 years. In fact, citizens during the Gold Rush were mad for it. Between 1851 and the earthquake of 1906, nearly 5,000 opera performances were given in San Francisco in 26 different theaters
San Francisco Opera was founded in 1923, thanks to a young Neapolitan conductor named Gaetano Merola (1881–1953) who came to San Francisco in 1906.
During this 100 year history, the operas of Richard Wagner held a prominent place in the repertory.
The Wagner Society welcomes Jeffrey McMillan, Senior Communications Manager for San Francisco Opera. McMillan will talk about the history of Wagner performance at the San Francisco Opera and the illustrious Wagnerians who are a part of this history.
