SF Opera announces 100th season, to kick off with the premiere of John Adams’ ‘Antony and Cleopatra’

Looking, as did the Roman deity Janus, forward and back, San Francisco Opera has announced its upcoming 100th season, one that is both long on ambition and heavy on nostalgia. In a livestreamed news conference early Wednesday evening, general director Matthew Shilvock and music director Eun Sun Kim unveiled big plans for the company’s 2022-2023 centennial, beginning with an opening night concert and an Opera Ball in the City Hall rotunda on Sept. 9 and encompassing eight subsequent mainstage operas and several additional concerts and celebratory events through June 30, 2023.
