Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Founded in 1923 by Gaetano Merola, San Francisco Opera is internationally recognized as one of the top opera companies in the world and is heralded for its first-rate productions and rosters of international, world-class opera stars.  To date, San Francisco Opera has commissioned 15 world premieres and presented 22 U.S. premieres.                          Core Programmatic Areas:1) World-Class Productions.  San Francisco Opera presents, on average, 68 performances of 9 mainstage productions of the highest artistic quality to over 200,000 audience members per season.  As an undisputed champion of new work (having commissioned 35 operas while at Houston Grand Opera), Gernal Director David Gockley is committed to commissioning a new opera approximately every two years, and is also committed to presenting mainstage family productions. 2) Community Outreach.  The Company's free community engagement events include Opera in the Park in Golden Gate Park; Opera at the Ballpark simulcasts in AT&T Park; and a Community Open House.  Over 50,000 people attend these events annually.  Community partners for simulcasts have also included Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; Wells Fargo Center for the Arts; Mondavi Center for the Arts; (U.C. Davis); Stanford University; and Cal Performances (U.C. Berkeley). 3) Training and Professional Development.  The Company boasts an internationally recognized training and professional development program - the Adler Fellowship Program.  Founded in 1977 as the San Francisco Affiliate Artists Opera Program, Adler Fellowships are performance-oriented, two-year residencies for young artists of major operatic potential.  Adler Fellowships offer unique opportunities to young artists to develop their skills and gain performance experience under the aegis of a major international opera company.  The program has trained some of today's most celebrated opera stars, including sopranos Laura Claycomb, Patricia Racette, Ruth Ann Swenson, and Deborah Voigt; mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick; baritone Mark Delavan; and bass-baritone John Relyea. 4) Education.  Opera ARIA: Arts Resources in Action is San Francisco Opera's suite of K-12 education programs that integrates learning about opera into the classroom.  All Opera ARIA programs are in conjunction with and endorsed by Bay Area public schools' Visual and Performing Arts offices and meet CA State Standards.  To bring the art form to life, the Opera offers a variety of in-school and field trip experiences such as classroom visits with opera professionals - young resident performers and the costume, set and prop staffs.  Other experiential opportunities include attendance at dress rehearsals; tours of the Opera House; a library of books, study guides, CDs and DVDs which serve as an introduction to opera and to the specific operas being studied; and the creation and performance of mini-operas by the students.  Schools in need receive simple tone and percussion instruments useful for learning about, creating and playing music.  The Opera also provides comprehensive Professional Development for educators whether or not they participate in the Program.  Approximately 59% of students with whom the Opera works are considered socio-economically disadvantaged; 43% are English language learners.  Student ethnicity: 32.8% Hispanic/Latino; 32% Asian; 13.1% White; 13% African-American; 4.1% Filpino; 3% multi-ethnic; 1.5% Pacific Islander; 0.5% Native American.Media Suite: San Francisco Opera continues to produce radio programming, archival and educational DVDs, web videos, cinemacasts, Opera Vision, and simulcasts thanks to its high-definition broadcast standard Koret-Taube Media Suite - the first in-house system installed in any American opera house.  This mission-driven initiative leverages the various available and emerging technological opportunities for digital distribution of opera content and helps the Opera cultivate and broaden its audiences of the future.
