Bohème Out of the Box – Canceled
This performance has been canceled due to weather
San Francisco Opera is taking the show out of the house and over to Alameda Point with three free performances of Bohème Out of the Box on the weekend of March 10-12, 2023. In partnership with the City of Alameda and RADIUM Presents, Bohème Out of the Box will perform on RADIUM Runway next to Seaplane Lagoon, nestled between the brand-new Waterfront Park and the Naval Air Museum at 2151 Ferry Point, the proposed site of RADIUM performing arts center.
Bohème Out of the Box is a shortened version of Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème, a sweet and somewhat tragic love story about a young seamstress and poet struggling to get by in Paris, where the cost of living is impossibly expensive. That situation is not entirely unfamiliar to many young people living in the Bay Area today. The popular opera, which was the very first to be presented by San Francisco Opera 100 years ago, will be performed in an intimate one-hour version on a shipping container that has been turned into a mobile opera stage. There will be a food truck on site as well as beverages for sale, including beer and wine.
Seating will be on the taxiway and folding chairs will be available on a first come, first served basis. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and/or camp chair. Come early to get a good spot!
