S.F. Opera tries ballpark venue

September 28, 2007|From the Associated Press

Putting a major league twist on efforts by U.S. opera companies to bring their art to the masses, the San Francisco Opera plans to broadcast its latest production at the city's baseball stadium while it's being performed live across town.

Instead of rooting for their downtrodden home team, thousands of people are expected to fill AT&T Park's field and lower stands to watch Camille Saint-Saƫns' "Samson and Delilah" on a jumbo video screen.
