S.F. Opera's "Werther" at 30% discount
Opera guru Thomas Cunningham *99 has talked the S.F. Opera into offering Princeton alums and other friends a 30% discount on tickets for Massenet's "Werther" at 8 p.m. on Friday evening, October 1.

Jules Massenet's Werther is a richly orchestrated late 19th-century French opera based on Goethe's 18th-century semi-autobiographical story of The Sorrows of Young Werther.

The San Francisco Opera production features an outstanding cast, including two of the most dazzling vocalists on the scene today.  Tenor Ramón Vargas, “a creamy-voiced singer who floats high notes easily” (The New York Times), returns to San Francisco Opera in one of his signature roles, a poet who cannot bear the pain of unrequited love. Singing Charlotte, mezzo-soprano Alice Coote “spares nothing in emotion, vocal energy and heartbreak” (The Observer, London).

Francisco Negrin directs San Francisco's new production, with imaginative staging to express the underlying emotional truths. Conductor Emmanuel Villaume brings the exotic swirl of Massenet's music to life, eliciting “a properly French sound” from the orchestra (Chicago Tribune).

Prior to the performance, you are invited to join Thomas and friends for a private gathering at a location TBD. Participants will be sent reception directions the week of the event. If you skip the reception, be sure to arrive at the Opera House well before the 8 p.m. curtain.

Schedule of Events:
6:30 pm Private gathering at a location TBD
7:30 pm Walk to seats
8 pm Curtain goes up on Werther. The performance will end at about 10:45.

To order tickets, go to http://www.sfopera.com/offer and enter the offer code TOM. 

The discount is available through this special SF Opera web page only, not by phone or in person, and it expires at midnight on September 30, 2010.

The SF Opera strongly suggests that you order early, as performances often sell out. Seating is assigned at the time of purchase and is not reserved in advance of this offer.
