Ivy Alliance Night at SF Opera's "Show Boat"
San Francisco Opera offers Ivy alumni and friends a special 30% discount on tickets for "Show Boat" on Tuesday, July 1, plus a complimentary pre-performance wine reception and talk with the Opera's Director of Artistic Administration, Greg Henkel.

SHOW BOAT COMPANY PREMIERE
 
Music by Jerome Kern, book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
 
A true classic of American musical theater, this tale of life on the Mississippi from the 1880s to the 1920s is both a poignant love story and a powerful reminder of the bitter legacy of racism. Director Francesca Zambello’s grand-scale production is "a triumph—a stylish, fast-paced and colorful show that had the capacity audience on its feet, cheering loud and long" (Chicago Classical Review).
 
The magnificent score, which includes such classic songs as "Ol’ Man River," "Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man," "Make Believe" and "You Are Love," will sound glorious "under the authoritative baton of music-theater maestro John DeMain" (Chicago Tribune). "No one should miss it" (Chicago Sun-Times).
 
According to San Francisco Opera General Director David Gockley, "Show Boat will be done in grand opera fashion in the way the creators conceived. The San Francisco Opera House is—I believe—the appropriate venue for these great classic musicals that require full-voiced, 'legit' singing."
 
"One memorable song follows another, each an enduring thread in the fabric of American popular culture." –Chicago Tribune
 
Prior to the 8 p.m. performance, join your fellow alums for a complimentary wine reception and private talk with San Francisco Opera's Director of Artistic Administration, Greg Henkel. The talk and reception will begin at 6:30pm and take place on the Dress Circle North Promenade in the Opera House. The Dress Circle level is located 3 flights up from the Lobby level.
