Princeton & Harvard at SF Opera: Mascagni’s “Cavalleria Rusticana" & Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci"

The PCNC & the Harvard Club of SF continue our series of evenings enjoying classical music together. This Fall, we will hear Mascagni’s “Cavalleria Rusticana” & Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci" with the SF Opera. SEE NOTE BELOW ABOUT EARLY ARRIVALS!

There will be a brief reception and a no-host bar one hour before curtain. 

Dr. Alexandra Amati-Camperi, President of the Harvard Club of San Francisco, will lead a special pre-performance discussion.
If you are showing up between 6–6:30pm, enter the opera house through the North Carriage doors that are nearest the Veterans courtyard and memorial. Those are the only doors open before 6:30pm. All remaining doors of the opera house will open at 6:30pm, one hour before the performance. There will be a table at the front of the North Dress Circle lounge for check-in and another to the side for name tags.
