PRODUCTION TREASURES SALE
We bring opera to you. Not only on stage, but also via this auction site. We are auctioning off some of our treasure in an effort to find good new homes for sets, props, costumes, miscellaneous other production materials and hidden gems. All productions have been performed to great acclaim on the San Francisco Opera stage as well as other places (inter-)nationally over the past 4 decades. Most of the production items for auction are in good or even very good condition; some have seen the light of the stage for the first time 40 years ago, others as recent as a few months ago. All of the items for auction are currently stored in 40’ High-Cube shipping containers. The containers are also up for grabs and come with the production, so get ready for an exciting opportunity to be the next owners of one of our opera productions.
About SAN FRANCISCO OPERA
A leader among international opera companies for nine decades, San Francisco Opera was founded by Gaetano Merola (1881–1953) and incorporated in 1923. The Company's first performance took place on September 26, 1923 in the City's Civic Auditorium (La Bohème, with Queena Mario and Giovanni Martinelli, conducted by Merola). Originally presented over two weeks, San Francisco Opera's season now contains approximately 75 performances of ten operas between September and July.
