Classic Arts News   San Francisco Opera to Give Free Concert in Dolores Park May 27
For the second consecutive year, San Francisco Opera will offer a free Memorial Day weekend concert in the city's Dolores Park.

Mezzo-soprano Susan Graham and other artists (to be announced) from the 2007 summer season will join music director and principal conductor Donald Runnicles and the San Francisco Opera Orchestra for an afternoon of operatic classics on Sunday, May 27.

Last year, approximately 4,000 people attended the inaugural performance in Dolores Park. The concert is free and open to the public; no tickets are required.

The San Francisco Opera's summer season, which runs from June 2 to July 1, features Mozart's Don Giovanni (with baritone Mariusz Kwiecien in the title role and a staging by David McVicar), Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier (featuring Joyce DiDonato as Octavian and Soile Isokoski as the Marschallin), and the company premiere of Gluck's Iphig_nie en Tauride (starring Susan Graham, Paul Groves and Bo Skovhus in a Robert Carsen production shared with Lyric Opera of Chicago).
