Classic Arts News   San Francisco Opera to Offer Live Open-Air Simulcast of Rigoletto
 
On Friday, October 6, San Francisco Opera will offer a live, free, open-air simulcast of Verdi's Rigoletto. The performance — starring Paolo Gavanelli in the title role, Mary Dunleavy as Gilda and Giuseppe Gipali as the Duke of Mantua, directed by Harry Silverstein and conducted by Stephen Lord — will be transmitted directly from the War Memorial Opera House to a large screen in Civic Center Plaza in downtown San Francisco.

This will be San Francisco Opera's second free real-time simulcast; the first, of Puccini's Madama Butterfly starring Patricia Racette, was on May 27, opening night of the company's 2006 summer season. An estimated 8,000 people attended.
