Berkeley | Free San Francisco Chamber Orchestra Concerts

operaThe SF Chamber Orchestra season closes with a program of musical stories, spoken and sung, featuring four rising opera stars from the San Francisco Opera Center’s famed Adler Fellows program.

  • Barber’s brilliant Hand of Bridge—with libretto by composer Gian Carlo Menotti—is a nine-minute production featuring two married couples playing a hand of bridge and singing about troubles that lie just beneath the surface.
  • Mozart’s Bastien und Bastienne was written at the tender age of twelve, and it is an equally brilliant, one-act comic masterpiece that displays Mozart’s precocity in a series of charming scenes and songs.
  • Composer in Residence Gabriela Lena Frank, in collaboration with Pulitzer-winning playwright Nilo Cruz have crafted an Andean folktale about the creation of the world and spun it into an exciting new work for narrator and chamber orchestra.
