Event Details

Opera Movie Screening | SF Main Library

Merola Goes to the Movies is a new series at the SF Public Library that presents great opera-themed movies that have been captured on film.

Each film is preceded by a short, pre-screening talk by a Merola representative who will give an insider’s look at the opera and interesting facts about the making of the film.

All screenings start at 1 pm at the Koret Auditorium at the San Francisco Public Library Main Branch. Admission is free. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Screenings are recommended for ages 10 and older.

Robert Dornhelm directs La Boheme, featuring Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon. Bertrand de Billy conducts for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Young artists find and lose love in bohemian Paris and face the heartbreaking truth that love is not stronger than death. This film version, featuring the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, brings to vivid life the garrets and cafés of the City of Light and the joy and tragedy of la vie bohème.
