North America’s second-largest opera company is right at our fingertips. The San Francisco Opera has been part of the Bay Area’s cultural scene since its inception in 1923. The regular season runs from September through December and the summer season runs from June through July. Weekend matinees are a great way to introduce children to the world of opera. Tickets for performances run from $25–$195. Ten-dollar standing-room tickets (cash only; one per person) are sold on the day of show.The San Francisco Opera Guild runs educational programs at different schools in the City. Artists and students collaborate in workshops for kids starting in kindergarten all the way through high school.Students are invited to attend final dress rehearsals of a season's main stage production. High school students are also invited to attend a special formal night at the opera in conjunction with the final dress rehearsal of a season's main stage production.Camps:
