The Merola Opera Program and the San Francisco Public Library present Merola Goes to the Movie, featuring free screenings of operas on film.
Join us on Sunday, March 26th, 1 pm, for a free film screening of Rossini's L'italiana in Algeri, a 2013 Rossini Opera Festival production featuring Mario Cassi, Alex Esposito, and Mariangela Sicilia.
This screening takes place at the San Francisco Public Library - Main Branch (100 Larkin Street) in the Koret Auditorium. Admission is free.
Rossini’s sparkling story of the intrepid Isabella and the men who love her turns into a swinging sixties, James Bond-style adventure in this madcap, gag-filled, and vocally exquisite production.
Before the screening, a Merola representative will give a short talk about the opera. Guests are also welcome to enter a free drawing to win Merola Opera Program prizes.
Doors for seating open at 12:30 pm. All seating is first come and not reserved in advance. Early arrival is suggested for best seats.
