The San Francisco Opera will follow up its popular Carmen for Families with a Wozzeck for Families. The perfect introduction to opera, Wozzeck for Families is a 95 minute performance of the complete opera, telling the classic story of love, jealousy, betrayal and death in 15 short, cinematic scenes. Opera newcomers will thrill to the captivating tonalities of the 2nd Viennese School. Young audiences will be drawn to the opera's final scene, in which only children are on stage. The production is recommended for ages 10 and up due to the mature nature of the characters and story of Wozzeck. Patrons enjoying this production will no doubt look forward to Salome for Families in a subsequent season.
