“Love makes you happy. Love makes you cruel.” It’s the old story – King goes off to war, tells his daughters not to go into a locked room containing the Book of Fate, daughters don’t listen and one of them ends up marrying a pig. Drawing on Romanian and Norwegian folk tales, this magical show, which has its trotters in the worlds of opera and musical theatre, has delighted audiences in the UK and USA since its premiere in 2006. SFCM cast to be announced.

About SFCM's Opera and Musical Theatre Program

The SFCM Opera and Musical Theatre program draws exceptionally talented young singers from around the world and provides them with advanced training in vocal style, acting, stage movement, and other essentials of stagecraft. Each year, SFCM produces four fully staged opera and musical theatre productions with full or chamber orchestra. Recent fully staged operas have included L’elisir d’amoreDon GiovanniMansfield ParkPostcard from MoroccoThe Rake’s ProgressCosì fan tutteThe Marriage of Figaro, and former faculty composer Conrad Susa’s Transformations. SFCM has hosted workshops for in-development opera projects such as Mason Bates’s The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs and Jake Heggie’s Great Scott.

In addition to fully staged productions, a number of scenes, programs, and other performances with piano accompaniment are presented each year. Opera students also have an opportunity to receive coaching from San Francisco Opera music staff, and to participate in productions tailored for school-age audiences in collaboration with San Francisco Opera’s Education Department.

SFCM’s Musical Theatre Workshop provides ensemble experience to singer/actors with an emphasis on American musical theatre, examining one or more musical theatre composers and their works through rehearsals and performance. Recent performances include such works as The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling BeeShe Loves MeCompanyLittle WomenUrinetown, and The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!).

Visiting artists have included Ryan Taylor (General Director, Minnesota Opera), Roy Rallo (Stage Director, San Francisco Opera), David Maier (Fight Director, San Francisco Opera), Barbara Scott (Improvisation Technique), Matt Chapman (Laban Technique), and Jose Luis Moscovich (General Director, West Bay Opera).
