Celebrating David – Gala Concert at San Francisco Opera
Thomas Hampson and Frederica von Stade will host a star-studded gala concert on June 16, in celebration of David Gockley’s retirement after ten years as General Director at San Francisco Opera. The San Francisco Opera Orchestra and Chorus will perform for this not-to-be-missed event, with conductors Nicola Luisotti, Jiří Bělohlávek, John DeMain, and Patrick Summers.
Artists featured in performance at the concert include sopranos Renée Fleming, Ana María Martínez, Karita Mattila, Patricia Racette, Nadine Sierra and Heidi Stober; mezzo-sopranos Susan Graham, Daniela Mack, and Dolora Zajick; tenors Michael Fabiano, Brian Jagde and Simon O’Neill; bass-baritone Eric Owens and bass René Pape.
Hampson is also featured in performance earlier in the evening with the San Francisco Symphony, in a programme highlighting John Adams’ “The Wound Dresser.” Additional information is available at the following link.
