THESE CONCERTS, A PART OF THE BARBRO AND BERNARD OSHER STAGED PRODUCTION FUND, ARE MADE POSSIBLE BY A GENEROUS GIFT FROM BARBRO AND BERNARD OSHER.
Director Peter Sellars stages a new production of Kaija Saariaho’s opera Adriana Mater, part of a multi-year partnership between the acclaimed director, Esa-Pekka Salonen, and the SF Symphony. Set in a country on the brink of civil war, the opera explores the relationship between a mother and her son as they navigate a world rumbling with the threat of violence. Their gritty reality is offset by their hopes and dreams for a better future and as the music swells and recedes, the protagonists must decide between a life of revenge and one of forgiveness.
