STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek at Bill Irwin as 'Captain Andy' in San Francisco Opera's SHOW BOAT

‚Äč

Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II's SHOW BOAT opens San Francisco Opera's Summer Season, running now through July 2, 2014. A watershed of American musical theater, Show Boat receives its company premiere in director Francesca Zambello's new grand-scale "beautifully sung, smartly staged and handsomely designed (Chicago Tribune)" production. Scroll down to watch a sneak peek at Tony winner Bill Irwin as 'Captain Andy'!

A beloved story of life on the Mississippi in the 1880s, SHOW BOAT is both a poignant love story and a powerful reminder of America's bitter legacy of racism. The score is filled with unforgettable songs such as "Ol' Man River" and "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man," and the dazzling production features large, colorful sets, sumptuous costumes and exhilarating dance numbers.

San Francisco Opera's production of SHOW BOAT runs in repertory with Verdi's La Traviata (June 11-July 13) and Puccini's Madama Butterfly (June 15-July 9). All performances feature the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and Chorus and take place at the War Memorial Opera House. Click here to buy tickets: http://bit.ly/SFOShowBoat.
