SHOW BOAT on WRTI! Saturday, October 25, 1 PM

Oct 20, 2014

The San Francisco Opera presents Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein III's SHOW BOAT on WRTI. A true classic of American musical theater, this tale of life on the Mississippi from the 1880s to the 1920s is both a poignant love story and a powerful reminder of the bitter legacy of racism.

You can't help but love Jerome Kern's Show Boat! Created in 1927, this seminal masterpiece gave American musical theater and opera a new voice — one with powerful subject matter, astonishing musical variety, and an unmistakably American atmosphere. It's one memorable, heart-wrenching song after another : “Ol’ Man River”...“Make Believe”...“You Are Love”...“Bill”...“Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.”

Nathan Gunn and Ashley Brown star in this production. Join us on Saturday, June 16th from 1 to 4 pm.
