San Francisco Opera Center and ODC Theater Announce Love/Hate World Premiere Performances

by Jack Perla & librettist Rob Bailis…

We’re delighted to announce that The San Francisco Opera Center has joined forces with ODC Theatre and Music Without Walls to present the world premiere performances of Love/Hate in April 2012 at the newly renovated ODC Theatre in San Francisco. This is huge news for everyone involved with this project – to start with, our San Francisco cast will be provided by The San Francisco Opera Center, from its world-renowned Adler Fellowship Program!!

Love/Hate was commissioned by ODC Theater and American Opera Projects.  Following San Francisco, the production will travel to New York, Philadelphia (Center City Opera Theater), and Houston (The Houston Grand Opera, HGOco). We’re thrilled by this new partnership – in addition to the tremendous artistic benefit to the production, it also means greatly increased visibility for the opera. Rob and I are deeply honored by the early support of Sheri Greenawald, Director of the San Francisco Opera Center , and San Francisco Opera Associate General Director Matthew Shilvock. Our deepest thanks to them, and to all the organizations and individuals that have helped develop and present Love/Hate.
