San Francisco’s acclaimed Merola Opera Program will present the first opera commissioned in the Program’s 62-year history, the world premiere of "If I Were You" by distinguished American composer Jake Heggie and noted librettist Gene Scheer. Opera on the Couch provides a forum where psychoanalytic insights deepen the meaning and experience of opera. Our discussion of "If I Were You" will occur immediately after the show on Sunday, August 4, when the immediate visceral experience of music, drama and spectacle will enliven a fuller and deeper understanding of the emotional and psychological aspects of the work .

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
