Join us at the War Memorial Opera House and enjoy an evening of scenes and arias. The culmination of the Merola summer, the Merola Grand Finale is your last chance to see these talented performers before they embark on the next stage of their careers. Maestro McGegan and the San Francisco Opera Orchestra join all of the Merola participants in a captivating evening of opera directed by apprentice stage director, Jennifer Williams.
