John Adams’ version of Antony and Cleopatra will have its world premiere on the opening weekend of the San Francisco Opera’s 100th season.
The season begins on June 15 with artistic director and principal conductor Carlos Kalmar leading music of Mozart, Wagner, and Price.
The opera had been scheduled for performances in late January, and according to Lyric, rehearsals were set to begin this week.
The staging follows the success of the composer Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones on the opening night of this season.
