He thinks it's better to see an opera on the big screen than live. David Gockley's answer Peter Gelb's popcorn and soda? Peanuts and cracker jacks:
San Francisco Opera will simulcast Camille Saint-Saëns’s “Samson and Delilah” (the Biblical story taking place in Gaza and the Vale of Sorek) to the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park. No double-header, the live telecast, featuring Clifton Forbis as Samson and Olga Borodina as Delilah, will take place in the ballpark beginning at 8 p.m. on Sept. 28.
Gockley said he's "very excited" about expanding the simulcasts. "I'm so happy to say we're moving ahead with this," he said. "We started a year ago, prior to the Met's broadcasts. They have really jumped out in a major way, and I don't know if we can keep pace step by step, but we're certainly going to try to find our niche."
