Romeo and Juliet Performance Update

To our Opera SB Family,

It is with heavy hearts that we have made the tough decision to cancel our production of Romeo and Juliet that was scheduled for May 1 & 3 at the Lobero Theatre.

Team OSB and I have tried to remain optimistic in hopes that the show could somehow go on, but considering the continuing travel disruptions, shelter-in-place orders that the California and other states have issued, and above all, our concern for the well-being of you, our staff, and our community, it seems imprudent to keep postponing the decision.

During this difficult time one of our priorities is to support our artists, orchestra musicians, and craftspeople who have been hit hard by cancellations locally, regionally, and nationally. For that reason, although we have to cancel the production, we will still make payments to all Romeo and Juliet artists and personnel.

This is a trying time for all of us. I hope that as part of the Opera SB Family you will continue to support us and enjoy our productions next season and beyond.

With all best wishes,

Kostis Protopapas, Artistic and General Director
