Established by San Francisco Opera General Director Kurt Herbert Adler and named for his predecessor, Gaetano Merola, who founded the company, Merola Opera Program is about to embark on its 60th season.

Now the oldest and largest such program supporting young artists as they launch professional careers, Merola has hundreds of alumni performing around the world, including some of opera’s greatest stars. Many alumni have also participated in SFO’s associated Adler Fellowship Program.

The anniversary session provides an all-expenses-paid 12-week summer opera training program in San Francisco for 29 young artists from Canada, Poland, China, Colombia, Mexico, and 14 states; they were selected from more than 600 auditioned applicants.

The highlight of the 2017 season’s announcement today at the Diane B. Wilsey Center was that composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer will write Merola Program’s first commissioned work for its world premiere in 2019. Commissioning and production are made possible by major donations from Barbara Bruser Clark and Scott Lord. <snip>
