San Francisco Opera Archives

Located in the Diane B. Wilsey Center for Opera, the Archives preserve our Company’s rich holdings and artifacts, documenting our activity as the oldest surviving opera company on the West Coast.

About the Collections

Our Company’s storied history is chronicled in photographs, programs, audio and video recordings, press clippings, historic objects and much more.

We are actively digitizing our photographic and audio collections and building better infrastructure to make our collections more readily accessible to all.
