SFOpera - 5 ways Opera is like Baseball

5 ways Opera is like Baseball

An evening spent at the opera is a much different evening than one spent at the ballpark. Rather than the smell of the deep fryer filling the air, beers in hand, and the umpire screaming, “BATTERS OUT,” going to the opera is a night full of champagne, climactic death scenes, and passionate arias.

However, the similarities between Opera and Baseball go beyond being America’s favorite pastimes. On Saturday, July 2nd, San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Giants will merge these two phenomenal forms of entertainment for a night of Opera at the Ball Park.
