South San Francisco, CA  February 8, 2023

The City of South San Francisco was chosen as one of four locations to host this free, live, mobile stage performance

In partnership with the City of South San Francisco, San Francisco Opera’s Bohème Out of the Box is coming to Orange Memorial Park in March! This free, live performance of an abridged version of La Bohème, composer Giacomo Puccini’s popular work about love and loss among a group of bohemian artists, will be performed in an intimate one-hour version on a converted shipping-container-turned-mobile opera stage.
“We are honored and thrilled that the San Francisco Opera has chosen our City to be one of four mobile locations to perform Bohème Out of the Box,” said South San Francisco Mayor Flor Nicolas. “This recognition further emphasizes that our City is a great place to live, work, learn, and play.”
Directed by Jose Maria Condemi, Bohème Out of the Box, sung in Italian and including English narration, features a cast of San Francisco Opera’s Adler Fellows and guest artists with piano accompaniment. This free performance brings LaBohème’s powerful emotions and soaring voices, accompanied by keyboard, to the South San Francisco community as part of the Company’s current Centennial Season.
The stage will be positioned on the lawn at Orange Memorial Park, 781 Tennis Drive, South San Francisco, with the Joseph Fernekes Recreation Building as its backdrop. The performance dates are:
  • Friday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m.,
  • Saturday, March 18 at 7:30 p.m., and
  • Sunday, March 19 at 2:00 p.m.

Bohème Out of the Box is free (general admission). Registration at is encouraged. For complete information about San Francisco Opera’s Bohème Out of the Box, which travels to outdoor locations throughout the Bay Area this spring as part of the Company’s Centennial Season, please visit
