Joint Ivy Alumni Night at SF Opera - “Innocence”

  • 21 Jun 2024
  • 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • War Memorial Opera House, 301 Van Ness Ave., SF 94102

Join an all-Ivy alumni curated night at the San Francisco Opera! Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with fellow alumni and friends at the pre-performance social in the North Dress Circle.

Come to socialize and to learn more during the pre-opera talk about the American premiere of "Innocence," acclaimed by the New York Times as a "masterpiece." Innocence takes us into the complex emotional journey of a group of people recovering from inconceivable trauma. In a gripping drama, the work of Kaija Saariaho, Sofi Oksanen and Aleksi Barrière unfolds a harrowing story of emotional shock and surprise in which our understanding of innocence and guilt is continually upended.

**PLEASE NOTE: In order to attend the pre-performance social, attendees must purchase a ticket to the evening's performanceA special discount code is available for Ivy alumni.

Wear your Cornell red!
