Join Us For A Tour

Ever wonder how opera sets are made? Well, now is your chance.

Our group (yes, San Diego Opera has a Meetup group) has planned our first meet-up of the season - a free tour of our Scenic Studio.

You’ll get to see the phenomenal scenic artists, watch the skilled carpenters at work and see first-hand how these talented people bring the their designs to larger-than-life.

SDO’s Scenic Studio is wrapping up the building for a new production of Lucia di Lammermoor for Chicago Lyric Opera. You can see the final touches going into place. And it’s a really cool design too.

The tour will be given by either Ron Allen (Head of Production) or John David Peters (Production/Construction Carpenter). Both are the best in the biz so you’re in for a treat.

We’ll tour Monday, August 15, during the day at 9:30 AM. We're sorry that some of you may have to miss because of work commitments, but we can only offer the tour when the Studio is open. (During the day!)

Still, we hope that many of you can come along.

What to wear: No open toed shoes and wear something you don’t mind if you get dirt on it. We also have some rather fabulous special goggles for you to wear in certain areas of the studio – but we provide those!

You can RSVP at or on our Facebook events page where you will find the address and other information.
