Guerrilla Opera 5

 

Dear friends,

After much deliberation over what to do or say during 100 Thousand Poets for Change, we decided to let the city speak for itself.  We invite you to sing with us tomorrow in our 5th opera!

 

the score:

1. This Saturday, just before 1:00 pm, meet at the intersection of Howard & Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco.

2. At exactly 1:00 pm, proceed on foot to Ocean Beach, singing text found en route.

 

Notes:

a. As always, you are invited to sing and act only as feels right in the moment–with no previous planning. Costuming is up to you.

b. Refer to the map above for the opera route.

c. On Saturday, see http://twitter.com/tomcomitta for updates on the opera’s location.

’til tomorrow–

 

Pianissimo!,

SF Guerrilla Opera
