More about War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco
In 1989, the powerful Loma Prieta earthquake that shook the Bay Area caused major damage to the Opera House. The architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and the theatrical consulting firm of Auerbach and Associates were retained in 1992 to oversee the building's technical renovation and a seismic retrofit. At this time additional private donations were raised for extensive technical improvements. These include:
State of the art lighting system - which at the time, made it one of the most extensive and sophisticated systems in the world
Replacement of chambers for a never-installed organ with modern restrooms, sorely needed since the original construction. The organ is not needed with the completion of the nearby Davies Symphony Hall.
An extension behind the main stage for assembly and storage of sets, which allow a three opera cycle to be performed on successive nights.
A production of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, with the San Francisco Ballet, was taped there, is now available on DVD, and was scheduled to be telecast by PBS on December 17, 2008
