San Francisco’s acclaimed Merola Opera Program, one of the most prestigious and selective opera training programs in the world, offers audiences a look at the opera stars of tomorrow. The program’s 61st season continues with a lively, fully-staged production of The Rake’s Progress. Based loosely on the eponymous eight paintings and engravings by William Hogarth (1733-1735), Stravinsky’s dramatic opera follows the decline and fall of a profligate heirwho makes a devil’s bargain with Nick Shadow, abandoning life in the country and his tender fiancée for the wicked temptations of London.
