Bayview Opera House reopens after redo


San Francisco officials will celebrate the reopening of the Bayview Opera House Wednesday evening following a $5.7 million renovation.

The renovation, led by the San Francisco Arts Commission, redesigned the plaza outside the building at 4705 Third St. to create an outdoor theater and a landscaped area for children’s activities and community events.

It also expanded the lobby, stabilized the historic balcony and improved accessibility for the disabled.

Work began on the opera house, a nationally registered historic landmark built in 1888, in March 2014.

Mayor Ed Lee, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Supervisor Malia Cohen and other city officials are expected to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The first scheduled event at the newly reopened opera house is a free Circus Festival scheduled for Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
