Summertime on the Central Coast means Opera San Luis Obispo in Shell Beach with our annual outdoor Americana classic Broadway by the Sea! This year we proudly present The Best of Broadway: a stunning collaboration featuring a quintet of nationally acclaimed singers from Center Stage Opera (Los Angeles), accompanied by Maestro Brian Asher Alhadeff and members from the OperaSLO Grand Orchestra. Experience the OperaSLO debuts of sopranos Shira Renee Thomas and Katherine Washington, along with baritone Joe Dhanens and tenor Drew Schufman. Audience members will be thrilled to welcome back OperaSLO Resident Artist soprano Alba Franco-Cancél and tenor Dylan F. Thomas who was the hilarious peddler Ali Hakim in our recent May production of Oklahoma!

In perfect harmony with our musical selections, this Central Coast classic all happens at the renowned Chapman Estate — a gorgeous seaside manor and exclusive location offering some of the most breathtaking ocean views in California. Arrive early, picnic with friends, bid on silent auction treasures, stroll the gardens, observe plein air painters and marvel at the breathtaking views from this historic estate in Shell Beach. Ticket price includes complimentary wine tasting from Opolo.

Note: parking for this event is at Shell Beach Elementary School, located at 2100 Shell Beach Road. Complimentary shuttles will start at 12:30pm.
