If you're casting about with nothing to do tomorrow night, consider catching the tail end of the mighty whaling tale, Moby-Dick, at the San Francisco Opera. Friday's performance is the end of the run of the production based on Herman Melville's classic novel. The staging and set design are impressive, and the composer, Jake Heggie, lives in Noe Valley. And maybe best of all, you needn't have liked, or even read, the massive book to get wrapped up in the story and the opera. Learn more in our article about Moby Dick the opera.
