It ain't over 'till the -- well, that's just insulting. Let's just say the SF Opera closes out Stern Grove's summer season with their usual impeccable line-up. Headliner Sylvia McNair has performed with the big names, including The Met, Chicago Lyric Opera, the Salzburg Festival, the New York Philharmonic, and the Philharmonics of Vienna and Berlin. She's joined by other great voices singing works of Leonard Bernstein and those who influenced him -- including Gershwin, Copland, and Kern. Pack a picnic, leave plenty of time for parking, and bid farewell to the height of summer. As Bernstein once wrote, "It must be so."
