2018 - 2019 Opera on the Couch

Steven Goldberg, MD and Milton Schaefer, PhD, Co-Chairs

This marks the twelfth consecutive season of OPERA ON THE COUCH, a joint endeavor of SFCP and the San Francisco Opera. Opera on the Couch provides a forum where psychoanalytic insights deepen the meaning and experience of opera. Discussions occur immediately after productions where the immediate visceral experience of music, drama and spectacle enliven a fuller and deeper understanding of the emotional and psychological aspects of the work.

We invite all member of SFCP to attend both the opera and the discussion or just the opera on the couch discussion. All performances begin at 2:00 PM and the discussions begin about 20 minutes after the final curtain. We look forward to seeing you there.
