The War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco may look like an Old World theater on the outside, but on the inside, it is quite technologically advanced. After the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989, major damage was done to the opera house. Since the building would be receiving vast structural renovations as well as a seismic retrofit for protection from future earthquakes, technical improvements such as an up to date lighting system were added as well.
The War Memorial Opera House is also a part of the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. The San Francisco Opera is based here, as is the San Francisco Symphony orchestra. The San Francisco Ballet also performs at the War Memorial Opera House. During renovations, 3200 velvet seats, refreshment bars, and disabled access were added to the Opera House, making it a comfortable and elegant place to enjoy the arts.
