The Music Concourse

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco

Golden Gate Park’s Music Concourse, originally constructed as the Grand Court for the Midwinter Fair of 1894, becomes Rome on Election Day. This vibrant civic space perfectly transforms into the hustling, bustling Circus that is the city under Caesar. Most often recognized as the promenade between the de Young and the Academy of Science, the space is an attraction in its own right with its Temple of Music, pollarded Wych Elms, and grand Rideout Fountain. Processing through the space, the performance will utilize the entire length of the Music Concourse. Our final act, the horror of war viewed from inside a medical tent, plays in the iron-gated pedestrian tunnel as the ghosts of the dead haunt the few left living.
