Balboa Starlite

San Diego, CA

from Wikipedia

The Starlight Bowl is an amphitheater located in Balboa Park in San Diego, California.
It was constructed for the 19351936 California Pacific International Exposition and seats 4,300.
It was originally named the Ford Bowl because the automobile manufacturer sponsored outdoor concerts
at the venue during the exposition by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the San Francisco Symphony, and other performers.

Until 2011 Starlight Bowl was the outdoor home of the San Diego Civic Light Opera, also called Starlight Musical Theatre,
which presented several Broadway musicals each summer. The Civic Light Opera company was founded in 1945.
It was one of the oldest musical theatre companies in the United States.

A new Non-Profit called Save Starlight was founded in 2016 to restore the bowl. Their mission is to restore the bowl
as a new platform for a multi media , multi cultural event space.

  • Anything Goes / 1957
