San Francisco Opera Man!

Live From Maiden Lane
ROBERT CLOSE
San Francisco's Own Tenor Of Maiden Lane 
 

Robert Close is an Italian Opera tenor. He is a native San Franciscan who has sung here in the City for 25 years. He performed in the San Francisco production of Phantom of the Opera from 1993 until 1999.  Robert travels all over the U.S., Canada and Mexico, But when he is home in his beloved San Francisco, You'll be likely to find him bringing music to the downtown from his traditional "stage" in Maiden Lane.

Opera singer Robert Close is a downtown mainstay that set up shop at the end of Maiden Lane, a pedestrian walkway at the edge of Union Square. Close began singing on the street in 1998, at the end of a six-year stint with "Phantom of the Opera."   Wanting to continue to share his talents with his beloved San Francisco,  Mr. Close began singing in public both to bring beautiful music to the downtown and to market his services to events who would like to have this wonderful music at their private event. He chose his spot on Maiden Lane for its acoustics, which allow him to project his powerful tenor up to four blocks away and have, in the years he has performed there on weekend days, become a special and integral part of the San Francisco experience.


It is hard to imagine a San Francisco without the strong, sweeping grace of his music filling the air in Union Square. Close is truly a Bay Area Treasure.

The Duo... Opera singers Robert Close and Litz Plummer are downtown mainstays that set up shop at the end of Maiden Lane, a pedestrian walkway at the edge of Union Square. Close began singing on the street in 1998, at the end of a six-year stint with "Phantom of the Opera." Despondent and frustrated that his talents were not being exercised on more challenging material, Close began singing on the streets for the adulation and dollars of bystanders. He chose his spot on Maiden Lane for its acoustics, which allow him to project his powerful tenor up to four blocks away. 
 
In search of work after moving to San Francisco three years ago from North Carolina, Plummer found Close by following his voice. She offered her services as a soprano, and the two have been singing together since.
 
The Pair Have most recently been seen starring on America's Got Talent.
