LET'S GET CULTURED AT MADISON OPERA'S "OPERA IN THE PARK"

Opera in the Park, Madison Opera's gift to the community, is a night like no other. The stars appear in the sky over Garner Park, the light sticks glow in the audience, and singers from our upcoming season take the stage to share their favorite arias and ensembles from opera and Broadway. This free concert is the perfect way to spend a summer evening.

THE SETTING - This event provides an oportunity to enjoy beautiful music and your FABULOUS Friends in an open air amphitheater environment. Free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations are needed. Garner Park opens at 7 AM on the day of the concert, and blankets, chairs, food and beverages are allowed. For more information, visit madisonopera.org.

The event starts at 8:00. Let's meet at 6:00 for a pre-event picnic, followed by a wonderful free concert under the stars!  Prepare to have to park some distance from the event in the neighborhood surrounding Garner Park, especially if you are a late arrival, so car-pooling is recommended.

I will be getting there early in the morning and saving space for our group.  I will aim to be near the center, about the middle of the hill.  Will update if the spot changes, so watch for more information on the event day.  I will have coolers on site, and will provde a fresh fruit salad, cheese, and crackers for our group.  Bring your own main dish and someting to share if you wish.  You can bring wine and other beverages.  Camp / lawn chairs and blankets are permitted, and don't forget the bug spray!

Here's the view of the stage from our spot. Look for us uphill from the walkway, just right of center, about halfway up the hill.  Look for the three balloons - white, blue and green!

If you can't find us, call me on my cell:[masked]-3716.  See you tonight!

    Hi all - I'll be there but won't make a reservation. My son (pictured) is singing in the children's chorus. Didn't think kids would be in "Dead Man Walking" - but it is a children's group of which the nun was in charge. His take: "it's not too opera-y" so for those of you who enjoy contemporary opera, this might be a good choice. Have fun everyone!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
