Opera Talks, Previews, and More

Pre-Opera Talks

Join General Director Kathryn Smith one hour prior to all Madison Opera performances for an entertaining and informative talk about the opera and its composer. Insightful for newcomers and longtime opera-goers alike, this half-hour talk will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the opera, right before the curtain goes up.

Pre-opera talks are held in the Wisconsin Studio on the 3rd floor of the Overture Center for the Arts.

Post-Opera Q&A
You've seen the opera and loved it.  But are you perhaps wondering about...?  Join General Director Kathryn Smith in the Wisconsin Studio immediately after the performances of Florencia en el Amazonas to ask questions about what you've just seen.
