Opera in the Park


Sunday, July 24, 2016 at 8 p.m. | Garner Park | Free Admission


Opera in the Park has been postponed until tomorrow, Sunday, July 24, 2016 at 8pm.

The Prelude Dinner will also still take place at 6pm.


Opera in the Park, Madison Opera’s gift to the community, is a night like no other. In beautiful Garner Park, the stars come out in the sky, the light sticks glow in the audience, and singers from our mainstage season share their favorite opera and Broadway numbers. Now in its 15th year, it is quite literally a night like no other. Come join 15,000 of your neighbors for a Madison summer tradition.

Performed by the outstanding talents of the Madison Opera Chorus, the Madison Symphony Orchestra, and some of opera’s brightest stars, Opera in the Park is a FREE community event perfect for audiences of ALL ages!
