Join us for the 17th year of a Madison summer tradition!
Opera in the Park has become the very definition of what Madison Opera means to our community. In beautiful Garner Park, the stars come out in the sky, the light sticks come out in the audience, and singers from our upcoming season share their favorite opera and musical theater numbers.
Opera in the Park 2018 stars sopranos Elizabeth Caballero and Brenda Rae; tenor John Lindsey; baritone Levi Hernandez; the Madison Opera Chorus, and the Madison Symphony Orchestra, all under the baton of Gary Thor Wedow. Repertoire will be announced in early summer.
Come discover what happens when our community comes together around beautiful performances, beautiful music, and a beautiful summer night.
Garner Park opens at 7am the day of the concert. Blankets, chairs, food and beverages are allowed.
