Welcome back... to one of Festival Opera's most popular summer programs — Opera in the Park — which returns to Walnut Creek's Civic Park on Sunday, June 24. And best of all, it's still FREE.
Mark your calendar now for a late-afternoon/early evening concert of favorite arias and ensembles. Bring a blanket and enjoy a family-friendly outing as opera stars, young artists and the spirited Festival Opera Chorus perform some of the world's finest music. Featured artists include soprano Kristin Clayton and baritone Zachary Gordin. Principal conductor Bryan Nies will conduct and guide the audience on a musical journey.
Civic Park is located in downtown Walnut Creek at the corner of Civic Drive and Broadway, next to the main library; free parking is available off Civic. The program begins at 5:00 p.m., so arrive early to stake out a good spot. Chairs, blankets, coolers, non-alcoholic beverages and food are all welcome, but please note that no alcohol or glass is permitted in city parks.
So, make plans to join Festival Opera for a delightful early-summer program of operatic favorites — and perhaps a surprise or two — as we welcome back Opera in the Park.
