Opera Novice

First-time opera-goer? Timid about taking the plunge? Wondering if you'd like it? Just want more insight into opera? Then come to the Madison Opera Center for a short, fun, and informative evening about the artform that is opera. Learn about what goes into putting on a production (including some legendary disaster stories), enjoy performance selections, and have the chance to ask questions. It's the perfect jump-start for the opera curious.

Opera Novice is FREE and open to the public, but reservations are requested so we can guarantee everyone gets a chair. All Opera Novice events take place at the Madison Opera Center, 335 W. Mifflin Street, Madison.
