Opera in the Park (coming up on July 16th!) makes a great introduction to opera for families with children of all ages. The relaxed outdoor atmosphere combined with a program that offers a dose of recognizable opera hits all help to make this one of Madison Opera’s most accessible and exciting events of the year. The price point of $0 also doesn’t hurt!
New this year is something even more enticing for the young ones: we’re told that Cinderella is making an appearance in Garner Park! Along the main path off of Rosa Road, keep an eye out for the Isthmus Parents booth, where children and parents are invited to stop and take a picture with Cinderella. The maid-turned-princess is making an early stop in Madison before she stars in Rossini’s opera in Overture Hall next April.
Cool down in the pool and warm up your vocal chords
In anticipation of Opera in the Park that night, the Goodman Pool is hosting “Opera in the Pool” from 1 to 3 PM on Saturday, July 16th. Sing along to your favorite tunes while enjoying a dip in the pool as all swimmers have a chance with the Goodman’s karaoke machine.
