7:00pm / Join us for a conversation with Eric Einhorn and Rachel J. Peters. 

On Site Opera presents an evening of operatic comedy and tragedy featuring international star Stephanie Blythe. In Lesson Plan, Blythe stars as an acclaimed opera diva who thinks she will be teaching a master class with trained singers at a prestigious conservatory. Instead, due to a scheduling faux pas, she takes the stage for a group of liberal arts students at a community college — a group with little singing experience or interest in what the great diva has in mind. Intercepted by an overwhelmed school administrator (Laquita Mitchell) with a side hustle as an amateur choir director, the pair clash over teaching technique, singing, and the true meaning of art. In the second half of the program, Blythe reprises her acclaimed tenor debut in the role of Don José in excerpts from Bizet’s Carmen, joined by Mitchell and Maya Lahyani for a thrilling program of arias and duets from this timeless opera arranged for two piano accompaniment. 

For those who prefer a more casual concert environment, Garden Listening tickets are $20, and are free for Members and children under 18 years old. Listen to the concert broadcast onto Friends Field (audio only) while enjoying a picnic, admiring a starry sky, or relaxing with the family. We recommend you bring your own seating for Garden Listening.
