Opera in the Park is going on the road in 2016 and heading south... to one of the Bay Area's most dynamic cities. Festival Opera will partner with the City of San Ramon to present a family-friendly summer afternoon of fine music, picnic lunches, and a Community Fair featuring childrens' activities. And, of course, it's all still FREE.

Be sure to mark your calendar now for a late-afternoon/early evening concert of favorite arias and familiar pops. Bring your blanket and enjoy music al fresco as Festival Opera artists perform some of the world's finest music, live and in-person.
