Opera in the Park Welcome back... to one of Festival Opera's most popular summer programs — Opera in the Park — which makes its return to Walnut Creek's Civic Park on Sunday, June 11. 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 the stars of Pagliacci, tenor Alex Boyer and soprano Hope Briggs, perform some of the world's finest music with accompanist Chun Mei Wilson. Longtime Festival Opera favorite John Kendall Bailey 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 3:00 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 — as we welcome back Opera in the Park.
