In September 2013, Opera Memphis will present 30 Days of Opera — a month-long program aimed at breaking down the perceived barriers that prevent many people from experiencing the power of opera.
Over the course of 30 consecutive days, we will offer over 50 FREE public performances at more than 40 different locations, all across the Memphis region. These events will introduce opera into the daily routines of local residents — at farmers markets, restaurants, schools -- and even high-traffic street corners. In the process, we will create a trail of breadcrumbs that leads to the opera house. In this, the second year of the program, we will expand our roster of singers, which will significantly increase the number of free performances we can deliver.
We've already lined up support from the NEA, OPERA America, Autozone, and others...but we're missing one CRITICALLY IMPORTANT FUNDER: The AWESOME FOUNDATION! Without your support, we won't be able to make this festival truly AWESOME!
