Begin your evening at the opera with our pre-show talk, the Opera Prelude!
Warm up your opera experience with the pre-show talk! Opera Memphis' artistic team provides insights into the opera’s themes, music, and production. These informal talks will enhance your appreciation of all our operas and are free to all ticketholders.
TIME: 45-minutes before the opera start time printed on your ticket (For The Italian Girl in Algiers, the Pre-Show Talk will begin at 6:30 PM.)
At Germantown Performing Arts Center, the Opera Preludes take place in the theater.
At Playhouse on the Square, the Opera Preludes take place in the Lounge.
If you need to visit the box office for any reason on the evening of a performance, we suggest you do so before attending the Opera Prelude pre-show talk. The box office tends to be quite busy after the Talk has concluded.
