Camerata 2019-2020 Events
Camerata’s season events were designed with the young Opera Memphis patron in mind. Throughout the season we aim to host events that bring together opera lovers and novices—so whether you are an opera veteran or are thinking of coming to your very first opera, we have something for you. Our events are built around each of Opera Memphis’ mainstage productions and offer opportunities to socialize and network with other Memphians who share a passion for arts and opera.
