About the Events


The magic of Mozart's fun and zany operas comes to life this fall in the gardens of The Dixon! Your whole family will enjoy operatic excerpts from classics such as The Magic Flute as you wander the grounds with characters from the stories interacting with you. Activities and games are interspersed with performances to create a hands-on approach to opera even the youngest members of your family will enjoy! Be sure to wear your messy, playground clothes! This is a FREE EVENT.

With a wildly successful first run during Midtown Opera Festival 2019, Opera Goes to Broadway returns for a delightful sequel at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens. Featuring pieces from your favorite Broadway shows sung by your favorite Opera Memphis artists, these performances are perfect for your evening out!

Join Opera Memphis and IRIS Orchestra for a very special concert featuring the 2019-20 Handorf Company Artists, Tahanee Aluwihare and Jake Stamatis, and the 2019-20 Iris Artist Fellows, Carrington Trueheart and Amaro Dubois. Hear Words + Music as these four artists perform for you their favorite pieces in the elegant setting of the Dixon Estate.
