About A Victorian Holiday
t's that time of year for merriment and holiday traditions! Join Opera Memphis for the newest and fastest growing holiday tradition in Memphis: A Victorian Holiday. Get swept back to a time of petticoats, top hats, and corsets with our interactive holiday experience. You'll wander the historic residence and galleries of the Dixon Gallery & Gardens while 19th-century artists give operatic performances, carolers sing through the halls, residents teach you the latest dance styles, the lively maids entertain you with games and activities, and you are engaged in the art of conversation over a cup of wassail.
This three-hour long party will have multiple events and performances happening simultaneously, and guests are welcome to come and go as they please. Want to experience everything happening during the evening? Consider returning for a second time!
For those who have younger arts patrons, join us for our exclusive Family Night on December 14 featuring kid-friendly activities, an earlier start time, $10 kids tickets, and Family Packs.
Guests are invited (but not required) to dress in their best Victorian outfits for an even more immersive experience! Not sure what's in your closet that could work? Watch this great tutorial by Opera Memphis Costume Designer Sona Peric for ideas and inspiration: CLICK HERE.
DOORS WILL OPEN AT THE BEGINNING LISTED TIMES (7PM & 6PM). Please do not plan on arriving any earlier.
