Where Every Family Matters

Opera & Stargazing June 2

Kids and parents will love Opera on the Mountain at Dyer Observatory!

It’s a summer time rite of passage. The Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory once again hosts “Opera on the Mountain” on Saturday, June 2.  The family-friendly concert lets you enjoy Nashville Opera performances in the warmth of an early June night. Families can bring a picnic and even stargaze using the grand telescope. Opera on the Mountain is designed to expose opera to fans as well as new fans.
    It’s important to get your tickets soon because the event always sells out — approximately 200 tickets. There’s seating under a covered area as well as tables. Many families come and sit on the grass with their picnic dinners. Individual performance pieces have not been announced yet, but the Nashville Opera likes to do popular pieces for its friendly audience, often including Broadway standards.
