Opera Huntsville and Madison Visionary Partners bring free opera back to Home Place Park
MADISON – Opera Huntsville and Madison Visionary Partners (MVP) will present Opera in the Park, a free performance at Home Place Park, on Tuesday September 19 at 7 p.m. The park is located at 100 Shorter Street in Madison.
Grab a chair or blanket and enjoy iconic opera arias and musical theater favorites in a familyfriendly atmosphere in Madison’s downtown park. Parking will be located at the Madison City Schools stadium.
“Opera Huntsville wants to share our love of opera across North Alabama,” said Kenisha Hill Phillips, General Manager of Opera Huntsville. “Opera Bytes started as a digital project and has since transitioned to mostly in-person performances. We’ve performed all over Huntsville, so it’s time to perform in other cities in North AL. We’re especially grateful to MVP for this collaboration. Madison, here we come!”
This event is made possible by a 2023 Community Impact Grant from Madison Visionary Partners.
“Madison Visionary Partners is excited to bring this event back to Madison,” said Melanie Thornton, Executive Director of MVP. “One of the things that is integral to MVP’s success as a nonprofit is collaborative partnerships. We support events in Madison that not only enhance the quality of life, but build community engagement through the arts.”
As part of the grant, Opera Huntsville has two more performances planned in Madison in the coming months, including one at the Madison Public Library on November 4.
