Opera Takes Over Nationals Park This Weekend

The Washington National Opera is presenting a free, live simulcast of its new production of Mozart's "The Magic Flute'' this weekend at Nationals Park.

The opera will be broadcast live Saturday from the Kennedy Center Opera House at 7 p.m. It's sung in English and features colorful sets and costumes designed by Japanese-American artist Jun Kaneko. Organizers say ``The Magic Flute'' is a perfect opera for the entire family.

This is the sixth year the company has offered ``Opera in the Outfield'' at Nationals Park. The event is free and draws thousands of people each year.

The ballpark opens for pre-show entertainment at 5 p.m. Saturday, including drumming demonstrations, face painting and costumes.

Seating in the outfield is first-come, first served. Free seating is also available in the stands.
