WAMU 88.5 : The Kojo Nnamdi Show

Opera in the Outfield

The Washington National Opera is headed to Nationals Park - via simulcast. For a sixth year, "Opera in the Outfield," will broadcast a live performance - this year, of Mozart's "The Magic Flute" - on the big screen at Washington’s ball park. Kojo talks with the opera’s artistic director about the free event and other efforts to make opera accessible to a wider and more diverse audience.
