There's just something about friends, a summer picnic and live Opera music that seems soooo right. This summer we have five opportunities to capture that perfect ambiance with Summer Recital Series performances by the world renowned Metropolitan Opera. If you've never been to the Opera and are not quite sure it's your cup of tea, this is definitely for you. Concerts like these are all about exposing us to the unfamiliar in the hopes of generating some new fans. Most of the concerts are on Friday nights making them a fitting vehicle for easing into the weekend after a long work week.

All of the performances are free.
