Bradley Fair, the leading shopping center in Wichita, once again hosts WGO’s annual gift to the community, Opera on the Lake. This year’s theme is “POPera: Simply Irresistible.” Bring a chair or blanket for a night of pop and operatic favorites in the tradition of WGO’s concert performances with Celtic Woman, Josh Groban, Placido Domingo, and the 10th Anniversary Gala with Samuel Ramey, Joyce DiDonato, and Alan Held. However Opera on the Lake this comes with a twist: a gala with stars in the sky and stars on the stage with the picturesque backdrop of the Lake and Island of Bradley Fair; an event and setting like nowhere else in the nation.
“POPera” will be a free to the public event, so feel free to bring a lawn chair or blanket and prepare for a wonderful evening under the Kansas sky. A limited number of Reserved Seating tickets are available for $35 each, which include a provided chair. Or, if you prefer to be wined and dined, the VIP Dinner and Performance Package is available, including a three-course dinner with exclusive seating for dinner and the performance on the patio at Newport Grill, all for $150 per person or a table of eight for $1,000, a portion of which is tax deductible.
