Opera is coming to the inner city. Thanks to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Washington National Opera, a live production of La Boheme
will be simulcast in select cities, including Memphis. Scheduled for 1 p.m. on September 23rd at the University of Memphis' Harris Concert Hall, the show is free and open to the public.
By bringing the opera to urban communities, HUD seeks to shatter economic and geographical barriers that prohibit residents from benefiting from the musical experience.
