Tired of seeing baseball at Nationals Park
? How about La Traviata
? On Sept. 13 at 7 pm the Washington National Opera is offering "Opera in the Outfield
," a simulcast from the Kennedy Center of their new production of Verdi's classic opera on the big HD screen, with seating being allowed in the outfield. It's free and open to the public. (Choruses of "Kill the Wabbit
" may be discouraged.) UPDATE:
Here's the Post piece
on the simulcast, which used to be held on the Mall. It will cost the Washington Opera about $300,000.
