In past years, when the Nationals did not have the best record in baseball, Opera in the Outfield was about the most exciting thing going on in September on the field at Nationals Park. But with the Nats looking more and more like a playoff lock, this year’s Opera in the Outfield is just one more good reason to spend an evening at the ballpark.
Today, the Washington National Opera announced new details for this year’s simulcast of “Don Giovanni,” the tale of a self-important philanderer on the brink of a serious smackdown by karma (or its 17th-century Spanish equivalent).
This year, Brightest Young Things is co-hosting the free event, and there will be a plethora of pregame activities, including stage-fighting demos, flamenco dancing by Furia Flamenca and a pre-party in the Stars & Stripes Club starting at 5 p.m.
