The Nashville Opera Guild is offering a 9-day trip to Venice, Verona, Lucca and Rome the first two weeks in August, 2017!  It will be in the summer so that we can attend the outdoor opera festivals in these fabulous places!  It is too early to list the operas we will see or the exact trip dates, however, you can see the proposed itinerary below.  The minute the 2017 performance schedules are out, we will get tickets for 20 lucky folks to join us and send out a detailed flyer on the trip!

If you are interested, please call or e-mail Helen Brown at 615-383-5079 or
