Opera Reads Bookclub

Opera Reads Book Club
You are invited to join Piedmont Opera’s new book club, Opera Reads, for our inaugural season. Get to know our Fall opera’s title character, Mary Stuart, through our first Opera Reads selection, Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles, a best-selling historical novel by Margaret George. Click here for more info.
We’ll kick things off on September 7, 2019, by meeting for snacks and conversation at the Piedmont Opera house, before attending a presentation by the author herself at the Bookmarks Festival of Books & Authors.
As an Opera Reads member, you’ll receive invitations to events throughout the season, including a book discussion hosted at a private home on the evening of Wednesday, October 9. We’ll wrap up the season with a group dinner at a downtown restaurant before Piedmont Opera’s final performance of Donizetti’s Mary, Queen of Scots (Maria Stuarda) on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. Click here for more info.
Please RSVP for our kick-off event by Monday, September 2, as space is limited. For more information, please contact Director of Advancement & Community Engagement Jenny Scholl at 336.725.7101 or jscholl@piedmontopera.org.
