Opera — it’s not just for the Kennedy Center.

This Sunday, the Washington Nationals have teamed up with the Washington National Opera to host the third-annual Target Free Opera in the Outfield live from Nationals Park with a simulcast of Verdi’s dramatic opera “A Masked Ball (Un Ballo in Maschera).”

The show begins at 2:00 p.m. and gates open at noon.

Admission is free and free tickets are available pending a reservation made online with the Washington National Opera. All reservations for seating must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15 for the Sunday event.

Otherwise, guests may show up on the day of the event to enjoy an afternoon at the opera from a seat on the Nationals Park outfield grass.
