The weekend is only one day away. What are you going to do with it?
- Where/When: The show starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Nationals Park, 1500 South Capitol St. SE, Washington.
- Why Go: You'd have to get reasonably dressed up to go to the Kennedy Center, but the opera is casual at Nationals Park!

- Pricing: Free!
