The events listed below are a small selection of upcoming events that may be of interest to Janeites. These events are not organized by JASNA or its Regions.
Opera: Mansfield Park (Virtual)
Opera Modesto is pleased to offer viewings of its production of Mansfield Park. Johnathan Dove's adaptation was the centerpiece of the first-ever Modesto JaneCon, and the world premiere of the fully orchestrated opera. What could be more operatic than this beloved novel?
