Network Night with The Twin Cities Business Peer Network

Make connections and explore empathy in Opera

Tuesday, January 28 at The Ordway Center for Performing Arts


Have you ever sat in airport and thought about the person sitting across from you? If you struck up a conversation, would you find you had something in common? Or what if through a simple, empathetic connection, you create a lasting impact on one or both of your lives.

Empathy can help build more effective personal and professional relationships and is a core theme of MN Opera’s new production of Flight. In this touching and deeply human comedy, eight complete strangers find they have more in common than they think when they are stranded overnight at an airport and soon realize they need each other to get to their destinations.

In an inaugural partnership between The TCBPN and MN Opera, we hope you can join us for a unique networking event that goes behind the scenes where you can make connections with other business and community leaders while exploring the intersection of empathy and opera.


Tickets for this event are $30 and include a private pre-show networking reception with light dinner and insights by the show’s director and admission to the show right after the reception. RSVP below or call MN Opera Patron Services at 612-333-6669 (M-Th: 10:00am-5:00pm). Space is limited. Register and join us!
