A Tempo: The Princeton Festival Hopes to Expand Audiences Through 'Young Friends' Initiative

Jun 7, 2018

In an effort to expand its reach to new, particularly younger audiences, The Princeton Festival has announced a new "Young Friends of the Princeton Festival" program. This week on A Tempo (6/9 at 7 pm), host Rachel Katz will speak with CJ Ru, the Princeton Festival's director of operations, about this program, which includes discounted tickets on select performances  of the Festival's opera production of Puccini's Madama Butterfly, and a drink at intermission to those between the ages of 21 and 40.

Ru will also discuss some of the Festival's other community-focused events, including a panel discussion on cross-cultural challenges in opera, and other highlights of this year's season.
