On a steamy evening in late June, Lisa Scen, a retired cook of inscrutable age, donned a simple beige dress and glittery earrings and prepared to go to her first night at the opera.
Actually, the opera came to her.
The OperaCamion, a mobile stage, with its cast and crew, set up in a shabby square of scorched, uncut grass in the outlying San Basilio quarter of Rome, where Ms. Scen has lived for the past 30 years. It was a free, one-night performance of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni.” Full story.
