Outdoor Opera

The Washington National Opera season's started up again, bringing with it a ton of events aimed at filling seats with first-time operagoers. One is this concert at the Woodrow Wilson Plaza of selections from operas in the 2008-2009 season, including La Traviata, The Pearl Fishers, and Carmen. Even if this is the extent of your exposure to opera, you're sure to recognize something. The WNO also has a really great program offering tickets to people under 35 at deep discounts.

H Street Festival

Street fair season continues with the H Street Festival on Saturday, September 20. There's quite a range in attractions-from burlesque to a former Redskins cornerback-so your whole posse is bound to find something of interest. Hint for the non-Metrobus savvy- you can get on the X2 at Gallery Place under the big gate and it'll take you all the way down H Street. If you get there early grab a latte at lovely Sidamo, one of the most pleasant coffee shops in the city.

1200-1400 H St. NE
