The Lauren + Mark Digital Concert Event is part of Austin Opera’s Sarah and Ernest Butler Performance Series.
This special film event, produced by Austin Opera and local media firm Subvrsive, captures sweet moments of musical bliss between married duo (and proud central Texans) soprano Lauren Snouffer and baritone Mark Diamond alongside pianist Nyle Matsuoka.
From the comfort of your vehicle at the Drive-in, watch as the film opens on Lauren & Mark pedaling past landmarks and down the streets of our beloved Austin. Then, the Long Center’s Rollins Theater is brought to life on the big screen with heartwarming music by Mozart, Rossini, and more – including selections chosen by you! – woven between exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews hosted by General Director and CEO Annie Burridge.
You won’t want to miss this uplifting love letter to you, our community, and the city we call home.
