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.
Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” was performed in the San Basilio quarter of Rome after OperaCamion, a mobile stage, set up on a patch of grass.

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.
