Grab a picnic and a glass of wine, stake out your spot on the Great Lawn, and start your weekend off with a free, thrilling, behind-the-scenes exploration with HVSF artists, scholars, and industry experts.

These pre-show talks take place every Friday night during the summer season and are open to the public. No performance ticket or registration is required, though you are welcome to add Friday Night Prologue reservations to your Friday performance purchase. In case of inclement weather, Prologues are held under the HVSF Theater Tent.
