Annual Events
Take a tour through our listing of the Best & Most Well-liked Annual Events that take place in and around Nashville every year in the month of December.

12/5-12/7 Romulus Hunt

Just say the name Carly Simon and beloved songs such as “That’s the way I’ve always heard it should be” and “You’re so vain” immediately spring to mind. In 1993, Carly Simon took her gift of melody and her fearless examination of love and relationships, and created this opera, Romulus Hunt. At the time of the opera’s premiere, it was heralded as “one of the most important American operas since Porgy and Bess”. We invite you to join Nashville Opera as Carly Simon takes us on the poignant and heartfelt journey of a loving, yet fractured family as they search for healing, reconciliation and redemption.

Father of the Bride

Ongoing Event
Mr. Banks has just learned that one of the young men he has seen occasionally about the house is about to become his son-in-law. His daughter, Kay, announced the engagement out of nowhere. Mrs. Banks and her sons are happy, but Mr. Banks is in a dither. Buckly, the groom-to-be, and Kay don't want a "big" wedding, just a simple affair with a few friends. Soon, however, that idea is out. Then the trouble really begins. Directed by Michael Rex. December 5 - 21
