Picnic at the Opera

LIAA's UpNorth Media Center produces Michigan's only live TV variety show to benefit an iconic piece of Traverse City.

Picnic at the Opera, Michigan’s only live TV variety show, is a collaboration between LIAA’s UpNorth Media Center and the iconic 123-year-old City Opera House, a nonprofit performing arts venue in the heart of downtown Traverse City, Michigan. The annual six-week series is the first fundraiser of each year for the Opera House, and it provides an exciting event for Media Center staff and volunteers to practice their craft.

Performed on the main stage before a live studio audience, the event is aired live to 110,000 cable subscribers in northern Michigan and streamed to the world on www.upnorthmedia.org
