Description:
20c Open Air Theatre. Wolf Trap Farm Park, Vienna, Virginia 1982.

Wolf Trap Farm is the only National Park dedicated exclusively to the performing arts. Located in Vienna, Virginia, Wolf Trap Farm consists of two separate facilities, the Barns and the Filene Center. These facilities are home to various musical performances, such as the Wolf Trap Opera Company. Wolf Trap Farm became a national park in 1966; it held its first season in 1971.

The scenery at Wolf Trap Farm is as impressive as the performances. The 130 rolling acres are home to a large variety of wildlife as well as an abundance of natural resources.
