Arts Preview: Opera on the Edge at Shadowbox Live

Jim Fischer

Opera? In English? In a bar? For just an hour? Opera Columbus' Opera on the Edge returns for a third season, presenting an abridged, English-language adaptation of Verdi's masterwork "La Traviata" ("The Fallen Woman"). The cast features young, emerging national talent and local performers, and is staged essentially in the midst of the audience, challenging the perception of what opera is and what it looks like. Did we mention tickets are $10?
