This week, we're joined by Lyndsay Byers, from Dramatic Crossroads. The concert presents what the group calls "a new spin on what you think of as opera." The program blends opera and classical music, with musical theatre, and contemporary music performed in an operatic style. The intent is to show the parallels between opera and musical genres, and to make opera more accessible to concert-goers.
"Hip-hOpera" will be presented Saturday night at 6:30 at t
he Contemporary Art Center in downtown Peoria.
