Opera Philadelphia and the Bearded Ladies Cabaret

While the Philadelphia Orchestra has been futzing around with live accompaniments of <em>Star Trek Into Darkness</em> and <em>Gladiator</em> and performing with a Beatles tribute band (ugh), Opera Philadelphia is figuring out how to get a new audience interested in opera without sacrificing its credibility and self-respect. The company has teamed up with the gender-bending Bearded Ladies Cabaret on <em>Andy: A Popera,</em> an opera based on the life of Andy Warhol. We've been following this important work-in-progress closely (there were staged previews in May and July) and look forward to its 2015 debut.
