WRR101 Focus on the Arts: Another Dallas Opera world premiere by the ‘Dream Team’

“For an opera that sounds really challenging to present, they’ve done some wonderful creative opportunities in what you’re going to see visually… but it’s also just a story of great determination and inspiration,” explains Ian Derrer, The Dallas Opera’s Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO, describing the creative team behind The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Derrer and baritone Lucas Meachem join WRR’s Amy Bishop to share details about the upcoming world premiere of the new opera, based on a remarkable true story.
