Culture FIX: May 22-28

We’re at that sweet spot in the calendar where it might not be summer officially, but you certainly can feel it: No more frost advisories. The May Festival wrapping up. Outdoor concert series sprouting throughout the area. And partying with 500,000 of your closest friends at the Taste of Cincinnati. Yep, we’re headed for summer – come what May.

Culture FIX: April 17-23

What a week. From Carole King to ceramics to fairy tales, take your pick from an eclectic collection of culture offerings.

Cincinnati Opera opens with works from 1835 (complete with “mad scene”) and 2021 this week, along with the debut of a new piano competition and the return of a newish chamber festival, while the 2022-23 theater season finally comes to a close. Happy summer!

Culture FIX: May 3-9

Ok, Winter. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. We are looking ahead to balmy, busy late spring days, such as the ones below. Am I right? Feast your senses…
