It ain’t summer until the crazy lady sings, at least that’s the case this year. 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!
This is the beginning of summer, People! Besides the obligatory grilling and swimming pool openings, you might want to balance things out with a little culture, with The Taste around all weekend as an always-ready option. But on a serioius note, please save a space in your heart for those men and women who have gone to battle to keep us as free as we are. Their memory is the reason you have this Monday off.
With our July press deadline breathing down our necks (this morning!), we enlisted three M&M interns to share their take on some of this week’s events. Much gratitude to Kathryn Puskas, Emma Segrest and Katie Wenzel for their input. So, from a few of us to all of you, happy culture shopping and sampling.
SOS Art Cincinnati is seeking submissions for the 15th annual edition of “For A Better World,” a book of poems and art on the themes of peace and justice.
