OPERA IN THE OZARKS
7:30 p.m. Inspiration Point, Eureka Springs. $20-$25.

It's mid-June now, which means it's time once again for Opera in the Ozarks at Inspiration Point. The program is in its 62nd year of showcasing budding performers from all over and training talent that has gone on to perform on every major opera stage in the world.

My dad is a big fan of the outdoor series. "How many chances do you get to go to the opera wearing jeans and short sleeves?" he asked. Well, if you live in Carroll County you'll get several every year. But Opera in the Ozarks is a major draw for opera buffs from all over the region.

This year's slate kicks off Friday with Mozart's "The Magic Flute," continues Saturday with Stephen Sondheim's Broadway hit "A Little Night Music" and Tuesday with Puccini's "La Boheme." The season runs through July 20. Here's the rest of the schedule.
