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

For the last 61 years, Opera in the Ozarks at Inspiration Point has served as both petri dish and launching pad for musical theater performers from all around. After an intensive four-week rehearsal, the students perform in fully staged productions of classic and contemporary operas. The company kicks off this season with "Die Fledermaus" ("The Bat"), an operetta composed by Johann Strauss II to a German libretto by Karl Haffner and Richard Genee. The opera, which will be sung in English, runs through July 21. On June 25, Opera in the Ozarks debuts its production, sung in Italian, of Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro," which will run through July 20. Mark Adamo's "Little Women" is adapted from Louisa May Alcott's classic novel of a young woman's understandable but doomed struggle to prevent life from taking her beloved sisters away from her. The production debuts June 28 and runs through the season's final performance on July 22. For more details, go to opera.org.
