Opera lovers of Arkansas, one of your favorite seasons has rolled around once more: Opera in the Ozarks. Situated at the stunning Inspiration Point near Eureka Springs, Opera in the Ozarks is an annual intensive month-long training program for aspiring opera professionals that culminates with a month of performances of some of the most beloved works in the world.

There are typically three different productions each season. For 2013, audiences can enjoy Gaetano Donizetti's "The Elixir of Love," one of the most-performed operas ever written; "Madama Butterfly," Puccini's tale of love and betrayal, and Gilbert and Sullivan's comic classic "The Pirates of Penzance."

The season kicks off Friday with "Madama Butterfly" and continues this week with "The Pirates of Penzance" on Saturday and "Elixir of Love" on Tuesday. The season runs through July 19. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. at Inspiration Point, with one-time performances of each opera at Bentonville's Arend Arts Center on June 30, July 7 and July 14.
