Kentucky Opera’s Marriage of Figaro Opens With No Orchestra

by Laura Ellis on November 19, 2011

Courier-Journal arts reporter Elizabeth Kramer joined us on Friday’s State of the News with updates on the Louisville Orchestra labor dispute, and what the opera will be like with reduced instrumentation.
