Opera Today goes from coast-to-coast to find opera companies that are creating innovating way to open peoples eyes to the opera. Arizona Opera was highlighted in this article for their world-premier production of the first Western opera, Riders of the Purple Sage.

"After spending an afternoon in the Zane Grey Museum near Payson, Arizona, I picked up a copy of Riders of the Purple Sage, one of the first American Western novels ever written. I quickly became immersed in the book, discovering an evocative and rhythmic story with characters who 'sang' from the first page."
