Medium: Print talks about the upcoming performances of Hercules vs Vampires and shares insight from AZ Opera President Joseph Specter and composer Patrick Morganelli. They talk about how this "marriage" of opera and a movie came to be, and how it is expected to attract new and younger audiences to come to opera.

I think it’s no secret that Arizona Opera, over the past few seasons and looking forward, has been thinking of the future of opera and how to expand the audience and preserve the art form.
