Bill Doolittle wrote a nifty piece about the Opera for the LEO's Arts & Entertainment guide. He elaborated on the amount of time and effort Kentucky Opera puts in to educating our patrons and the public at large. You can read it here.
Another educational element not discussed in Doolittle's story involve our artists. Each of them, before they arrive for reharsals, must know their parts. Some artists go too far to learn their roles, like Michael Mayes who will portray "the other man" in I PAGLIACCI.
