Here's What Makes Opera Idaho's Upcoming Show So Different

Opera Idaho - Facebook

Opera Idaho has been a Gem State staple for close to 50 years, but they are about to do something they never have before: perform a Frederick Handel production. "Acis & Galatea" will be on stage this November and features Emmy Award Winner Karim Sulayman. Idaho Matters talks with the tenor and conductor Robert Franz about what makes this opera unique.
