I'd love to be able to appreciate opera, but the truth is, I don't know a mezzo from a matzo. Large ladies decked-out in Flavor Flav helmets singing in some other language just doesn't draw me in. If only the opera could come to me ...
What luck! Opera Boston is starting an informal, opera cabaret and hosting performances in "non-traditional" venues. The first program by Opera Boston Underground, "Kurt Weill's World," will take place at Lizard Lounge Jan. 17. If that tickles your fancy, Opera Boston is presenting Weill's "The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny" at the Cutler Majestic Theatre Feb. 23-27.
