Joe loves to spread the word about the thriving arts scene in Portland, and that's why today he's promoting a local organization that many Portlanders are probably unaware of. The Portland Opera Repertory Theater, or PORTopera, is a nonprofit arts organization that has brought many of the world's favorite operas to Portland. PORTopera is dedicated to producing creative, inspiring, and professional opera performances of artistic excellence. For its mainstage production for the company's 22nd year, PORTopera has selected Carmen, Bizet's famous tale of lust, revenge, and murder. Carmen will feature some of the finest singers in the country, along with a renowned director and conductor. Joe thinks you should check it out!
