Opera In the Pub

Opera Boston opens its production of 'The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny' tonight. The Weill/Brecht opera is staged in a concert hall, as usual, but the company recently took a sampler of the show's songs on the road to some unconventional places.

The venue change is part of a new marketing strategy to attract younger audiences to full-scale operas. WBUR's Andrea Shea checks out Opera Boston's foray into a rock club.

The audio for this story will be available on WBUR's web site after 10 a.m. on Friday.

This program aired on February 23, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
