When one of the city's most beloved and critically-acclaimed opera companies, Opera Boston, closed up shop at the end of 2011, opera lovers across the city were shocked and distraught. But now, the music is back.

The brand new Odyssey Opera is making its debut this weekend with a performance of Wagner's Rienzi. It's the focus of this week's ARTery segment, where we talk to artists and critics around the city about what's exciting them.

Guest

Graham Wright, founder and host of Opus Affair.

The Boston Globe, "While Odyssey Opera will be much smaller than its predecessor, it will be spearheaded by two familiar faces. Gil Rose, Opera Boston’s artistic director, will be the general and artistic director, and Randolph Fuller, the mercurial millionaire and Opera Boston cofounder, will be its only named funder."

This segment aired on September 12, 2013.
