Final Battle for Love is happening this week in Chicago! Shows take place January 19-22 at the West Stage of the Raven Theater. Last week Thompson Street Opera Company Executive Director Claire DiVisio sat down with Matthan Black as his guest for Doing the Work, a podcast about opera and particularly the thriving Chicago scene. They talked extensively about the genesis of Thompson Street and Claire’s commitment to producing new works. Toward the end, they talk about the upcoming production of Final Battle. It’s a super fun conversation and great to hear a producer’s perspective on the show. Give the whole thing a listen because Claire is inspiring. The conversation turns to FBL at about the 48 minute mark.
