Urban Arias, the innovative Washington opera company that focuses on the new and the short, performs two Tom Cipullo operas at the Atlas Performing Arts Center (1333 H Street NE, Washington, DC) on April 2, 3, 8, and 9. Both works focus on famous 20th-century figures, and their lives before and during World War II. Classical WETA morning host David Ginder chats with Urban Arias' General Director Robert Wood about After Life (focusing on Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein) and Josephine (in its world premiere, about Josephine Baker), about Tom Cipullo's appealing music, and about how opera on a small scale is as compelling as grand opera.
