This week on Inside the Arts… the New Orleans Opera Association kicks off its season with Verdi’s La Traviata. We talk with the singers of this score of love and sacrifice.

Then, a woodsy adventure takes us to lower Algiers coast  for a celebration of nature and art. FORESTival swings into gear.
 
And, we round out with Marco Marconi. The acclaimed Italian jazz pianist makes his New Orleans debut at Café Istanbul.
