20181106_ITA_Pygmalion.jpg

This week on Inside the Arts, Rameau's Pygmalion continues the season for the New Orleans Opera Association. Art comes to life in this French Baroque opera. Artistic director Robert Lyall joins us for a chat.

Then, Big Easy Award-winning Mélange Dance Company premieres its newest production, La Résistance. It is a tribute to grassroots movements that have brought about change in this country. We'll hear from executive director Alexa Lambert and artistic director Monica Ordoñez.

And, we'll take a walk on the wild side as we venture to A Studio in the Woods on the lower coast of Algiers for the 8th annual FORESTival. We'll talk with managing director Ama Rogan and artist John Kleinschmidt.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m., and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
