Some notes from around the arts and entertainment world.


--Indianapolis Opera will open its 2010/11 season with "The Mikado," a production that was canceled last season. It's set to run Oct. 15 and 17 with William Fabris (IO's "Pirates of Penzance") directing.

--The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra has added an Aug. 15 special event to its Symphony on the Prairie schedule. Garrison Keillor will host "A Prairie Home Companion: Summer Love" concert that will include appearances by singer/songwriter/fiddler Sara Watkins and sound-effects man Fred Newman. General public tickets go on sale May 10.

-On the community theater side, Carmel Repertory Theatre will be offering the local premiere of Jason Robert Brown's Broadway musical "13." Auditions for the all-teen show are in June with the production running in October.

--The Cleveland Symphony, which canceled an IU Bloomington visit due to a musicians' strike, has rescheduled. Look for the acclaimed orchestra to visit in January for a residency leading to a Jan. 25 concert.

Your thoughts?

  • Delighted
    That the Cleveland Orchestra is coming back.
  • Garrison Keillor
    Hi Lou - Just to clarify, the ISO's presentation of Garrison Keillor at Conner Prairie this summer is not tied to the traditional Symphony on the Prairie series. SEparate event, separate tickets, separate prices. Just same location.
  • mild correction
    As Jessica says, it's the Cleveland Orchestra, not the Cleveland Symphony, making it like the Philadelphia and Louisville Orchestras. A small thing to be sure, but not for those in the know.
