Opera has been going more high tech in recent years to create an immersive experience and bring in new audiences. The Cleveland Orchestra next week stages an intricate production of "Pelléas and Mélisande."

For this week’s Shuffle, Plain Dealer classical music critic Zach Lewis says the orchestra is taking a much different approach to opera:

The Cleveland Orchestra lifts the baton this weekend on the finale of a summer-long cultural collaboration.

“The Cleveland Orchestra at Home in Hough” has brought the inner-city neighborhood a series of workshops, summer camps and classical concerts. In today’s State of the Arts, WKSU’s Vivian Goodman reports that the neighborhood residency includes Hough’s own talented residents.

The Cleveland Orchestra has announced its "neighborhood residency" for this year, in the Hough neighborhood on Cleveland's east side.

The orchestra will spend much of the summer in Hough, an inner-city neighborhood on Cleveland's east side that is slowly rebuilding. It's also home to the Cleveland Indians' former ballpark, League Park.

Three art forms come together tonight at Severance Hall.  The Cleveland Orchestra is joining forces with opera stars and the Joffrey Ballet for a unique double-bill titled “Bartok on Stage.”

WKSU’s Vivian Goodman reports on the world premiere production.

Dancers, singers and musicians will collaborate in Cleveland for four concerts beginning tonight and running through the weekend.

Two works by the 20th Century Hungarian composer Bela Bartok will be performed.
