A modern opera about the infamous 1919 White Sox fixing the World Series sounds outside the strikezone for opera fans, but that’s exactly why the MN Opera commissioned the new production The Fix, to swing for the fences. Anyway. We’ve been hearing good things about the English-language score and overall show from folks who’ve attended, and even the reviews that haven’t said the adventure is a home run have been full of kind words, too. All that in mind, catch it now before others pick it up across the country. Through Sunday, March 24th.Pete ‘Hustle’ Edwards
