Inside The Arts: Chesapeake Tackles Arts Funding, Gisela's Bathtub And Blue Bayou Salutes Ronstadt

Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt
Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt

This week on Inside the Arts, we tickle your funny bone as art and politics collide in playwright Lee Blessings' Chesapeake, a parody on the funding of public art.

Then, the laughs continue as opera comes alive in the powder room, of all places, with the American premiere of Gisela in Her Bathtub. It is one of two one-act operas, with selections by Samuel Barber presented by the Marigny Opera House and the 9th Ward Opera Company.

And, we round out with a tribute to Grammy Award winning pop vocalist Linda Ronstadt with True Blue Bayou featuring vocalist/actress Dorian Rush.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:35 a.m.
