In the Knoxville Mercury: So much to read, so little time…

Be sure to pick up a copy of the Knoxville Mercury this week—there are reviews of local performances plus the special pull-out-and-carry guide (necessary and indispensable) to Knoxville Opera’s Rossini Festival and the International Street Fair on Saturday. In that section you can read:

Exclusively in the print version, Dennis Perkins looks at the Rossini Festival International Street Fair and be sure to read the origins of opera in Knoxville from the Knoxville History Project and Jack Neely.

Also available in the issue:
