Robbins feels that performing in a relaxed surrounding, with a casual and interactive audience is a great way to share the genre and broaden its fan base.

Fort Wayne is raising a glass to a new form of entertainment here in Indiana with the launch of Opera on Tap this Wednesday, January 22nd, at Hop River Brewing Company.

This local chapter is part of the largest network of operatic artists in the US, and chapters are now opening in Europe as well.

Earlier this week, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with one of its co-founders, Elaina Robbins, to talk about the fine points of this immersive opera project.
