Opera Takes Your Evening Commute to the Next Level

Picture this: It’s the end of the workday and you’re trudging through Union Station to catch the train or bus home. Out of the corner of your eye, you see someone dancing flamenco. What? Flamenco dancers in the station? Suddenly, your evening commute is transformed into something greater.
