Episode: Pint O' Comics Episode 221 w/ Alek Shrader

 Opera comes to the Pint! As the show continues to break new ground for crossover pop culture situations, the show welcomes Alek Shrader, operatic tenor, director, and now graphic novel writer. Alek is deeply invested in bringing opera to new eyes, most recently with a graphic novel adaptation of the 150-year old story of CARMEN. With two artistic talents to bring the story to life on the printed page, he may be well on his way to putting fresh bodies in the seats of opera houses across the continent. We discuss how opera has been an active part of his life and how it can enrich even your host's jaded thoughts. To top it off, we get a little nerdy at the close. A wholly enjoyable hour of radio.

Carmen the Graphic Novel is a currently running Kickstarter and can be easily located with a quick search. Alek Shrader, writer, P. Craig Russell and Aneke, artists. Not something to be missed.
