Queen City Opera Presents Weber's "The Magic Bullets"

May 17, 2019

Queen City Opera, producer of some of the most intimate, least-performed operas, continues that tradition when they present Weber's The Magic Bullets, which was a favorite of composer Gustav Mahler. Artistic Director Isaac Selya joins Anne Arenstein with information about this rare performance, happening twice (May 31 and June 2) at a new venue, the Finneytown Performing Arts Center.

Ohio Governor John Kasich came to Finneytown Secondary School Wednesday to launch "Start Talking,'' a statewide effort to cut down the use of heroin and prescription drugs among young people.
 
Kasich, with Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and members of his cabinet at his side, said Start Talking will involve parents, teachers coaches and the students themselves in helping end the drug abuse he said is in every town, in every corner of the state.

It is a problem, Kasich said, which won't go away on its own and has to be met head-on by every family in Ohio.
