Opera Santa Barbara presents this season’s final Opera on the Go with an open forum for leading contemporary composers Stephen Schwartz, Jake Heggie, and Daniel Catán on Wednesday, May 24, at 5:30 p.m., to prove to Santa Barbarans that opera is not dead. Far from it, these accredited and lauded maestros will attempt to counter problems with the current opera stigma in America, where many find the art form Eurocentric, static, and old-fashioned. Peter Frisch will moderate the night’s event at Victoria Hall Theater. Call 898-3890.
