Best Of 2007

Best Performing Arts Sport
James Meena

Staff Pick

Opera Carolina’s mellow artistic director has multiple reasons to feel beleaguered. There’s The Met at the Movies invasion, which brings Romeo et Juliette to the big screen next season at Regal Stonecrest less than two months after the OC brings it to the Big Belk. Then most of the scenarios for the Spirit Square remake are calling for Meena’s company to vacate their offices permanently. But Meena’s wishes for Spirit Square are in concord with the arts community’s best interests. And instead of crying that the sky is falling over the Met’s HD enterprise, Meena seems to harbor the confidence that the tide is rising — for opera. Let’s hope it floats his boat.
