Opera sometimes gets a bad rap as a dated or unlistenable genre. But something happens when you start to pay attention to the Toledo Opera—you see young and enthusiastic faces pushing a simple message: Opera Ain’t No Drag. Join the Toledo Opera and the Pride of Toledo Foundation for the second installment of this creative, over-the-top event. Some of the area’s best drag queens will share the stage with incredible singers. Even those new to opera will enjoy the public display of playful selections.

$15/general and $25/pair, online or at the door. 7pm, Saturday February 7. Collingwood Arts Center, 2413 Collingwood Blvd. 419-244-2787, OperaAintNoDrag2015.brownpapertickets.com
