Big Fat Broadway Returns As UK Opera Stages "Les Miz"

It’s not quite a tradition, yet, but UK Opera’s developing the habit of staging ambitious Broadway productions.  Last year, it was Phantom of the Opera, and this week Les Miserables plays at the Lexington Opera House.  Here with a preview is reporter Rich Copley, who covers culture for the Lexington Herald Leader.  Rich spoke with Arts Weekly producer Charles Compton
