Louisa May Alcott lit a fire that still burns when she wrote "Little Women" a century and a half ago. Who knew people were still clamoring to read the book today?
Or that people love it enough to transform it into different art forms? Case in point: Eugene Opera's presentation of "Little Women" as an opera, written in 1998 by Mark Adamo.
The opera will be presented May 14-15, but the University of Oregon's Kathleen O'Fallon will talk about the story's endurance tonight (May 3) at the Eugene Library. Dr. O'Fallon joins us with a brief preview.
