Regina

Sat., May 26, 8 p.m., Thu., May 31, 8 p.m., Wed., June 6, 1 p.m., Fri., June 8, 8 p.m., Sat., June 16, 1 p.m., Wed., June 20, 8 p.m. and Sun., June 24, 7 p.m.

Regina Hubbard Giddens became wealthy and powerful by choice. Denied her share of the family fortune inherited by her two brothers, she marries the rich but mild-mannered Horace for his money. When her brothers offer her a buy-in on their new financial scheme, she's infuriated by Horace's rejection of the plan and even more angered by his outright refusal to just give her the money. This sets Regina on a path to ruin every man in her extended family, and her chosen tools are murder, blackmail and whatever else comes to mind. Lillian Hellman's play The Little Foxes provides the basis for the opera Regina, written and composed by Marc Blitzstein. Opera Theatre St. Louis presents Regina as its second show of the summer, with mezzo-soprano Susan Graham in the title role, at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 26, at Webster University's Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.opera-stl.org). The show is performed six more times in repertory through June 24. Tickets are $25 to $185. $25-$185

In the early 1950s, Pruitt-Igoe, a vast public housing project, arose on 57 acres on the near north side of St. Louis. Barely 20 years after construction, the 33 eleven-story buildings that made up the complex were razed, and the vacant land that was once home to thousands of people was gradually reclaimed by a dense, neglected urban forest. What happened in-between is a story that tempts but also defies simple narratives. Robert Hansman's book Pruitt-Igoe is a story of interweaving and competing accounts, both then and now. This volume approaches Pruitt-Igoe with all of its contradiction in mind. free

In Growing Up with the River, you will meet children from nine generations who grew up along the Missouri River from Hermann to St. Charles and share in a long list of adventures and changes they see in the river valley. Growing Up with the River is by Dan and Connie Burkhardt and illustrated by Bryan Haynes. What hasn’t changed in two centuries is the natural scenic beauty of Missouri River Country and the small river communities that sprung up along the river and the railroads. The Arch, one of the most recognized symbols in the world, was created to be a lasting symbol to the Missouri River and the history that unfolded along its banks. free

What would you do if you lost your soulmate? For Orfeo, the answer is simple: get her back — even if it means traveling to the underworld. He braves every challenge, armed with nothing more than his music and his devotion. Little does he realize that his greatest obstacle will ultimately be his own passion. As a myth, it’s a celebration of love and of music’s transcendent power. As an opera, it’s a ravishing masterpiece. $25-$132
