On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek caught up with rock n' roll hall of famer Stewart Copeland. The former drummer for The Police is premiering his new opera in Chicago. Gary also visited a new retrospective on groundbreaking choreographer/dancer Merce Cunningham that just opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art. We'll hear from a Northern Illinois sound engineer that worked on Third Coast Percussion's Grammy-winning album. Plus, a story about a new horror anthology titled XX. And the Dueling Critics review a new play titled THE ASSEMBLED PARTIES.
