Citizen of the Week
Jim Swiggart, General Director of Opera in the Ozarks, has spent the past 20 years changing the landscape of not only Eureka Springs but the entire region with his work at the Opera. Each year, the Opera of the Ozarks enables young artists in their quest for experience and knowledge, to the credit of both the artists and the program. Alumni of Opera in the Ozarks have served their art in major opera houses, orchestras and educational institutions internationally, and Jim continues that tradition season after season, bring us tomorrow's stars today, here in our little mountain hamlet. Thank you, sir.
