It was scandalous in 411 B.C.: A woman, Lysistrata, was so fed up with constant war that she convinced noble women to withhold sex to get their warrior husbands to stop fighting. Reimagined for today as a comic account of her extraordinary mission, the 2005 opera Lysistrata, or The Nude Goddess, will be filmed on location in Pittsburgh this summer featuring members of Hans and Leslie Fleischner Young Artists Program and directed by Derrick R. Brown, conducted by Robert Frankenberry, and produced by Lynne Squilla and Lindsay Lehman.
