If you prefer passionate narratives to summer blockbusters, then the annual Ash Lawn Opera Festival is probably already on your radar.

Set in 19th-century Paris, the foundation for the popular Broadway musical Rent follows a group of struggling artists from the highs of newfound love to the lows of poverty and sickness. Soak up the soaring Italian score with a cast chock-full of Metropolitan Opera veterans and local kids.
