Today, we hear how you stage an opera without a concert hall. We meet a local opera composer, who pivoted from live performance to animation because of the pandemic. Then, we learn how Bay Area comedians help others find comedy relief when it comes to living with mental health issues.

Hana Baba is host of Crosscurrents, KALW's weeknight newsmagazine that broadcasts on KALW Public Radio in the San Francisco Bay Area.
