Angela Brown wowed a packed house at the Arts Council's annual Start With Art gathering in September with stories of growing up in her Indianapolis 'hood. Then she let loose with that gorgeous voice that's had opera fans around the world at her feet and, well, it was all over. Brown says she loves Indianapolis and she's backing that up by starring in the Indianapolis Opera's production of Ariadne auf Naxos
