Opera Divas 

2013678.t.jpg
L.A. novelist Lisa See resurrects the true story of three women in 17th-century China in Peony in Love. Together, the gals wrote a scathing critique of one of the country's infamous operas. The catch is that women could only read its libretto, but weren't allowed to see it performed in public because many thought it caused lovesickness, even death. China eventually banned the opera because it contained scenes of an unmarried couple in love. See signs her book at 7 tonight at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 24519 Cedar Road in Lyndhurst. Admission is free. Call 216-691-7000 or visit www.josephbeth.com.
