WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- How about a night at the opera, followed by gambling at a casino?

That unusual pairing of art and entertainment options will be available soon in the Wichita area, thanks to a partnership between the Wichita Grand Opera and the Kansas Star Arena.

Parvan Bakardiev, the opera's general director, said the opera plans to put on full-scale operas and bring popular acts to the arena, operated by the casino near Mulvane.

The first act booked by the partnership will be Celtic Woman, an Irish musical ensemble. They'll perform Dec. 13, accompanied by the Wichita Grand Opera Orchestra.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/14Lpwcy ) the arena can seat up to 6,000 people, compared with the 2,200-seat Century II Concert Hall where the opera usually performs.
