For more than three weeks, members of Opera New Jersey are living at Meadow Lakes, a senior living community in Hightstown. The unusual arrangement is a swap: opera staff are given free accommodation, food and practice space, while residents have the opportunity to sit in on the company's 12-hour daily rehearsals for statewide performances of 'Die Fledermaus.' Performers say their final production benefits from a closer relationship between the cast and crew, while residents appreciate the daily performances. (Video by Nyier Abdou/The Star-Ledger)
