While those plans didn’t come to fruition, the area is proud to boast two homes designed by the visionary architect – Kentuck Knob and the iconic Fallingwater. This weekend, which would have been Frank Lloyd Wright’s 146th birthday, the <a href="http://otsummerfest.org/">Opera Theater of Pittsburgh</a>, in conjunction with the <a href="http://www.paconserve.org/">Western Pennsylvania Conservancy</a>, will present <a href="http://otsummerfest.org/shiningbrow.html">Shining Brow,</a> an opera covering eleven years in the life of Frank Lloyd Wright, performed on the exterior terraces of Fallingwater.
