Giovanni Battista Pergolesi - Septem verba a Christo (Sophie Karthaüser, Christophe Dumaux, Julien Behr, Konstantin Wolff, Academie für Alte Musik Berlin/Rene Jacobs)

“Tosca,” starring the Philadelphia Orchestra
Though orchestrally lavish, this “semi-staging” delivers less theater than no staging at all. Fri, 18 May 2018 14:00:34 +0000
Lovely and never violent
There was a lot expectation about the new opera by George Benjamin and Martin Crimp. Their previous collaboration, Written on Skin, was an enormous critical and public success,  earning the work a place in the exclusive club of 21th century classics with selected works by Saariaho, Heggie and Birtwistle.  Instead of trying to repeat the winning formula, both Benjamin and Crimp have taken new paths in terms of narrative and musical structure. Once again, though, they arrived at the desired  destination: a well rounded theatrical and musical experience which challenges  he spectator and rewards him. The King loves his wife and […] Fri, 18 May 2018 02:46:43 +0000
A touch of the stone
“Trove Thursday” turns its Rossini-150 series to one of the composer’s least known but tastiest comic gems La Pietra del Paragone with Julia Hamari, Justino Diaz, Alessandro Corbelli, Claudio Desderi and Paolo Barbacini conducted by Roberto Abbado.  Having had Semiramide a few months ago, something lighter—and shorter—was called for,  although Pietra (“The Touchstone”) is categorized as a melodramma giocoso. It’s a delight full of effervescent ensembles and has long been one of my favorites but it’s done so rarely that many may not know it at all. An early work, it precedes the better known Tancredi and L’Italiana in Algeri by just […] Thu, 17 May 2018 14:00:21 +0000

Problematic Trade Talks Stall China-U.S.Film Discussions
Negotiations are at a standstill, but that doesn't mean everything's bad. "The shift from earlier talks is a double-edged sword for U.S. producers looking at China’s $8.6 billion cinema market. It could be bad news if broader talks go sour, but it could offer a potential path forward if the two countries find common ground." Sun, 20 May 2018 20:30:37 +0000
Gala Dalí Was Far More Than A Muse For Her Husband
New photos show her own art and photographic eye. "Gala never spoke to the press about their relationship, so her impact on Dalí’s art must be decoded through his incredibly performative memoir, public appearances, and gossip from those who passed through their famous parties and orgies. But in Women Photograph Dalí, her gaze directed back […] Sun, 20 May 2018 20:00:01 +0000
Yes, Performing Artists Need To Pay Attention To Visas (No, Not The Credit Card)
Why? Because the U.S. visa process has gotten more expensive and much harder to navigate with success. "Visa delays and denials have damaged a wide number of productions, and in many situations, have led to cancellations. It is tempting to feel powerless—to feel that there is nothing that the performing arts community can do to […] Sun, 20 May 2018 19:30:35 +0000
The New Lynching Memorial May Be A Massive Gamechanger For Alabama Tourism
There are few direct flights to Montgomery, where the memorial opened, and it's a three-hour drive from Atlanta. Still, officials estimate it may attract 100,000 people in its first year. "One young man, Dimitri Digbeu Jr., who drove 13 hours from Baltimore to see the memorial, said he thought it had singlehandedly 'rebranded' Montgomery." Sun, 20 May 2018 19:00:14 +0000
