Stronger Than Adele? The Right Now's 'Starlight' is Out Now!Stronger Than Adele? The Right Now's 'Starlight' is Out Now!
by BWW News Desk - Feb 27, 2017

The Right Now is proud to release their third full-length release: Starlight. Branching out from their traditional soul-revivalist mode, Starlight pushes the bounds of The Right Now's style. While soul and r&b undertones continue to lay the foundation for each arrangement, disco and pop elements emerge into a fresh, diverse sound. With some personal—and personnel—changes, the band took their time with the follow-up to 2012's Gets Over You. They found that getting the right sound was more important than rushing out the music.

Seattle Opera Presents LA TRAVIATASeattle Opera Presents LA TRAVIATA
by BWW News Desk - Nov 28, 2016

Seattle Opera rings in the New Year with some of the most glorious music in all of opera: Verdi's La traviata, the original Moulin Rouge. German Stage Director Peter Konwitschny has created an "excitingly rebellious" (A Younger Theater) production that takes an uncompromising look at moral hypocrisy. In this story, practically all of Paris rushes in as voyeurs to watch the demise of the town's dying "It Girl"-a modern-day courtesan named Violetta. The crowd, withmore concern for their entertainment than her health, foists a new admirer on her: a young, socially awkward bookworm named Alfredo. While love seems like it could be a distraction, there's ultimately no denying the darkness that descends on Verdi's heroine. Presented without intermission, the "non-stop music keeps the audience riveted throughout" (Express, UK).   (more...)
