by Richard Sasanow - Jan 27, 2014

If your musical taste runs to Elliott Carter--or even Nico Muhly, whose TWO BOYS premiered at the Met this fall--then Kirke Mechem's THE RIVALS, which had its NY premiere this month at the Bronx Opera Company, may not be your cup of tea.

Watergate: New Book Series Explores Testimony and Connection with an Ancient, Buried Treasure
by BWW News Desk - Jul 31, 2013

John Clarence and Tom Whittle, co-authors of The Gold House trilogy, say that a 1981 article in The Investigator magazine, published by American newspaper columnist Jack Anderson, may have been the first published source to identify the role of President Lyndon Johnson in a multibillion-dollar gold theft.
