BWW Editorial: Opera Moderna, una storia di false partenze
by Francesco Vittorino - May 16, 2017

Cinquant'anni fa debuttava al Sistina l'opera beat di Tito Schipa jr. 'THEN AN ALLEY', considerata il primo esperimento al mondo di Opera Rock. La scelta del titolo (che si traduce 'E poi una strada') fu quasi profetica, perche quello fu il primo passo di un cammino che porto alla rifondazione del genere operistico attraverso spettacoli come 'Tommy', 'Jesus Christ Superstar', 'Starmania', 'Notre-Dame de Paris' e tanti altri. Spettacoli anche molto diversi tra loro (opere rock, opere popolari, opere prog eccetera) accomunati pero da una drammaturgia che recupera quella del melodramma. Ci sarebbe quasi da commuoversi all'idea che un anniversario del genere cada a pochi giorni dal 450° compleanno di Monteverdi, uno dei padri fondatori del genere operistico classico, se non fosse per una cosa. Perche l'Opera Moderna fatica a prendere piede in Italia? (more...)

JONNY LANG Comes to Boulder Theater 9/9
by BWW News Desk - May 15, 2017

Sixteen years ago, at the age of 16, Jonny Lang found incredible success with the release of his major label debut album Lie To Me.  Fame does not seem to have impacted him from being the same country farm boy from Fargo, ND who got his start in the local clubs of Minneapolis.  He survived the passage of youth to adulthood, fell in love, began a family, and in the process passed through the life lessons we all endure.  He has a keen sense of what he aims to achieve creatively, what music means to him, and is focused on the impact that his songs bring to the lives of those that encounter his repertoire.  For Lang, with the release of Fight For My Soul, he is entering a chapter wherein he has found his true voice.
