Review: JOHN WILLIAMS 90TH BIRTHDAY GALA CONCERT at Kennedy Center Photo Review: JOHN WILLIAMS 90TH BIRTHDAY GALA CONCERT at Kennedy Center
by Elliot Lanes - June 27, 2022

109 film scores, lots of symphonic music, and the music you hear during the Olympics doesn't even begin to properly describe a true living musical legend like John Williams. His 50 years and 29 film association with Steven Spielberg is the longest relationship in film between a director and a compos...
Review: CENTER STAGE at Opera Theatre Of Saint Louis Photo Review: CENTER STAGE at Opera Theatre Of Saint Louis
by Steve Callahan - June 23, 2022

What did our critic think? Center Stage is a great smörgåsbord of opera- No, no, that's far too Swedish and Lutheran and heavy. If the whole OTSL festival is a great feast, then Center Stage is the delicious icing on the top of that final cake. It's all dessert and no vegetables....

BWW Review: SAN DIEGO SYMPHONY CONCERT at Rady Shell Amphitheater Photo BWW Review: SAN DIEGO SYMPHONY CONCERT at Rady Shell Amphitheater
by Ron Bierman - May 25, 2022

Musical impressionism ruled the San Diego Symphony’s early-evening Rady Shell concert this past weekend. First came conductor-composer Esa-Pekka Salonen’s reaction to Nyx, a daughter of Chaos, the earliest Greek god. Nyx, rarely mentioned in extant ancient Greek-literature, is goddess of the night, ...
BWW Review: CARMEN at The Kennedy Center Photo BWW Review: CARMEN at The Kennedy Center
by Rachael F. Goldberg - May 24, 2022

While this production of 'Carmen' is very traditional on its face, the thoughtfulness and sheer talent packed into this performance elevates it to something far more engaging, and absolutely enchanting. It’s more than worthy of audiences’ time, and hopefully WNO’s fresh interpretation will help audi...
