Optic Sink's Natalie Hoffmann (NOTS) creates a musical paradox: an endeavor that doesn't seem to belong to any particular time or place. She constructs with sounds that are synthesized and stripped down, yet bristling with urgency and brutalist emotion. With percussionist Ben Bauermeister (Magic Kids, Toxie, A55 Conducta) by her side, the two set up camp on the post-punk side of the minimal electronic scene.

BWW Review: MN OPERA'S Scintillating ELEKTRA Opens Exceptional 2019-2020 SEASON Photo BWW Review: MN OPERA'S Scintillating ELEKTRA Opens Exceptional 2019-2020 SEASON
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Oct 21, 2019

The Minnesota Opera (MN OPERA) christened their new season at St. Paul's Ordway Center with Richard Strauss' 1909 score of ELEKTRA combined with a libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal. After a century, Strauss' Elektra, a tragic Greek myth, confronts the wrath of God on men, and the revenge of families on their own parents and siblings to disastrous results. A stellar creative team, which inhabits all the MN Opera productions, provides a modern twist to the ancient myth, where the action has been forwarded to the early 1900's. At that time, Austrian filmmaker and producer, Fritz Lang (1890-1976), made history directing silent film noira?"when melodramas were a consistent source of entertainment.

BWW Review: KING KONG: It Was Inept Writing Killed The Musical Photo BWW Review: KING KONG: It Was Inept Writing Killed The Musical
by Michael Dale - Nov 9, 2018

Using Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack's 1933 cinema classic 'King Kong' as the inspiration for a musical theatre piece really isn't such a bad idea. Among the film's notable achievements is the extraordinary dramatic underscoring music by Max Steiner, that supplied the title character's tragic death plunge from atop the Empire State Building with the kind of heartbreaking emotion that would make any operatic tenor jealous.
