by Ron Bierman - Oct 30, 2018

It was a rare event, two symphony orchestras on stage at the same time, and Russian conductor Valery Gergiev was spectacular. He first set a carefree festive mood with the drinking song from Puccini's La Traviata, performed with Viennese flair by the Mariinsky Orchestra and six singers from the Mariinsky Theater's Atkins Young Artists Program. Puccini's call to hedonistic living was followed by the boisterous joy of Glinka's overture to Ruslan and Ludmilla at the fastest tempo I ever expect to hear, a full minute faster than some of the best recordings. While perhaps wondering how a toothpick became his baton (though not his San Diego choice), you can judge the speed for yourself in a YouTube video recorded during a previous Gergiev concert. The breakneck speed, without seeming a showoff gimmick, demonstrated the agility and precision of the Mariinsky musicians and the warm rich sound of the string section. (more...)

BWW Review: A Marvelously Sung, Laugh Fest - UMPO STRANGER THINGS - No THING Better!!!
by Gil Kaan - Oct 28, 2018

Kate Pazakis, executive producer of the UNAUTHORIZED MUSICAL PARODY OF series, continues her successful streak of hysterical musical parodies of cinematic pop favorites with THE UNAUTHORIZED MUSICAL PARODY OF STRANGER THINGS. Pazakis' most witty script cleverly utilizes pop songs to advance the narrative of the Netflix cult phenom Stranger Things. Nathan Moore expertly directs his cast of enthusiastic triple-threats at a rousing, non-stop pace with only enough time for deserved Applause to die down before the next song or comedy bit tickles your funny bones.  (more...)

by Debbie Gilpin - Oct 28, 2018

This year sees the 40th anniversary of John Williams' first concert with the London Symphony Orchestra, which was performed at the Royal Albert Hall in February 1978. Friday's concert would have heralded Williams' return to perform in London for the first time in over 20 years, though this was sadly prevented by illness. One of Williams' long-time colleagues Dirk Brosse instead took up the conductor's baton, and the event became a big celebration of and expression of love for a composer whose career has spanned six decades, finding a place in millions of people's hearts thanks to his legendary film and television scores.

BWW Review: SAN DIEGO OPERA: THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO at the Civic Center Theater
by Ron Bierman - Oct 27, 2018

The San Diego Opera's production of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro featured expressive singing, clever attractive sets, beautiful costumes, and strong comedic and dramatic acting. The work is generally called a comic opera, but as director Stephen Lawless pointed out during my interview with him, 'There are tears behind the laughter.' The difficult political and social issues hiding behind laughter came from the Beaumarchais play on which the opera was based, and Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte had to make light of them or risk censorship. The play's depiction of royal abuses probably contributed to the start of the French Revolution. Napoleon went so far as to say the it was, 'the Revolution already put into action.' (more...)

by Annette Stolt - Oct 26, 2018

During his entire career, Peter Joback has gone from musical to pop back and forth. In recent years, he has been dedicated to the musicals as he played the Phantom of the Opera Phantom, both in West End, Broadway and Stockholm. However, together with Kathryn Williams, Tobias Froberg and Tobias Karlsson, he has written songs for a new pop album. The first time he released a taste of it was in London almost 4 years ago when he sang 'Beliver' in a stripped version. Now he has recorded 10 songs, all with amazing arrangements with a band, strings and brass with exception of the song, Call Me By Your Name, performed only by a piano. Resound is a perfect choir which, along with the skilled musicians and Peter's voice, completes every song. (more...)

BWW Review: SATYAGRAHA at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
by Maria Nockin - Oct 22, 2018

On October 20, 2018, Los Angeles Opera presented Philip Glass's SATYAGRAHA which tells of Mahatma Gandhi's early years in South Africa. SATYAGRAHA means truth, the real, the good combined with force or insistence. It is most often associated with Gandhi's nonviolent protests and resistance to racist laws. What he achieved by passive means was amazing at the time and remains a wonder today when racism is once again knocking on our doors. (more...)
