Stage Reviews

Adams: The Gospel According to the Other Mary (Master Choral, Los Angeles Philharmonic/Dudamel)

Dudamel and Co illuminate a passionate choral cry for peace

Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake (Bergen Philharmonic, Järvi)

A vigorous reading that doesn't quite displace the benchmarks

Berlin, Weill, Porter: Golden Age Songs (Raabe)

Oops, Max Raabe did it again in a German nostalgia fan’s dream.

Smoke Encrypted Whispers: Poems by Samuel Wagan Watson

Fine Australian poems and their musical consequences.

Ligeti: Le Grand Macabre (La Fura Dels Baus DVD)

Ligeti’s Big Mac is an anti-anti-opera for our times.
