When the Fat Lady Sings, Does She Wear a Mic?

BY KATHERINE SHERWOOD WHITE
@ VOL 1 ON MAY 27, 2016

"There are at least a few common myths about opera that should be debunked!"

In When the Fat Lady Sings, Does She Wear a Mic? from PechaKucha Night Baton Rouge Vol. 1, mezzo-soprano, Katherine Sherwood White debunks the myths surrounding opera. Sherwood White has performed leading roles with Cincinnati Opera, Central City Opera, Kentucky Opera Theater and Texas Opera Theater. She holds a bachelor of music degree from Northwestern State University, a master of music degree from the University of Texas and a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Kentucky. In other words, she knows a lot more about opera than the rest of us. And even what we think we know might turn out to be wrong...

ITALIA - U.G.O. l'unica grande opera è il risanamento del paese

BY AUGUSTO DE SANCTIS
@ VOL 3 ON SEP 06, 2016

UGO: unica grande opera, il risanamento del territorio. In Abruzzo si prevedono grandi opere come le varianti autostradali da 6,5 miliardi nonostante vi sia un territorio ferito e vulnerabile, dal rischio sismico a quello idrogeologico passando per l'inquinamento ambientale. Il sito di Bussi è paradigmatico: individuato da otto anni, non ha visto u grammo dei due milioni di mc di terreni contaminati bonificato. Altre minacce, come le estrazioni di idrocarburi stanno arrivando. Gli abruzzesi stanno lottando fieramente ma è necessario un cambio di rotta strutturale.

Hage som scene for opera!

BY STEINAR SØRLI
@ VOL 8 ON MAR 10, 2017

Hage som scene for opera!

Is it possible to create an international operascene in a village in Vestlandet where they do not listen to opera?
Åmot Operagard har et ideelt formål å formidle opera og klassisk musikk på høyt internasjonalt nivå i kombinasjon med hager kulturarv og lokal mat fra Vestlandet. Operahuset i Åmot i Sunnfjord skal være en møteplass mellom internasjonale og regionale sangere og musikere. Hagen er av Steinar Sørli og Yngve Brakstad, deres motto og visjon er "Å vende blikket mot stjernene".
