While You Were Out
Happy Monday. The Aria Serious crew will be taking today off. It was a long weekend but a very good one. In case you've been on Mars, in a cave, with your fingers in your ears we opened up our season on Saturday with Turandot . So this morning we will bask in the glory of reviews. - Don't come to Turando t for Nessun Dorma - come for the sets and the great cast says the San Diego Union Tribune . We also suggest you don't watch Star Wars just for the Trench Run. - Out West Arts says this Turandot will be hard to beat (two more are planned in California this year). - Concertonet praises the cast and the production in their review . And on the news front: - KPBS / Culture Lust has a wonderful piece on bringing our David Hockney sets together for Turandot - Turandot is a very chorus heavy opera - a look at our tiniest chorus members, the children - A look at tenor Carlo Ventre ( Calaf ) in En Lace (in Spanish) .
