The Trouble With Klinghoffer Isn't Quite What You Think
The Trouble With Klinghoffer Isn't Quite What You Think
By Justin DavidsonVultureMonday, September 22, 2014
Will an opera about terrorists ever not be timely? Can The Death of Klinghoffer ever stop incandescing? John Adams’s work had its premiere in 1991, when the events it was based on—the 1985 hijacking of the cruise ship Achille Lauro and the murder of an American passenger, Leon Klinghoffer—were still raw memories. In the years that followed, occasional new productions and weekly bursts of lethal fanaticism kept reactivating the arguments about the opera. Now that it’s finally coming to the Metropolitan Opera, Palestinian hijackers seem almost to belong to another era, before 9/11, before Iraq and Afghanistan, before anti-Jewish riots in Paris, before drone strikes, Iron Dome, and YouTube beheadings. Through all of that, Klinghoffer hasn’t lost its sting.

Opera discounts: do they deliver?
Opera discounts: do they deliver?
By Simon ThomasWhat's On StageMonday, September 22, 2014
The Royal Opera recently ran a promotional initiative in which under 25s were lured into the opera house at bargain prices (just £1-£25 for Mark-Anthony Turnage's Anna Nicole). Not surprisingly, it played to a packed house of youngsters keen to get the Royal Opera House experience and presumably attracted by a work that sounds less 'stuffy' than most of the company's offerings.

Beth Morrison Projects brings ‘Ouroboros’ to Boston
Beth Morrison Projects brings ‘Ouroboros’ to Boston
By David WeiningerThe Boston GlobeMonday, September 22, 2014
Even though she’s been based in New York for almost a decade, Beth Morrison knows Boston well. She earned a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from Boston University, and it was during her exploration of Boston’s independent theater scene that she hatched the idea of forming her own company to produce contemporary opera and music theater works. Today, Beth Morrison Projects is a driving force in the difficult task of guiding new-music projects from conception to stage, with a portfolio that includes works by Nico Muhly, David T. Little, and David Lang.
Is the Dallas Opera the Best Run Opera Company in the United States?
By Peter SimekD MagazineMonday, September 22, 2014
Okay, that headline is going to take a little more to answer than what I have here to back it up. But let’s just put it this way. Last year the New York City Opera went bankrupt. Earlier this year, the head of the Metropolitan Opera in New York said the seminal institution could be facing a “bankruptcy situation in two to three years.” Here in Dallas, after the Dallas Opera flirted with young dynamo George Steele, the kind of up-and-coming hot shot you’d expect Dallas to hire (and the man who eventually marched the New York City Opera out of existence), they opted for a more conservative approach, bringing in the San Francisco Opera’s COO/CFO Keith Cerny. Cerny cuts the profile of corporate accountant.
