Today’s opera world is heavily influenced by the vision of the stage director, particularly in Europe, where theater visionaries (some successful, some not so much) have rethought stage works old and new in ways that use the plot as a stepping-off point rather than a reference.

It holds to that tradition by appearing regularly during the Heinz Poll […]

There’s still time to catch Nathan Sawaya’s LEGO creations at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood (a Knight Arts grantee). Yes, his work has shown here twice before, but what has turned out to be a real summer blockbuster for the center is still an unexpected delight. First off, don’t be fooled by these […]
