Video: Aida - rehearsals at Gran Teatre del Liceu

"A behind-the-scenes look into Thomas Guthrie's new production of 'Aida' at Gran Teatre del Liceu. [Classical Tahoe Season 7 Solosist] Jennifer Rowley makes her house and role debut as the titular heroine in January 2020." -

January 13- February 2, 2020

"Aida as our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents saw it, set against the hyper-realist scenery designed in 1945 by the Catalan artist from Manresa, Josep Mestres Cabanes. This splendid creation of the great Catalan school of set design emphasizes the grandeur – and also the intimacy – of Verdi's third-before-last opera, remaining true to the historicist tradition without ever lapsing into kitsch."

Frank Sinatra Has a Cold


In the winter of 1965, writer Gay Talese arrived in Los Angeles with an assignment from Esquire to profile Frank Sinatra. The legendary singer was approaching fifty, under the weather, out of sorts, and unwilling to be interviewed. So Talese remained in L.A., hoping Sinatra might recover and reconsider, and he began talking to many of the people around Sinatra—his friends, his associates, his family, his countless hangers-onand observing the man himself wherever he could.

The result, "Frank Sinatra Has a Cold," ran in April 1966 and became one of the most celebrated magazine stories ever published, a pioneering example of what came to be called New Journalisma work of rigorously faithful fact enlivened with the kind of vivid storytelling that had previously been reserved for fiction. The piece conjures a deeply rich portrait of one of the era's most guarded figures and tells a larger story about entertainment, celebrity, and America itself.
