‘Elektra’ closes Met Opera’s HD season

A sure sign of summer’s approach is the realization that this weekend’s Metropolitan Opera HD telecast of “Elektra” is the final one of the 2015-2016 series. If the length of several of the Met productions has deterred some from attending these spectacular HD events, note that the running time of “Elektra” is under two hours.

Happy days get even better

A leading figure in local music stopped me on the sidewalk back in 1979 and asked how on earth I found something to write about every week. Now, here it is 2016, with local entertainment and culture exploding, and a leading local resident stopped me on the sidewalk to bemoan that he had been downtown — on a weeknight no less — but had encountered far more good stuff than he could attend.

Summer is coming… and that’s OK

Spring has certainly sprung. Like it or not, our brains are slowly accepting the realization that summer is coming. Thankfully, a smart person invented air conditioning, swimming holes and cold beverages to provide comfort during our long summer months.
