Baritone Efraín Solís on 'Papageno' -- Now at San Francisco Opera
Huffington Post - over 1 year
San Francisco Opera's revival of designer Jun Kaneko's The Magic Flute is simply the best show in town. Now through November 20, it's all about Art - what can be done with a square and compass, digital technology, a magnificent company of musicians, and Mozart. With an English libretto by General Director David Gockley, the translation tweaks the imagination, flatters the singer, and makes the Totally Other totally available. Tuesday's opening night performance came with a huge surprise from the gods. As the house lights dimmed, Mr. Gockley stepped out to say that lightning had just struck - twice! Two of the cast members had taken ill. As "The Queen of the Night", soprano Albina Shagimuratova (from the 2012 premiere) would be replaced by Kathryn Bowden and that first-year Adler Fellow Julie Adams would replace Jacqueline Piccolino as "The First Lady". The air was charged. Last week, I spoke with baritone EfraÍn SolÍs who learned at the end of August that he would be on for the entir ...

Farm tour takes consumers back to foods' local origins
Blue Ridge Now - over 3 years
Robinson Adams is only 2, but he knows where an apple comes from. Sunday was the toddler’s second trip with his family to Justus Orchard on Garren Road, where his grandmother, Julie Adams of Aiken, S.C., pulled him through rows of apples in a wagon and his dad, Chip, held him up high to pick the tallest Mutsu he could spy. The trip to the Justus’ U-pick operation, bakery and apple house has become an Adams family tradition, his mom Abbey said. “We have pictures of his dad holding him up above his head to pick an apple last year,” she said. Justus Orchard was one of four Henderson County stops on a weekend-long tour of 31 regional farms sponsored by the nonprofit Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project. The self-guided tour offered visitors a chance to learn how their food is grown, taste farm-fresh products, meet farm animals and shake hands with local growers. “With our food system, it’s so easy for us to go to the grocery store and get food without thinking about h ...

Why I Love 3D Movies - And Why They're the Future of Cinema
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This may be a controversial thing to say, but I'm an unapologetic fan of 3D movies. I see 3D not as a fad, but as the wave of the future. Whether it's in movies, the next generation of smart-phone apps, or 3D modeling and printing, the trend in all our technology is toward recreating reality with greater detail in three dimensions. I'll have more to say about this in a moment, but first, I wanted to let fans of 3D cinema know about a wonderful opportunity this week to see classic 3D films at the World 3-D Film Expo in Hollywood. Leonard Maltin gives high praise to this festival for offering what may be "the last opportunity" to see many classic 3D films in their original 35mm dual-projection formats, noting that "digital restorations are good but they don't pop off the screen the way the originals do." The World 3-D Film Expo is unspooling this week through Sunday, September 15th at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. The screening not to be missed at the World 3-D Film Expo i ...

Holmes Said To Be A 'Brilliant' Science Student
Huffington Post - over 4 years
DENVER — James Eagen Holmes came from a well-tended San Diego enclave of two-story homes with red-tiled roofs, where neighbors recall him as a clean-cut, studious young man of sparing words. Tall and dark-haired, he stared clear-eyed at the camera in a 2004 high school yearbook snapshot, wearing a white junior varsity soccer uniform – No. 16. The son of a nurse, Arlene, and a software company manager, Robert, James Holmes was a brilliant science scholar in college. The biggest mystery surrounding the 24-year-old doctoral student was why he would have pulled on a gas mask and shot dozens of people early Friday in a suburban Denver movie theater, as police allege. In the age of widespread social media, no trace of Holmes could be found on Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter or anywhere on the Web. Either he never engaged or he scrubbed his trail. A longtime neighbor in San Diego, where Holmes grew up, remembers only a "shy guy ... a loner" from a churchgoing ...
