Ending the Week on an Existential Note

by Suzanne Calvin

Before we get all warm and fuzzy at the AT&T Performing Arts Center tree lighting and in response to all the wonderful reasons we have to celebrate during the month ahead, let’s talk for a moment about DEATH. D-E-A-T-H, as in “Death and the Powers,” a tremendously innovative contemporary opera by MIT Media Lab composer/inventor Tod Machover and poet laureate Robert Pinsky.  The work is slated for a regional premiere and was announced for the Dallas Opera’s 2013-2014 Season--albeit earlier than we expected. “Dallas Observer” music critic Katie Womack talks about the recent developments right here.
