20K, with “T-Day” just a week away!

by Suzanne Calvin

Actually, in one sense, “T-Day” is tonight, as the Dallas Opera opens our fabulous production of “Turandot,” with irresistible music by Giacomo Puccini including the best-known aria in the repertoire: “Nessun Dorma,” sung by Italian tenor Antonello Palombi.  This production stars the marvelous American soprano Lise Lindstrom in the title role at the head of […]

The SSNT Casts a Spell of Its Own

by Suzanne Calvin

It’s definitely the little newspaper “that could,” and I mean that in the nicest possible way. The “Sulphur Springs News-Telegram” and its intrepid, award-winning arts editor Terry Mathews continue to defy the odds with detailed, in-depth interviews and articles that have kept the spotlight on the Dallas Opera all season long — and beyond! Or so […]

Score!

by Suzanne Calvin

It was an amazing thing to see: 15 thousand people, most of whom stayed all the way through the curtain calls and many of whom–I’ll bet–walked away with a completely different impression of this art form we call “opera.” It was a grand night for the Dallas Opera, The Dallas Foundation, and Cowboys Stadium, but […]

Tamino Talks

by Suzanne Calvin

Admittedly, a rather silly headline, but we already knew Shawn could sing. In fact, he was evidently a Wunderlich-inspired wunderkind! Read tenor Shawn Mathey’s charming interview with Gregory Sullivan Isaacs at “Theater Jones,” as the two tenors indulge in a little shop-talk and wonderful tales of Shawn’s dad, tenor/conductor Richard Mathey. Get it all here and […]

My Personal Favorite

by Suzanne Calvin

There have been so many terrific stories on the Dallas Opera Cowboys Stadium Simulcast, presented by The Dallas Foundation, but Jamie Laughlin’s spoof on “The Mixmaster,” the “Dallas Observer’s” art and culture blog may be the wittiest effort yet. However, now that I can’t–in good taste–wear my “Mozart is My Homeboy” tee to Saturday’s event, […]

I don’t think I have ever typed the words “drawing nigh” in my life, but here we are, just two days away from what appears to be one of the largest opera simulcasts in American history. It’s happening Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, presented by The Dallas Foundation, and Sandie Newton of KTVT CBS-11 […]
