Best in a Lifetime!

by Suzanne Calvin

Wow. We not only made Mark-Brian Sonna’s Top Ten List for the year just ended, we redefined the role of Don Giovanni for a generation, presented “our new Pavarotti” in two outstanding works and gave this critic one of the most memorable theatrical experiences of his entire life!  Given what a critic experiences year-in and year-out, that’s quite […]

The name is pronounced “Shot,” by the way.  POW-low SHOT.  Hope you won money on that one. “Dallas audiences ARE in for a treat” any way you pronounce it. I’m counting the days until the arrival of baritone Paulo Szot to begin rehearsals for our season opener: Mozart’s retelling of the Don Juan legend, “Don Giovanni.” And […]

Weimaraner Republic

by Suzanne Calvin

I was checking out this slight, charming, Post-Tony (but still during the run of “South Pacific”) interview with Paulo Szot when the questioning turned to his dogs…as in five Weimareimarimaraners.  (sigh!) You know what I mean. I can’t help wondering, even if two stay with his parents, whether the other three will be cavorting outside […]
