The Mystery of The Lighthouse by Wayne Lee Gay

by Megan Meister

The disappearance, in December of 1900, of the staff of three keepers at a remote lighthouse in the Flannan Isles of Scotland attracted attention not only throughout the British Isles but across Europe and the English-speaking world. No human suspect emerged, and no logical scenario entirely explained the obvious fact that three men, presumably living […]

Tristan & Isolde – What a Night!

by Suzanne Calvin

Okay, I confess: by the end of the evening, I was struggling with tears (and for all the right reasons).

The Critics Speak, Part One

by Suzanne Calvin

Heads rolled and the reviews are already rolling in for the Dallas Opera’s final installment of the famed Tudor Trilogy, “Anna Bolena” (Anne Boleyn) which opened this past weekend.
