Well, after a bit of a hiatus, I'm back in the City Weekly this week. (Next week too!)
Just got out of the habit, but it's a nice gig when you can get it.
This week I give a brief preview for Utah Opera's production of Beethoven's Fidelio, playing now. His only opera and one that definately is as powerful today as it was when it originally premiered.
(Ya, ya, Beethoven, boring, I hear you say. But remember the ending scene of the King's Speech, when he was giving the King's speech? Well the music was Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A Major, which underscored that moment perfectly, and created a transcendent, aesthestic moment. So try an opera for once in your life, it won't kill ya.)
I am hoping to contribute more over the next while to the CW, hopefully 2-3 times a month. As a writer, it's a nice break from other involving projects, providing me a clear, deadline-driven focus.
Now, back to the novel...
