Eugene Onegin on the Metropolitan Opera’s 2013-14 Opening Night

Posted November 23, 2013 by Ellen Gilmer

The MET Opera’s opening night performance of Deborah Warner’s production of Eugene Onegin, Tchaikovsky’s dynamic and passionate opera, on September 23, 2013, retained much of its inherent lyrical beauty and expansive grandeur despite the sparse, utilitarian aspects of some of the overall production stage designs. There was criticism of the crowded quality of sets during the waltz and other scenes involving dance and movement by the cast. However, if any aspect of staging tended toward lessening or limiting the magnitude of the production’s overall effectiveness, this was completely overcome by the excellent vocal range, expression, color and delivery of the opera’s principal singers.

Swiss Fête Fédérale des Sonneurs de cloches

Posted September 13, 2011 by IMPress Archives

The veneration of Swiss cows as a source of life is an integral part of the Swiss culture, economy and international reputation for its treasured by-products from cows such as the 100s of types of cheeses and, of course the invention of the Swiss “milk chocolate” with which the whole world is familiar. There is a proliferation everywhere in Switzerland of the black and white Swiss cow hide motif on many articles for the home such as dishes, tea pots, tea towels, toys and an unlimited number of other objects. And interestingly enough, these are not just souvenirs for the tourists.
