‘Les Contes d’Hoffmann’ Production for the MET Opera 2017-18 Season

Posted November 19, 2017 by Ellen Gilmer

The current Metropolitan Opera production of Les Contes d’Hoffman from composer Jacques Offenbach (1819-1880), is expertly performed by an outstanding cast and the MET orchestra, led by conductor Johannes Debus. This production is richly empowered by the vibrant, excellent vocal and dramatic artistry of principal singers, Vittorio Grigolo, Erin Morley, Anita Hartig, Oksana Volkova, Laurent Naouri, Tara Erraught and Christophe Mortagne. This last opera from Offenbach combines a vibrant and varied score and libretto with engaging stage sets and three diverse storylines to present a production that is at once embodied with exotic elegance, blatant grotesqueness, depths of heartache and light-hearted humor. Genuine beauty is offset, then balanced with ill-intended sentiments, jealousies and calculated rivalries.

Bodega Nanni: A Family Tradition

Posted October 12, 2017 by Rudi Goldman

An insightful story of a passion for natural winemaking by a small Argentine producer with over a century of family tradition. My wife and I first discovered the delightful taste and aromas of Torrontes wine in the cafes and restaurants on the square in the sleepy village of Cafayate, Argentina. Comparing the various Torrontes from local producers, although it was a difficult choice, we decided that the Nanni Torrontes had the most appeal to us. This dry, but fruity wine’s aromas provided a delightful nose and surprising finish.

“Looking to discover what made Bodega Nanni’s Torrontes so special, I decided to make a short film about them. What I discovered was a family with a local winemaking tradition that dates back over one hundred years.”
Videographer Rudi Goldman
