Valentine's Day Card Contest

For seven years now, we've entreated you to send us your valentines—bloody, funny and otherwise. And every year we're amazed at what can be expressed by doilies, cardboard and what we hope is fake blood. Can't say Alibi readers are lacking in creativity.

You've got a few more days to get your entries in before the Feb. 1 deadline, when they must be in our hands by 5 p.m. Send your valentine (one per person, please), no larger than 8-by-11 inches, to 2118 Central SE, PMB 151, Albuquerque, N.M. 87106. Or you can drop it off at our offices at 413 Central NW. Valentines will not be returned, so don't bug me. The lovelorn winners will be featured in our Feb. 11 issue.

Sing. Sing a Song.

The New Mexico Symphony Orchestra is back with a bang, adding opera to its repertoire. On Saturday, Jan. 30, and Sunday, Jan. 31, the NMSO and the NMSO Chorus present a veritable smorgasbord of operatic offerings, including a dash of Mozart and a heaping helping of Verdi. Saturday's performance will be held at 6 p.m. at Legacy Church (7201 Central NW), and Sunday's will be at 2 p.m. at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW). Tickets for N-M-S-Opera! run $10 to $60, with various discounts available. Go to or call the box office at 881-8999.

Blog, Blog, Blog

If you've been to lately, you'll have noticed there's been a lot of arts activity on our blog. As part of our coverage of the Revolutions International Theatre Festival, our website features performance reviews and wrap-ups by me and contributing writer extraordinaire Julia Mandeville. In addition, you can read Revolutions Artistic Director Summer Olsson's take on the backstage scoop. Once this particular festival is over, though, our coverage won't stop. We'll continue to cover arts and lit events, and the people who make them possible, on our blog. Stop by, read, log on and comment. See ya there, virtually speaking.
