Landmark Musicals’ latest is well-acted and well-sung
By Christie Chisholm
A Little Night Music is a show that will likely appeal to more mature audiences. Maybe it’s the tone of the show, which is surprisingly wholesome given the subject matter. Maybe it’s the near-constant, often operatic singing. In either case this one’s probably not for a thirtysomething crowd. That said, Landmark Musicals has done a fine job with it. While not all the actors are fantastic, there aren’t any sore thumbs that stick out, and a handful of them are obvious pros.
Former musicians of the NMSO announce the New Mexico Philharmonic
By Summer Olsson
Even before the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra filed for bankruptcy on May 10, its musicians were looking ahead and making plans. They resolved to keep orchestra music alive in New Mexico. Shortly after the closing of NMSO was announced, its former musicians made an announcement of their own: the formation of the New Mexico Philharmonic.
Now. Let's get NMSO on some lists* with the New York Philharmonic and New Mexico Ballet Co noted alongside the Russian National Ballet, and we'll be all set.
* I could make these lists. And I've thought about it. But maybe it would be more thrilling for ABQ if someone outside of the city were to recognize our treasure chest o' glorious cultural riches. Who do you know at the Washington Post? Get on it!
