Yesterday I celebrated my 40th anniversary in Cincinnati (H.A. to Me), which makes me (besides older than I’d like to be) mindful of how much the city has changed for the better, and for how much we all have to be grateful…such as a bunch of cool stuff to fill up the week ahead! Get busy!

Marcus Küchle and Annalisa Pappano: RECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES

Marcus Kuchle and Annalisa Pappano

If it’s true, as they say, that opposites attract, Pappano and Küchle are living proof of it. He’s a champion of new music, of pushing – or pulling, perhaps – opera into the 21st century. She, on the other hand, is devoted to early music. For her, 16th- and 17th-century composers like Claudio Monteverdi, Richardo Rogniono and Jacopo Peri are not relics of past cultures. They are very much alive.
