I’m excited to announce that I’m contributing to TheUtahReview.com, a new site about food, arts and entertainment in Utah. I write alongside some of the most impressive writers in the state, whom I really admire, so it’s quite an honor. Check out the The Utah Review here, especially the events calendar.
My first post on The Utah Review is about Utah Opera’s production of Turandot. (Hint :: it was phenomenal!) Here’s a little snippet:
Love, passion and death are guarantees in opera and Turandot is no exception. It’s the tale of a cold-hearted princess who requires suitors to answer a series of riddles in order to win her hand in marriage–but a wrong answer results in death. The opera is extravagant on several levels, with a massive cast, an elaborate set and haltingly beautiful music to accompany the dramatic story. Utah Opera is performing Turandot all week after a successful opening night on Saturday that ended in a standing ovation from the crowd.
The rest of my review on Utah Opera Presents Turandot is here.
