Met Opera Auditions- Western Region Finals- Zipper Hall

This past Sunday was yet another afternoon filled with wonderful talent. Opera Singers from across the Western Region vied for a chance to sing on the Met Stage at auditions held at the Colburn School’s Zipper Hall. Soprano Julia Metzler garnered the coveted first place! Congratulations! Other standouts included the poised, charming, and vocally impressive Katherine Beck who garnered audience acclaim for her rendition of Rossini’s “Una Voce Poco Fa” from the Barber of Seville. Tenor Brian Michael Moore was another audience favorite at the ripe old age of 25. These young singers give hope to the future of opera. Bravi!

“Taking Shape: Degas as Sculptor” at the Norton Simon- a MUST SEE exhibit

Taking Shape: Degas as Sculptor A MUST SEE exhibit at the Norton Simon By Leticia Marie Sanchez Stepping into the Norton Simon Museum for a new exhibition, the foresight of collector Norton Simon never ceases to impress me. Last year, perusing the sea of Picassos for the States of Mind exhibition, I felt fortunate to have the opportunity to delve into myriad iterations of Picassos work and thereby his creative process due to the deep collection acquired by Norton Simon. This month’s exhibition Taking Shape: Degas as Sculptor once again felt like a seemingly boundless collection of a single artist, this time Edgar Degas.  With the exception of one loan by the Getty Museum, Norton Simon’s massive collection of Degas’ sculpture, drawing, and painting comprised the entire exhibition. A deep collection affords a viewer a rich window into the of the art of

Two MUST SEE EXHIBITS: “Giovanni Bellini” and “Sacred Landscapes” at the Getty Center

 By Leticia Marie Sanchez Imagine being able to teleport yourself through time and space to imagine life as a spiritual Venetian noble in the 15th Century. Or as a believer in 15th Century Bruges. Two intriguing exhibits at the Getty Center allow museum goers to take those journeys. Firstly, Giovanni Bellini: Landscapes of Faith in Renaissance Venice offers insight into the work of a Venetian master. What is astounding about this exhibit is that it is the first monographic exhibition in America devoted to Giovanni Bellini. This gifted and prolific artist, who when he was already in his seventies, was praised by Albrecht Durer as “still the best in the art of painting” despite the fact that Titian and Giorgione were already on the scene. In one room, viewers are fortunate to be able to view Bellini masterpieces loaned from
