'Horse-mad' Reviewer loved the Tempel Lipizzans

TempelLipizzans-leap.jpg

**** Highly Recommended **** Growing up, like many other tweens and teens, I was horse-mad. I read every book about horses I could get my hands on, and I think I saw every movie about horses ever made. Ever since I saw Disney’s 1963 movie, “The Miracle of the White Stallions”, I’ve wanted to see the Tempel Lipizzans, so I was thrilled when I got an invitation to a performance. Don’t expect anything flashy or splashy, just beautiful well-trained white horses doing what they do best. 4 BIG Spotlights

Joffrey Ballet’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” is Magnificent

**** Highly Recommended **** The Joffrey Ballet’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” is magnificent. If you’re a ballet traditionalist, it might not be the ballet for you. It’s abstract, avant-garde and maybe a bit confusing, but it fascinated me from start to finish. 4 Spotlights

"Il Pigmalione and Rita" - Review by Jeffrey Leibham

Il Pigmalione & Rita-Pigmalion.jpg

****HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**** Chicago Opera Theater has devised a brilliant concept for its third and final production of the 2017/2018 season. They have chosen to present two works of Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti. The first is "Il Pigmalione" which was the first opera that Donizetti composed followed by "Rita" which was one of the very last. Both are one act operas that are being performed in Chicago for the very first time. In the course of two hours you get to hear how advanced Donizetti's sound became over the course of his career. It is truly remarkable that Donizetti composed nearly 70 operas in his lifetime, considering that he perished at the age of 51. 4 BIG SPOTLIGHTS
