Shakespeare at Glimmerglass

By: ELI JACOBSON | The Glimmerglass Festival this summer is presenting four operas by Bellini, Wagner, Handel, and Cole Porter, all on Shakespearean themes. A unit set for all four operas by John Conklin presents a curved series of arches with an upper walkway similar in design to sketches of the Old Globe Theater. However, three of the four operas are really only Shakespearean by association. Comment

Gillette's Edge

By: DAVID NOH | Anita Gillette has always exuded an instant onstage warmth and empathy, reminiscent of such great character actresses as Eve Arden or Fay Bainter. You can see her with Jamie Farr in "Flamingo Court" (New World Stages; 212-239-6200). Comment

Emperor Didn't Strike Back

By: DAVID SHENGOLD | On August 4 at the Rose Theater -- which, at least from its central seats, offered wonderful acoustics -- the Mostly Mozart Festival presented its namesake's penultimate opera, 1791's "La Clemenza di Tito." The Met had given us a very fine "Clemenza" under Harry Bicket in May, but it was salutary to hear this wonderful music played by a "historically informed performance" ensemble. The performance was highly enjoyable -- though not fully deserving of the vociferous standing ovations it was given. Comment

Syrup the Natural Way

By: ANDREY HENKIN | Shortly after The Stone opened in April 2005, it established itself not only as a new space for creative music in a city that desperately needed it, but also as one of the most hellish spots at which to see music during the summer. With no air conditioning in its first months and a policy of no liquids that would put the Transportation Security Administration to shame, audience members wilted to the soundtrack of the avant-garde.
