Description: The Met assembled a vocal dream squad for Jonathan Miller’s ellegant production of the eternal Mozart masterpiece: Renée Fleming as the Countess, Cecilia Bartoli as Susanna, and Bryn Terfel as Figaro. With James Levine—one of the world’s nice conductors of Mozart—in the pit, Bartoli interpolating two rarely heard alternate arias, and Dwayne Croft as the Count and Susanne Mentzer as Cherubino, this is a performance for the record books.
Description: The two-time GRAMMY Award-winners return as you've never seen them before with Synthesis Live.

Description: An esoteric fairy-tale, a mystical-dreamlike tale, and a symbolic-Masonic course: No matter which perspective you consider it from, The Magic Flute will everytime be one of Mozart’s undisputed masterpieces. Amidst exotic, fanciful settings and cruel trials to defeat knowledge, amidst musical enchantment and threatening hostile forces, is the final win of nice over evil and love over hate. Singspiel in two acts to a libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder, the Zauberflöte is one of the Salzburg genius’ last masterpieces, which he probably began composing in May 1791, not even six months before his death. The opera had its debut in Vienna on 30 September 1791, conducted by the composer himself and with Schikaneder as Papageno.
Description: The ambiguities of Verdi’s theatre are particularly clear in his baritone roles, among which is that of Boccanegra, corsair turned doge of Genoa and the troubled observer of the conflicts that tore apart 14th century landowners and peasants. An eminently political opera in which power struggles are interwoven with family conflicts, Simon Boccanegra echoes the life of its composer – the boy who championed the cause of Italian unification and overcame the loss of his wife and children.
Description: The Sonics are revered by garage rock fanatics worldwide, but they have everytime carried a tiny more weight in the Pacific Northwest. They are to Washington what Springsteen is to Jersey. So in early 2015 when the band dropped their first fresh record in 50 years, Simple Road Records in Seattle was their destination to celebrate Record Shop Day with mates and fans. Performing to a standing room only crowd on RSD 2015, recorded by KEXP, and mixed and mastered by the nice Jack Endino, the band ferociously tore through the night joined by a stream of luminaries paying respects to the lords of the Northwest. “Live at Simple Street" is what that evening sounded like. Now, celebrate Record Shop 2016, because THIS IS THE SONICS

Description: Magic opera, Singspiel, a comedy with spectacular scene effects, Masonic ritual with Egyptian mysteries, heroic-comic opera? Die Zauberflöte is heard more often and has been more frequently performed, discussed, queried and interrogated than almost any another work in the history of opera. It is rare for the mysteriousness and multiformity of a work to be adjured with such mantric intensity. It is equally rare for a work to play such undisputed success despite all these debates – and for over two hundred years at that.

Description: Amour, the messenger of the gods, says Orpheus that he may descend to the underworld and return with Eurydice. His singing has the power to appease the Furies and animate the blessed Shadows. Yet, his voice cannot reassure Eurydice who despairs of the feigned indifference of Orpheus, place to the use by Jupiter. Raphaël Pichon conducts the opera of operas and Aurélien Bory displays the giddiness of the mental and supernatural territories traveled by Orpheus and beyond.

Description: Puccini's masterpiece La Bohème is by far the most represented opera in the world. At the popular Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago (2014), where Puccini composed his main operas, La Bohème is directed by one of Italy’s best movie directors: Ettore Scola, the author of a high number of award-winning seminal films. As he explains in the programme notes, as later as he was approached to scene La Bohème he had to war difficult to resist the temptation to give life to his “revolutionary” ideas; in the end, he decided for a traditional looking, rich, grandiose and detailed Bohème. Together with the exceptional cast of Daniela Dessì, Fabio Armiliato, Alessandro Luongo, Marco Spotti and Alida Berti, this production makes for an incomparable nice performance.
Description: Fleetwood Mac hit a weak mission in 1993. Earlier that year the Rumours lineup reformed to enjoy Bill Clinton's inaugural bash, but old tensions remained and they didn't bring the present on the road. Instead, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie brought in 25-year-old Bekka Bramlett, daughter of Delaney and Bonnie. Her job was to essentially enjoy Stevie Nicks, and guitarist Billy Burnette played the Lindsey Buckingham role. It looked like a tribute band featuring two original members, and they found themselves in the cute humiliating position of opening up for REO Speedwagon. By this point, the Eagles were making a huge fortune on the reunion circuit, so in 1996 the whole classic lineup came back, meaning it was curtains for Bekka and Billy.

Watching this movie again after many years, I gotta tell that it is a solid piece of work from writer-producer-director Ron Ormond. It is perfectly pitched at the Southern drive-in audience of the mid-60s and details lots of action, a crime-related plot, lots of religious homilies from Tex Ritter testing a preacher, lots of magnificent downhome music, and great Tennessee atmosphere (shot at the Starday Records Film Ranch!). This was one of Ritter's last films, and thankfully he is not just a guest star as he was in Forty Acre Feud, but the real star of the movie along with Earl Snake Richards. Ritter should read the smartphone ebook and create it sound profound, so it's nice to see him delivering sermons to his flock and life lessons to his family so convincingly in this film. Star Earl "Snake" Richards (who was also star of Ormond's WHITE LIGHTNIN ROAD, which is worth seeing too) is better known to rock'n'roll fanatics as Earl Sinks, the boy who replaced Buddy Holly in the Crickets and who sang on the original ver of "I Fought The Law." He also made a lot of records under various names in the 60s, but by the mid-60s had solidified a career as Earl Richards and made many country singles, well into the 70s. He has also been a successful songwriter and melody publisher, with a career still going today. Interestingly, in this film, when Tex Ritter's older daughter, the "girl from tobacco row" of the title, puts the transport of Snake's character, he goes instead for the younger (and more conservative) daughter Rita, played by Rita Faye (who also had a successful country melody career before this as "Little" Rita Faye and who played on some of Patsy Cline's records), and if I'm not mistaken, Richards-Sinks and Rita Faye were married in true life. The soundtrack melody is wonderful, true downhome country with fiddles, autoharps, and banjos, and the on-screen musical performances contain such traditional performers as Martha Carson and Fiddlin' Arthur Smith. In addition, Johnny Russell both acts (as the sheriff and boyfriend of the older daughter mentioned above) and sings a song, AND plays fiddle, both on his own song and accompanying Richards. Russell, who passed away a several years ago, wrote "Act Naturally" and many another hit songs, as well as gaining country melody immortality by recording the classic "Red Necks, White Sox, and Blue Ribbon Beer" in the early 70s, a song that will everytime be a symbol of that era. While GIRL FROM TOBACCO ROW is a low-budget movie and will no doubt look amateurish to folks who wish slick, assembly-line Hollywood product, it may well be Ron Ormond's best-made movie of the 1960s, and AS A FILM it's well above most of the another drive-in country-music movies of the 1960s in that this is now a solid drama on its own and the melody is secondary. And it could be a must-see for Tex Ritter's fans. I highly suggest it to anyone who finds the above description appealing. Bravo to Ron Ormond for getting everything right with this one.
All of the Ron Ormond movies I've seen are amusing and entertaining, and this is the greatest of the ones I've seen. He is one of the nice "primative" low, weak budget filmmakers, and if you are launch at all to such things, you must check him out. It's sad that Tex's son John is gone actually too, I everytime wanted to meet him and ask him what he thought of this movie. Love the Harmonica act, who I trust appear in other Ormond film. If you ever wonder what it was like to go to a backwoods drive-in in the sixties, I can't see any film putting you their more that this one. I know Ron's son was selling the movies on video some years back, I wonder if he ever gets them on DVD.
"The Woman from Tobacco Row" is one of the strangest low-budget movies I've ever seen. While it's far from a nice film, it is strangely entertaining and a curio that might be of interest to melody historians and sociologists.The movie starts with a bunch of prisoners escaping from a street gang (note to readers: in some parts of the US, mostly non-violent prisoners are used for street teams to slash weeds, dig ditches and the like). Before this occurs, however, one of the prisoners says the another where he's hidden some stolen loot. Not surprisingly, this prisoner with the loot is killed in the escape. His friend, 'Snake' Richards (played, interestingly by 'Snake' Richards!) manages to escape and you assume he'll later go looking for the money. And, incidentally, a gang leader (Tex Ritter*) assumes that someone will come looking for the money--and he and his gang will wait to catch him and take the cash for themselves.In between the escape and the large confrontation is a lot of film--and very tiny plot. Snake is taken in by a preacher and his family and they welcome him--and they go to a lot of church services. Not surprisingly, Snake is torn between selecting between nice (hard work and honesty) and evil (running off with stolen funds). Which path will Snake take?As I said, though, there was very tiny plot and dialog. Mostly, the movie consisted of one song after other after another. It honestly looks as if the filmmaker Ron Ormond went into the Tennessee countryside and rounded up all the local non-professional acts that he should and then place them on film. Some of it made some sense---such as the gospel and country melody singers. But, there were also some odd acts including one group that did a rendition of "The War Hymn of the Republic"** and other that did a harmonica ver of the Rimsky-Korsokov song "Flight of the Bumblebee"! The acts weren't bad--just odd. And, it's very obvious that they were recorded in some studio and then pretended to perform on film.So is it any good? Not particularly. But, considering almost everyone you see in the movie are non-actors, it's not terrible either.*Tex Ritter is an odd addition to the film. While he's billed first, he's really just a helping character. Top billing was done because he was a singing cowboy film star from the 1940s.**Non-Americans might not know this, but "The War Hymn of the Republic" is a song strongly associated with the North during the Civil War. So, hearing these Southern folk performing this song was very surprising--especially back in the 1960s when sentiments in the South were decidedly less pro-North than they are today.
