Fat Lady and the Whale: The Dallas Opera has launched a photo game called Moby on the Move to gear up for the premiere of Moby-Dick. It works kind of like that vacation gnome: download the whale, take your pix with him, and share. The Opera will post their fave pix each week. Meanwhile, in […]
PRAISES NOT SUNG: Were you like me on Sunday morning, reading your Dallas Morning News and rubbing your eyes after seeing the Dallas Opera taken to task by Scott Cantrell? Cantrell’s beef is that the DO was far too conservative in its programming for the 2010-11 season. Since Scott’s forgotten more about opera than I’ll […]
