Zubin Mehta Zubin Mehta was born in 1936 in Bombay and received his first musical education under his father’s Mehli Mehta’s guidance who was a noted concert violinist and the founder of the Bombay Symphony Orchestra. After a short period of pre-medical studies in Bombay, he left for Vienna in 1954 where he eventually entered the conducting programme under Hans Swarowsky at the Akademie für Musik. Zubin Mehta won the Liverpool International Conducting Competition in 1958 and was also a prize-winner of the summer academy at Tanglewood. By 1961 he had already conducted the Vienna, Berlin and Israel Philharmonic Orchestras and has recently celebrated 50 years of musical collaboration with all three ensembles. Zubin Mehta was Music Director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra from 1961 to 1967 and also assumed the Music Directorship of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in 1962, a post he retained until 1978. In 1969 he was appointed Music Adviser to the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and was made Musi ...

All he had to do out of high school was go in to the wildly successful business his family had developed over some seventy five years and he would have been in line to cash out royally, but instead he chose the life of song and dance,and proceeded to ride the range in the late seventies and throughout the eighties with clowns like yours truly, Bobby "The Clam" Martelli, George Sanchez and of course the ultimate showman (And ladies man) the late Robert Fasio. Stinky *** was revered all over the Midwest and he generally could be found holding court and making book at the old La Scala restaurant downtown on Meridian Street where he actually kept a change of ...

July 25, 1886, Giuseppina Morlacchi, widow of John "Texas Jack" Omohundro, died in Lowell, Massachusetts. Mlle. Morlacchi was born in Milan, Italy, in 1846. She began dancing in Genoa and danced at La Scala in Milan and toured in many other cities of Europe before coming to America where she introduced the Grand Gallop Can-Can to American audiences. Ned Buntline hired her in 1873, in Chicago, to help him groom the two rough frontier scouts, Buffalo Bill Cody and Texas Jack Omohundro for their roles in Scouts of the Prairie, the play Buntline had written in four hours on the arrival of the scouts in the big city. Along with Morlacchi came her manager, Arizona John Burke who was in love with the tiny dancer. She was not attracted to the burly and coarse manager and later press agent for Buffalo Bill's Wild West. Morlacchi was popular with American audiences by this time and many play critics wrote glowing descriptions of her appearance, helping to bring good houses to the fledgling actors, in their first at ...

OPERA SINGERS FROM THE PAST - MIGUEL FLETA Miguel Burró Fleta (1897 - 1938) was an Aragonese operatic tenor. Despite his short stage career, lasting from 1919 to 1935, Fleta has been described as one of the most significant Iberian opera singers of the 20th century. Among the important international venues at which he sang were La Scala, Milan, (in 1923-26) and the New York Metropolitan Opera (in 1923-25). Additionally, in 1926, he had the honour of creating the role of Calaf in Puccini's posthumously-premiered final opera, Turandot, at the insistence of La Scala's principal conductor, Arturo Toscanini. But this taxing dramatic role took him to the limit of his resources and he did not attempt it again. Fleta made his operatic debut in Trieste in 1919, having previously studied voice at the Madrid conservatory. Successful engagements in Rome followed, leading to his La Scala and Met debuts. He quit the Met in acrimonious circumstances, however, and the resultant legal action stopped him performing again ...

On Friday, May 9th I attended, after 36 years of season tickets, the last performance with the Florentine Opera. Of approximately 120 operas, it ended with a production of 'La Boheme'. Of those performances about 12, or maybe as many as 20, ended with a standing ovation of any duration. This last performance was befitting since Rodolfo, performed by Noah Stewart, an African American, was one of those operas. It was one such performance around 40 years ago that got me interest in opera, a special piano performance of 'Madama Butterfly' by the Skylight Theater with the incomparable Leontyne Price. This, by no means is the end... now it's on to La Scala and the opera houses of the world.

Hey, London musical theatre lovers! We'd like to invite you all to our very special evening, singing exquisite Richard Rodgers rarities with the renowned Nash Ensemble, conducted by West End veteran David White, in all-new orchestrations and soaking up the rarified air of the world-famous Wigmore Hall. I'll be there, along with Bill Burden (title role in CANDIDE at La Scala) and Louise Dearman, who I'm very excited to sing with for the first time (she's the only person yet to play BOTH lead roles in WICKED--a big talent!). The Wigmore is usually used for very posh recitals featuring the great and good from the opera world, so this is a real departure. The acoustic is justifiably famous for being darn near perfect, and the hall itself is an absolute jewel--this evening should be a treat! Please do book tickets soon---as it's a recital hall, it's quite small, less than 600 seats, so plan ahead to avoid disappointment! Please also feel free to share this invitation and post---I'm hoping to get the word a ...
