Richmond Ballet Presents "TRIO" This Weekend At The Carpenter Theatre

The Richmond Ballet will be presenting TRIO this weekend (November 4-6) at the Carpenter Theatre, featuring three strikingly different ballets. “The Kingdom of the Shades” from Marius Petipa’s classic full-length ballet “La Bayadere” (music by Ludwig Minkus) will open the show, followed by Ma Cong’s “Lift the Fallen” with music by Max Richter and George Balanchine’s “Slaughter on Tenth Avenue” (music by Richard Rodgers and Hershy Kay).

Ooh, Baby, Ooh-ee - A New Book of Bob Dylan's Lyrics, 1961-2012

The news of Bob Dylan winning the Nobel prize for literature inspired me to check out 1967’s low-key but enduring John Wesley Harding, an album I had long overlooked. Many of the songs on JWH were already familiar, including All Along the Watchtower, but I was immediately struck by track 2. As I Went Out One Morning was a cut I had never heard before.

An Homage to Electric Issa

We’ll start this week’s World Music Show (10/29) with a tribute to a musician who plugged in the kamele N’goni and became known as ‘Electric Issa.” And we’ll explore other sounds from the African Continent, including Brazilian/Afro-folk songs. Plus, in hour two, it’ll Red Hot in the land of Rio. With all that, it’ll be a show worth the price of admission—but more on that in a moment.

A Bevy of Sound

Welcome one and all to the fabulous spectacle that is this week’s World Music Show (10/22). Ok, perhaps that’s over selling it a bit, but that could be because I’ve seen the playlist and I know that this week’s show will do its best to thrill and entertain you—or at least it’ll help you pass the time for a few hours on a Saturday night.
