A thriller comes to Colorado Music Festival

Star operatic baritone Samuel Ramey will be a guest artist for Bartk’s ‘Bluebeard’s Castle’

By Peter Alexander
Jean-Marie Zeitouni, music director of the Colorado Music Festival (CMF), makes Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle sound almost like a Hollywood horror movie. “The musical score is warning about danger,” he says of the one-act opera, which he will conduct as part of a Festival Orchestra concert Thursday and Friday, July 23 and 24, in the Chautauqua Auditorium. The concert, titled “Beyond Fairy Tales,” will conclude with a concert performance of the opera. Also on the program is Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, as arranged by the composer in 1919.

Talk about passion

Morrissey's never one to shy away from how he feels... about anything

By Kyle Eustice
"Humor is a very personal thing,” Morrissey said. “But I’m thankful that the people who consider me to be depressing are always in themselves very dull, whereas those who understand my humor are always very bright people.” Morrissey’s tone and delivery is always a bit tongue-in-cheek, although there is normally a harsh truth in what he is saying. He says things most people only dream of saying in the most pompous way possible, but somehow it’s endearing.
