Mavis Gallant's What Is To Be Done? -- the movie!

One of Linda Leith Publishing's fall books is Mavis Gallant's only play, What Is To Be Done? When our friends who run All Lit Up asked for ideas for blog posts, we put together a proposal we hope they'd go for in the "Character Study" category, imagining the play as a movie and having fun casting it. This all was Carmelita McGrath's work, and she packed it off last week. So now look what they've done. Those brilliant women have not only used the post, but have included a movie poster for it, with an image of Joe Stalin a cast to die for:

Il Trovatore at the Opéra de Montréal

I’ve reached the point where I will forgive an opera almost anything if the music is beautiful enough and there are one or two spectacular singers. Which is very much the case here, not only with Soprano Hiromi Omura’s Leonora, who has the entire audience in the palm of her hand, but also with the darker figure of Azucena, sung by the thrilling Italian mezzo Laura Brioli.
