A genius so assured he could write operas faster than secretaries could copy them, a genius so original even Bach cribbed his melodies, a genius so unconventional that his conflicting roles -- Catholic priest and creative renegade; cultural iconoclast and establishment favorite -- still shock people today, Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741) remains an artist without equal. Now he comes to exuberant life in the new drama The Red Priest of Venice at the Shelton Theater. Today best known for The Four Seasons, Vivaldi was one of the most brilliant figures of the baroque period, a composer whose life was as passionate and stormy as his music.

I think she was being rather harsh, but it did have a bit of a high school production feel to it. And yet, it was fun. Definitely much better than any of the movies out there. A pleasant evening at Goldstar prices and you have the feeling that you are supporting a Mom and Pop enterprise, which is nice.
