Sometimes the most profound way to talk about important issues is to sing about them -- just ask composers like Puccini or Wagner who weaved contemporary concerns throughout their seemingly "ageless" works. The Canticle of the Black Madonna is the latest entry in the great tradition of operas that explore challenging issues with breathlessly beautiful music. Set in Louisiana in 2010, The Canticle chronicles an American soldier's return to his wife and home -- where he confronts not only the Gulf oil spill, but the equally profound consequences of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Lush and stirring, the beautifully-staged production ultimately confirms the healing power of love. Portland's Newmark Theatre will host the world premiere of this superb new opera (in English) from composer Ethan Gans-Morse and librettist Tiziana DellaRovere. Learn More

Had never been to the Magenta Theater before. It was "cozy." Seats relatively comfortable. The usher couldn't figure out the seating chart, so sent people to the wrong seats. Some people had paid a bit more for center seats, but the section wasn't full, so the ushers let people who had not paid the upgrade sit in the front row, center.
Cast was good, though their accents failed a bit in the last scene. It was a fun play, and there were some moving moments, as well as lots of hilarity. Set was good, costumes appropriate. Kind of a "folksy, small-town" experience compared to Portland's overpriced venues. Overall, a nice community theatre experience. I'll try some of their other offerings.
