  • Agatha Christie's whodunit premieres at LATL on Halloween

    One by one, until they are all gone: the story is of 10 people who find themselves trapped on an island. All have some guilt on their hands, and one at a time they begin to die. The story is set in late 1930s in Devon, a small island off the coast of England.
    Los Alamos Little Theater presents the Agatha Christie whodunit, “And Then There Were None” beginning on Halloween night and continues through Nov. 22.
    This is the second Agatha Christie show for director Dennis Powell. According to Powell, Agatha Christie is an incredibly interesting and creative author.
    Christie is half American, as her father was a New York stockbroker. As the youngest of three children she was doted on, and when of age she was sent to several finishing schools in Paris. Ultimately, she authored 80 detective novels and several romance novels under the pen name of Mary Westmacott.
    Her plots are masterfully crafted, and her book “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd” was voted the best all-time crime novel by the Crime Writers Association. Her book “And Then There Were None” is one of the best selling novels of all time.
    Despite getting the clues, readers (or viewers) often are left guessing as to “who did it” until the final denouement.

  • Opera's Young Voices to entertain Fuller Lodge

    Music lovers of all ages are invited to Fuller Lodge to hear Young Voices from the Santa Fe Opera. The show is a gift from the Los Alamos Opera Guild of The Guilds of The Santa Fe Opera, Inc.
    For one hour, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Nov. 9, the young voices of the opera will perform.
    Now in its eighth season, Young Voices is an audition-based program of The Santa Fe Opera, created to teach, coach and nurture vocal talent in high school students from across New Mexico.
    Fifteen sudents, accepted by audition, received weekly voice lessons and coachings. The faculty is comprised of noted mezzo-soprano and stage director Kathleen Clawson, pianist Kirt Pavitt, and the head of the opera’s music staff, Robert Tweten.
    Two members, baritone Devon McCleskey and soprano Lauren Partin, both residents of Los Alamos, will sing solos and selections from opera, accompanied by Kirt Pavitt, who will also perform piano solos. Meet both Karen Henderson, the local guild president and Kyle Gray from the Santa Fe Opera staff to learn about educational programs, such as “Opera Makes Sense” and additional community concerts offered around the state.
    For a fifth year, Young Voices welcomes Paul Roth as accompanist. Kirt Pavitt and Kathleen Clawson are co-directors of Young Voices.

  • Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra concert will be All American

    The Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra will present its Fall Concert under the direction of local composer and conductor, Ted Vives. Vives is the conductor of the Los Alamos Community Winds, whom recently gained praise from the American Prize national music award. The LA Community Winds earned third place.
    This year’s symphony will be an “All American” program that will demonstrate the diversity of American music, just like the diversity of the American population.
    The show starts at 7 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Crossroads Bible Church.
    The first half of the program will highlight patriotic music with Morton Gould’s “American Salute,” show music with Henry Mancini’s “Themes From ‘Victor Victoria’” and ballet music with the “Paul Bunyan Suite” by William Bergsma.
    The second half of the program will feature the Symphony No. 2 by George Whitefield Chadwick.
    It is the first full symphony written by an American composer that was published and it “fully uses the sounds of America, put in the framework of a symphony.” For the 60-plus musicians in the orchestra the work has been a challenge as no one was familiar it. Vives and the 60-plus musician have expressed how delighted they were that everything has come together so well.

  • Music & marionettes highlight concert

    The Los Alamos Concert Association announces a collaboration between a pianist and a marionette theater that will take place on Nov. 1 at Duane Smith Auditorium. The show starts at 7 p.m.
    Pianist Orion Weiss will perform works by Schumann and Debussy with the Salzburg Marionette Theater providing a visualization of the stories suggested by the music.
    “This performance is a piano recital enhanced by the artistry of the Marionettes,” said Ann McLaughlin, LACA artistic director. “Adults should not imagine that this is fare with appeal only for children. And parents can use this as a perfect opportunity to introduce their young folks to “grown up” music. We expect this performance to be sold out, so we recommend getting your tickets early.”
    The performance in Los Alamos represents a departure for the Salzburg Marionette Theatre. Noted for productions of complete operas, this program turns instead to ballet. Two short ballets will be featured. Claude Debussy’s “La Boite a Joujoux” (“The Toy Box”) and “Papillon” (“Butterflies”) by Robert Schumann. Between the two ballets, Weiss will perform additional works by Schumann, Blumenstuck from Op.19 and Novelett from Opus 21.
    The program will run about 95 minutes and includes an intermission.

  • Celebrate TV show that began film incentives in N.M.

    Sci-Fi fans and the Santa Fe community are welcome to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first domestic television series shot in New Mexico.
    A 20th anniversary screening of the television show “Earth 2” will be 6 p.m. Nov. 8 at Jean Cocteau Cinema. 
 

    TV Director Janet Davidson and The New Mexico Film Foundation announce that a screening of Earth 2 (Amblin/Universal 1994-1995) will be at the Jean Cocteau Theater courtesy of the owner, “Game of Thrones” writer George R.R. Martin. 
    The screening is a tribute to local crew members who worked on the series. Proceeds for this screening will go to the New Mexico Film Foundation.
    Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales will proclaim Nov. 8 as “EARTH 2 Day” in Santa Fe, prior to the screening to recognize the pioneering series that helped initiate New Mexico’s film incentives. 
    Twenty-two episodes of the series were shot in and around Santa Fe 20 years ago. It was also the first professional film to use Garson Stages in Santa Fe.
