  • Richard Strauss’ sixth collaboration with librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal, “Arabella,” contains all of the lushness one expects to hear from Strauss and has character depth and an enjoyable story, as well.
    The story, about a destitute Count who is trying to marry off his older daughter, has humor in it, but underneath the humor is a thick layer of social commentary.  Although not as popular as some of Strauss’ other operas, “Arabella” is charming and entertaining.

  • Jacqueline Kelly, author of the Newbery Honor Book, “The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate,” returns to Los Alamos to sign her book from 2-3 p.m. Aug. 5 at Otowi Station Bookstore.
    “We’re delighted that Jackie will be here again to introduce a new generation of readers to Calpurnia,” said Ellen Ben-Naim of Otowi Station Bookstore. “Young adults and adults are really captivated by this spunky, ambitious heroine.”

  • Keeping family traditions alive is the main reason they are handed down to younger generations. They can range from a skill to a trade, to heirlooms. In Shelton Hank Williams’ III (aka Hank 3) case, music has trickled down through the generations.
    His grandfather Hank Williams was a country western musician. His father, Hank Williams Jr. followed in those footsteps and brought his own form of “outlaw” country to the limelight. Hank 3 is paving his own way, however, mixing his country roots with punk and rock, making a kind of “hellbilly” fusion of diabolical country/punk/rock music.
