  • Movie review: Keeping ballet alive in a creepy sort of way

    When the credits appeared on the movie screen for “Black Swan,” I turned to my sister with my best “shocked and amazed” face. She whispered to me, “I’m glad I never danced in Swan Lake.”
    Indeed. This classic ballet takes a complete psychotic turn in the movie. Yet, despite the horrible hallucinations and the terrible paranoia, “Black Swan” is fabulous. And I am not going nuts here.

  • Story inspires opera production

    The Santa Fe Opera and University of New Mexico School of Fine Arts have embarked on a joint production of a new children’s opera.  The work will be performed in late 2011 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque and the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe.  
    The American composer Stephen Paulus is writing the opera, based on the children’s story, “Shoes for Santo Niño,” by Peggy Pond Church.   Andrea Fellows Walters, the Opera Director of Education and Outreach, is the librettist.

  • Philbin's decision to leave 'Live!'

    NEW YORK — Within moments after Regis Philbin caught viewers off-guard with the news that he’ll be leaving his talk show, the guessing game had begun: Who will replace him?
    Maybe “Survivor” host Jeff Probst? Mark Consuelos, hubby of Regis’ co-host, Kelly Ripa? Golden Globes bad boy Ricky Gervais? Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from “Jersey Shore”?
    You kidding? Who can ever replace Reege?

    Neil agreed Tuesday to plead guilty to misdemeanor driving under the influence when he appears before a Las Vegas judge on Jan. 26, said Tess Driver, an aide to Clark County District Attorney David Roger.
    Neil’s publicist, Jill Siegel, released a statement on Neil’s behalf.

  • 'Social Network' big winner at Golden Globes

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — It seems only fitting that, at a Golden Globes ceremony where the host humorously insulted nearly every A-lister in the room, the big winner was a movie about a guy who riles up everyone on campus with his new and invasive website.
    And that’s exactly what Ricky Gervais, and “The Social Network,” did Sunday night.
