The Washington Post

Sunday links: Opera in the movies; Trio Mediaeval’s latest CD.

In Sunday’s Washington Post:

Opera as Soundtrack: some thoughts about opera’s appearances in mainstream film, inspired by the recent miniseries Mildred Pierce. (And who else noticed that “Casta diva” on that soundtrack used a different singer? Does Edita Gruberova really sound like Sumi Jo?)

CD review: A Worcester Ladymass. Trio Mediaeval’s latest recontextualization of early music reinscribes women back in their own tradition.

Anne Midgette came to the Washington Post in 2008, when she consolidated her various cultural interests under the single title of chief classical music critic. She blogs at The Classical Beat.
