Mozart’s opera Cosi fan tutte, translated as “women are like that,” follows two beautiful sisters and their adventures with men. When it premiered back in 1790, no one lifted an eyebrow at its subject matter, but 19th and 20th century operagoers considered it too vulgar.

Life on pointe

Young ballerinas work hard and dream big

By Devin Blomquist
Young ballerinas are dispersed throughout the building, stretching their long, lean limbs, lacing up their satin pointe shoes and sitting patiently as mothers, friends or teachers apply finishing touches on hair and makeup at the Youth America Grand Prix Regional Semi-Finals in Denver in late February. Some stand against railings and cabinets at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts to balance themselves while going through the motions of their upcoming performances. First position, second position, third position, fourth. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

Storytelling takes the stage

Local Lab pares down the spectacle to let the raw, experimental core of theater shine through

By Elizabeth Miller
Theater, at its core, is storytelling. It’s a gathering together to hear another’s life story, to see ourselves in those stories in ways that make our own stories make a little more sense and to experience that catharsis as part of an audience. At Local Lab, the three-day festival of new plays, the experience is stripped back to just the stories. Actors read from scripts still in hand. Playwrights take chances and venture experiments they wouldn’t in the presence of New York City’s daunting theater scene.

Not many people know what it’s like to walk on the moon. Luckily, the Distinguished Speakers Board is bringing Buzz Aldrin to Boulder to enlighten the rest of us. Aldrin was the lunar module pilot on the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. He was the second person to walk on the moon, following Neil Armstrong’s one small step for man.

Fecking brilliant

Miners and McDonagh are a cracking match

By Gary Zeidner
If you’ve never seen the sadly short-lived British TV series Father Ted (R.I.P. Dermot Morgan), you owe it to yourself to give it a look. It’s a screamingly funny show set on the fictitious Craggy Island off Ireland’s western coast. It is also the spiritual sibling to Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan, which takes place on a real island in the same general vicinity.
