Opera Preview: Tales of Hoffman

By the mid-1870s Jacques Offenbach’s career as “The King of Operetta” was over. In addition he was ill and getting worse. Yet he wanted to write a full-length “real opera” before he died. The result was The Tales of Hoffman, a 3 Act fantasy opera based on stories of E.T.A. Hoffmann. Offenbach lavished some of the most beautiful and imaginative melodies he ever wrote on Olympia, the “Mechanical Doll” or Antonia, the consumptive soprano who sings herself to death, or the basso-devil who uses a magic diamond to steal the souls of his victims. Sadly, Hoffman died four months before the first performance of his Tales of Hoffman in 1881 and did not live to see its world-wide success which continues to this day.

Aaina - South Asian Women's Festival 2014

Tasveer is proud to present the 9th Aaina, a South Asian Women's festival at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, April 25 – 27, 2014. One of the highlights and very successful features of Aaina is Yoni Ki Baat, a South Asian adaptation of The Vagina Monologues. Yoni Ki Baat (YKB) is a collection of frank, authentic, bold, and powerful stories that are sourced, written, and narrated by local South Asian women. Yoni Ki Baat 2014 is co-directed by Alpa Dave and Rumela Ganguly.

Now, nearly a decade later, it’s a celebrated event that sells out every year.

The Art of the Jitterbug

Attention hep cats! Big band jazz grew up in the nightclubs and dance halls of New York and Chicago as high-energy dance music.
