Opera and ballet: More music on O'ahu

The O‘ahu music scene includes not only the jazz and symphonic sounds that were introduced in the last issue but also ballet and opera. The Hawai‘i Ballet Theatre annually performs Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker at the Leeward Community College Theatre in December (see schedule for dates and times). The ballet is based on the book The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Clara and her family celebrate Christmas Eve. She impatiently awaits her godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. Of course he has a surprise for her and her brother Fritz: two life-size dancing dolls! His gift to Clara, a beautiful Nutcracker, is the hit of the party. Fritz takes the nutcracker away from Clara and promptly breaks it. Later that night when everybody is already in bed, Clara sneaks back to the Christmas tree to check on him. She finds the inanimate dolls coming to life, sees strange creatures battling, and follows them into a land of snow, enchanted forests and, sweet treats. [More]

Dalecarlians: review

Beautiful winter landscapes, but a dirty slush road in the middle of it all: this is both how the movie Dalecarlians begins and ends, and it reflects the plot of the movie. In the beginning, everything seems nice, pretty, and fun, but as the film proceeds, it reveals the tragic and shadowy life of the people living in this small Swedish town. [More]
