Publick Musick explores Dido myth in season-opening concert

Publick Musick explores Dido myth in season-opening concert

Love and death

Dido, Queen of Carthage, is one of the most memorable women in ancient lore. Seduced and jilted by the Trojan War hero Aeneas, Dido took her own life rather spectacularly, building her own funeral pyre and stabbing herself as she lay on it. But Dido if was only a temporary inspiration to Aeneas, she proved to be a much more lasting inspiration for composers of the Baroque era, as Publick Musick's October 27 concert demonstrates.

Film preview: 'The Lighthouse'

Film preview: 'The Lighthouse'

"The Lighthouse" sits comfortably within the recent trend of films that plumb the psyches of men, and drudge up all manner of insanity. Lonely and horny, the characters alternate between seemingly wanting to tear each other to shreds, kiss, or violently screw. In its way, "The Lighthouse" is its own sort of love story.

Theater review: 'Detroit '67'

Theater review: 'Detroit '67'

While the story onstage may be fictional, the riots of 1967 were very real, and they are soberingly reminiscent of recent police brutality headlines. "Detroit '67" is not the most uplifting night out, but its strong performances, historical content, and a distinct relevance to current events make for an impactful experience.
