  • Pasa Reviews — I'm OK, you're OK: "Good People" at Santa Fe Playhouse

    We may all think we’re good people, but we’re probably not, is the takeaway from this production, a collaboration between Ironweed Productions and Santa Fe Playhouse. It’s a play about delusion, about how we think of ourselves despite our actions. 

  • Pasa Reviews – Old friends and a new acquaintance: Baroque Holy Week

    Santa Fe Pro Music Baroque Ensemble offered an evening of well-crafted delights in the latest installment of its annual Baroque Holy Week music-making. 

  • Pasa Reviews — Just au revoir: Santa Fe Symphony

    Steven Smith served as music director of the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus from 1999 through the end of last season and then slipped away quietly without the sort of salute one would have expected after 14 years in such a high-profile position. It finally arrived this past Sunday in the form of a musical celebration.

  • Pasa Reviews — Darkest after the Dawn: Vadym Kholodenko

    Vadym Kholodenko is the kind of pianist who gives Brahms a bad name. In his recital on April 1 at St. Francis Auditorium in the New Mexico Museum of Art, he played into the composer’s worst instincts, allowing the master to ramble on with the unmitigated gravity that inspired even the depressive composer Hugo Wolf to assert, “Er kann nicht jubeln” — “He is unable to rejoice.” 

  • Pasa Reviews — A unified force: Aspen Santa Fe Ballet

    That a 10-person dance troupe based in two small cities has the ability to attract and pay up-and-coming and established European and American choreographers is a testament to the directors, Tom Mossbrucker and Jean-Philippe Malaty, whose taste in dancers as well as choreographers is a brilliant balance between practicality (budget and scale) and vision.
