A short drive up to St. Petersburg to visit friends and to see the Chihuly Museum of glass art - and walk across the street to see the glassblowing exhibit. Well worth spending an hour there seeing his work and seeing t...

“Pique Dame” at the Met — and at the Bolshoi

The formidable Norwegian soprano Lisa Davidsen, making her Metropolitan Opera debut in Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades, is right now New York’s most talked about opera singer. I caught the final performance in the run, on December 21 – and discovered myself mainly thinking about the Bolshoi Opera’s historic four-week New York season of 1975. – Joseph Horowitz

Not Celery

“Did you see my cardoons?” Mike pointed to a pile of leafless, longer celery. I have eaten cardoons, I remember, at an optimistic Sicilian-only restaurant in Manhattan, long- and quickly gone, and in one other place, forgotten. Never saw them in a market before, and the produce guy, who pretends to know me, was proud. I looked, touched, and didn’t buy, a cooking coward. Then I drove back. – Jeff Weinstein

Adoration of the Magi, Peter Paul Rubens

Adoration of the Magi, Peter Paul Rubens Link is to Wikimedia Commons; original is in the Royal Museum Antwerp. 17th century Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens’ multi-faceted penchant for drama is in evidence here, in the pyramidal arrangement of the figures — topped of by camel riders peering under the rafters — the great assortment of facial expressions, the flowing drapery of robes, and the dynamic poses of even the most static figures.
