Pandemic Is Spurring Operatic Innovation

The covid-19 crisis has forced a sacrifice of so much of what makes opera so powerful — the massive casts, booming orchestras, elaborate staging and singular thrill of being present to experience it all. But it also presents an unlikely opportunity for the form itself to get more intimate and accessible, reach new audiences and evolve in different directions. It’s an art form in survival mode, and it may well come back stronger. – Washington Post

Sotheby’s Deeply In Debt, Tries To Reopen And Cut Costs

To date, the company’s outstanding debt stands at $467 million (plus interest), according to the latest documents.

Archaeologists Discover Ancient Egyptian Funeral Workshop

When at last the chamber was empty, the team was surprised to discover that it wasn’t a tomb. The room had a raised, table-like area and shallow channels cut into the bedrock along the base of one wall. In one corner, a barrel-sized bowl was filled with charcoal, ash, and dark sand.

The clues suggested that the chamber had been a mummification workshop, complete with an indust...
