Leonard Bernstein Awkwardly Turns the Screws on Tenor Jose Carreras While Recording West Side Story (1984)

What have we here? Evidence that the Maestro is a monster? Or a behind the scenes reminder that Arrested Development’s wannabe actor Tobias Fünke is not too far off base when he says that to make it in “this business of show, you have to have the heart of an angel and the hide... of an elephant.” Both? Neither? Any way you slice it, the recording session above is not for your typical cast album. West Side Story, with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, and lyrics b...

MOTO PHOTOS: 2019 MBE Show, Verona, Italy

Written by Andrew Jones When you think about it, Italy having one of the world’s biggest and best bike shows makes total sense. Like Japan with their bullet trains and the Swiss being so good at watches, motorcycles seem to be at the very heart of the Italian psyche. And one visit to a show like Motor Bike Expo 2019 only drives the point home. It’s not wall-to-wall factory bikes or a bunch of business types ‘shifting units’ and exchanging email addresses. It’s honest-to-goodness, grass-roots ...

Shawn Porter faces Yordenis Ugas and hopes for different title outcome in Carson

Shawn Porter is a two-time welterweight world champion. He’s never been praised as much as other champions in his division, so when he lost his first title to Kell Brook via majority decision in 2014 at what was then StubHub Center (and is now Dignity Health Sports Park), the boxing world wasn’t shocked. Nearly two years later, Porter challenged Keith Thurman for his welterweight title and lost a narrow unanimous decision at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. That seemed to solidify the notion that wh...

Verona: The perfect destination for Shakespeare fans

Did you know that almost a third of Shakespeare’s plays are set in Italy? Two of his most famous works are even set in the city of “fair Verona”, so we thought it only apt to take a tour of the landmarks that any literature fan would be a “Shakespearean fool” to miss. Warning: Many of these locations are a fair distance from each other, leaving you two options. You can make use of the local public transport and walk, which may save you a bit of money. Alternatively, you can look into car hire at...

Morales: Don’t be surprised if Daniel Jacobs defeats Canelo Alvarez

Middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez has one loss in his career and that came to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in September 2013. Alvarez’s second defeat could be May 4 when he takes on Daniel Jacobs in a title-unification bout at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (on DAZN). Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) knows Jacobs is a mean hombre, as does the rest of the boxing world. Jacobs proved it when he took then-champion Gennady Golovkin all 12 rounds before losing a narrow unanimous decision in March 2017 at Madison Squ...

Wherefore Art Thou, Gnocchi-o? Fair Verona Has Another Enduring Love Story

Tambour Sacre Rubini: African Spirit

MASH HIT. XTR’s ‘Di Traverso’ Mash 500 Dirt Tracker

Written by Andrew Jones Is it just me, or are customisers a lot like rock bands? You have your favourites. You wear the t-shirts. You feel a little tinge of excitement when you hear that they have released something new. Well, in my mind, Spain’s XTR Pepo is more than a little like AC/DC. Yes, they stick to what they know, but they are so damn good at what they know you just don’t care. And if there’s one thing that Pepo Rosell is good at, it’s ‘sell your granny to the abattoir to get one’ ra...

Juliet texts emojis but Romeo forgets his smartphone: Shakespeare in Venice at Hotel Danieli

Shakespeare in Venice at Hotel Danieli - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) William Shakespeare, the world's most famous English playwright, set one third of his plays in Italy.

With a Kiss I Die – review

Director: Ronnie Khalil Release date: 2018 Contains spoilers Tying Shakespeare (and his works) into the vampire genre isn’t unheard of and director Ronnie Khalil looks to do just that with this vehicle set in Greece (Santori to be precise). What we end up with is a queered take on Romeo and Juliet (more a sequel than anything else) and this should not surprise us as the vampire is a strong vehicle for queering a story. We end up with an interesting idea, with some nice lighting/brightness work...

How to soak up the arts in Bucharest

You don’t even have to step inside a museum to get a sense of the artistic talent alive in Bucharest. It bleeds through the city’s street art; runs down the cobblestone streets of the Old Town; and cascades in underground art galleries, punk shows, and pop-up dinners in the dimly lit corners of Romania’s culture-rich capital. But the city is also eager to share its rich history with visitors in various well-established galleries, ranging from the medieval to the post-Communist contemporary. I...

Star Wars takes people to Morocco and Ireland; fans of the movies The Lord of Rings flock to New Zealand; Games of Thrones aficionados rush to Croatia and Iceland, and Amélie has brought so many tourists to Paris that Audrey Tautou should get royalty payments for each person walking into the Café des deux Moulins.
