'Cutting For Stone' ... I Mean David Carlson's 'Anna Karenina' Reigns On The San Jose, California Opera Stage; Philip Glass Coming To KC Opera House

I imagine that the Washington National Opera's current so-called administration considered David Carlson and Colin Graham's opera "Anna Karenina" too provincial for its highly affluent Kennedy Center Opera House audiences.

According to favorable reviews, fortunately the Opera San Jose did not. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Opera San Jose's production (eight performances) of Anna Karenina "first rate - a visual and vocal delight."

Meanwhile, Philip Glass is coming to the Kennedy Center Opera House. However, as the Washington National Opera reorganizes itself, he will be coming without one of his operas.
