The Lyric Opera of Chicago is one of our area's greatest cultural institutions and it is currently part way through its 2013/14 season. November performances include Wagner's Parsifal and Verdi's La Traviata. Among the excellent resources created by the Lyric in conjunction with this season is a series of commentaries free to stream or download from their web site. These commentaries feature a quick plot synopsis, musical highlights and information and anecdotes surrounding the history of each opera.
Bob Dylan has been awarded France’s highest decoration, the Legion of Honour, for his contributions to culture and art as a musician and poet. Currently on tour in Europe, Dylan attended a brief ceremony in Paris where France’s Minister of Culture and Communication, Aurélie Filippetti, presented him with the distinction. Dylan commented that he was “proud and grateful” for the honor, though had little else to say before his departure. Dylan was previously denied the award for past political stances and personal actions deemed unsuitable for the Legion of Honour.
