Rogers, “poisonous relations”: the family feud continues

TORONTO – “Fratelli coltelli”. Or, if you prefer, “Parenti serpenti”. These are the titles of two Italian comedies of the 90s that are well suited to the squalid show that the members of the Rogers family, owners of the homonymous telecommunications giant, are giving, publicly. In English we could translate those titles like “Dearest Relatives, Poisonous Relations”, to say that in the Rogers family there is a real feud that has also ended up on social media, in particular on Twitter where Martha Rogers, director of Rogers Communications, asked her brother Edward to “resign”. But let’s take a step back. (more…)

O folclore está (rá) de volta!?

(Revista Amar / Laurentino Esteves) Numa sexta-feira, ao início da noite, cerca de meia centena de jovens, crianças e alguns adultos do grupo ensaiavam no parque de estacionamento do clube. À média luz e já com o vento de outono, observava todos aqueles jovens empolgados a dançar folclore (podiam estar a fazer outra coisa) mas, ali estavam atentos aos conselhos da ensaiadora Nancy Vieira. O ritmo era composto por dois jovens à concertina – o Miguel e o Mário Pereira! Eu estava que nem um peixinho na água a ver os elementos a dançar, moda após moda, com a ajuda da diretora do grupo Angie Camara que me adiantou que o mesmo foi fundado em 1987 e que desde então têm representado o clube em muitos eventos, incluindo festivais de folclore e, claro, no “Carassauga”. Para meu espanto dançaram a “Chula Vareira”, uma moda da minha linda Póvoa de Varzim… por momentos esqueci-me das agruras da vida! … Read More in Revista Amar >>>

Nota design: Natale pandemico

A volte c’è qualcosa di confortante nella rapacità commerciale americana. La “variante delta” e gli altri contorni della pandemia Covid hanno finora ucciso 725 mila cittadini Usa – continuando a mietere circa duecento vittime al giorno – ma l’opportunità ludica (e di guadagno) non è passata inosservata. La vita continua e dimostra che: “non tutto il male vien per nuocere (ai conti)”… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Bignamini torna a Toronto per dirigere “Gianni Schicchi”

TORONTO – Maestro, cominciamo in medias res: a marzo di quest’anno aveva dichiarato che lo streaming è una grande opportunità che non allontana il pubblico. Lo pensa ancora?
«Lo penso ancora, anche perché in questo momento sono a Toronto e faccio di nuovo uno streaming dopo un po’ di tempo in cui non li facevo più. È sicuramente un valore aggiunto, per il pubblico è un’opportunità in più per usufruire dei concerti, anche nel momento in cui non può essere presente di persona. Certo, bisogna sempre offrire un prodotto di qualità, non importa il mezzo con cui si veicola il lavoro musicale e la performance»… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>
