We listen in to the poetic quoting that Carol Muske-Dukes was taught by her mother. Her mother must be pleased, as Ms. Muske Dukes is the poet laureate of California and has written eight books of poetry, including a new one called Twin Cities.
Ailyn Perez and Stephen Costello talk about being married and being on-demand opera singers. Also in this show: a primer on how to warm up an instrument before playing, and a dancer who fell from a rooftop.
Jimmy Grashow first saw Rome’s Trevi Fountain in the mid-sixties, when he studied in Italy as a young sculptor. The fountain was originally designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and his marble horses and gods of the sea tower 85 feet above the crowds of tourists. Grashow has recreated the massive fountain…in cardboard. His work is the subject of the documentary, The Cardboard Bernini.
