We hear from writer John Irving who also knows his way around a good wrestling move. He competed in high school and later coached. He says wrestling and writing both require discipline. This feature comes from Shaul Schwarz and Time’s LightBox blog.
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.
