Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -August 17, 2013

 



Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
August 17, 2013

 

08-08-13 (L-R) Valerie Smaldone. Michael Urie. Bruce Dimpflmaier at Michael's portrait unveiling for Broadway's Wall of Fame at Tony's Di Napoli. 147 West 43rd St. Wednesday night 08-07-13

On Broadway, Soul Doctor, music and additional lyrics by Shlomo Carlebach, book by Daniel S. Wise, lyrics by David Schechter, is a musical about a rabbi Shlomo Carlebach who became a popular recording artist in the 1960s. The cast is appealing, and the music is pleasant, but the story lacks drama. The opening night party was held at the Liberty Theatre, with guests like Tovah Feldshuh and Carlebach's daughter Nashema.
 
Off-Broadway, Summer Shorts Series B consist of three short plays by Marian Fontana, Paul Weitz and Alan Zweibel. They are all entertaining. The best one is the last onePine Cone Moment with four splendid actors and is hilarious,
 
Mostly Mozart presented another fine concert with music of Beethoven and Mozart. Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major ("Turkish"), by Mozart, with the soloist Isabelle Faust, was well played, after the Overture to Die Ruinen von Athen, by Beethoven, opened the program. After the intermission, a rousing performance of the Symphony No. 5 in C minor, by Beethoven, was the highlight of the evening. The orchestra, under the baton of Louis Langree, never sounded better or played more powerfully. It was a brilliant performance.
 
I attended a tasting of delicious hors d'oeuvres prepared by chef Alonso Tello, and champagne at Trois Canards, 265 West 20th St. It is a charming restaurant.
 
Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting Cinema of Resistance August 23-26. Four press screening were held. To Be Twenty in the Aures, by Rene Vautier, France, 1972, is an anti-war film, about a platoon of French soldiers forced to fight muslims, who are  fighting for their independence from France, in the barren mountains in Algeria. It is scathing look at the horrors of warfare forced on these young men, who would rather be home in France enjoying their lives. It is a powerful film.

West Indies: The Fugitive Slaves of Liberty, by Mel Ondo, Mauritania, 1979, is an unusual musical, showing the history of the Caribbean Islands colonized by France. It is a cynical view of slavery and French colonialism. Filmed on a single set, it is a remarkable piece of filmmaking. Far From Vietnam, by Jean-Luc Godard, Joris Ivens, William Klein, Claude Lelouch, Chris Marker, Alain Resnais and Agnes Varda, France 1967, is a documentary recalling the bitter war in Vietnam, which divided the American people. It is a powerful reminder of those appalling times. Far From Afghanistan, by John Gianvito, USA/Afghanistan, 2012, is another documentary about the endless war, in which America is involved. Footage of destruction, interviews with survivors, and terrible, horrible scenes are all shown. The four films are an indictment of war, which destroys nations. 
 
MoMA presented ContemporAsian: Focus on South Korea. White Night, by Lee Song-he-il, South Korea, 2012, is about two Korean young men, an airline steward, who picks up another man for sex. They spend the night having sex, wandering around Seoul, revealing a little about themselves, except that there was a homophobe incident many years ago, and finally saying goodbye, as one returns to Germany. It is quite a boring film. Sleepless Night, by Jang Kun-jae, South Korea, 2012, is a delightful film about a young married couple, who obviously have great affection for each other. We see their daily life, and their major problem is when or if they can afford a child. It is the most pleasant film of the series and I heartily recommend it. El Condor Pasa, by Jeon Soo-il, South Korea, 2012, is the story of a priest, affected by the murder of a young girl for whom he had a great affection. His erotic relationship with her older sister causes him great torment and severe mental problems,which makes him visit a fellow priest in Peru to seek forgiveness. It is a well made film, excellently acted, and totally engrossing. Again I highly recommend it.

MoMA is also presenting An Auteurist History of FilmL'Avventura, by Michelangelo Antonioni, Italy, 1960, is now considered a film classic, with its cynical view of modern life in Italy. A woman disappears on an island, and her fiance and her best friend (Monica Vitti) try to find her. While traveling in search of her, following leads in Sicily, they fall in love. It made Vitti a star and a muse for the director. It is an interesting film.
 
Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Don Carlo, by Verdi, from Teatro alla Scala, first shown on December 7, 2008. It was a beautifully sung performance, by an outstanding cast. Ferruccio Furlanetto sang powerfully as Philip II. Both Fiorenza Cedolins (Elisabeth de Valois) and Dolora Zajick (Princess Eboli) sang and acted superbly, well supported by Stuart Neill (Don Carlo) and Dalibor Jenis (Rodrigo). The orchestra and chorus sounded wonderful. Daniele Gatti conducted another highlight of this splendid series.
