Bella Donna

~
Rodney Punt, Tod Mesirow and I are all very pleased that Donna Perlmutter has joined us at LA Opus. Donna's debut review is of last Friday night's concert with the LA Philharmonic under the sturdy and authoritative baton of Maestra Xian Zhang.

Donna Perlmutter reviewed classical music for many years at the LA Times and most recently at now-defunct LA Citybeat. Her Viking book Shadowplay: Anthony Tudor's Life in Dance is a biography of the Cockney-born choreographer, and stands as one of the rare books that makes the often difficult-to-describe topic of dance not only approachable to general cultural readers, but also documents the transformational quality of the art form itself as it worked through Tudor's life. We couldn't be more proud to have Donna in the mix.
