Kaufmann's 'Chenier' opera has added relevance after France events

German tenor Jonas Kaufmann poses with his trophy for Classic during Bambi 2014 media awards ceremony in Berlin By Michael Roddy LONDON (Reuters) - German tenor Jonas Kaufmann gave his legions of fans what they pay for in a revival of Umberto Giordano's French Revolution opera "Andrea Chenier" at Covent Garden on Tuesday that took on unanticipated relevance due to recent events in France. The 1896 opera is based on the real-life poet Andre Chenier, who was carted off to the guillotine just three days before revolution leader Maximilien de Robespierre met the same fate. "I made my pen a glorious weapon against hypocrisy," Kaufmann, as Chenier, sang at his trial held in a room filled with citizens baying for his head. With trappings including a huge on-stage banner saying "Citizens, our country is in danger," the timeliness of the production, which opened two weeks after members of the editorial staff of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo were gunned down by Islamist militants angered by their portrayal of the Prophet Mohammad, was hard to escape.

Harsh world of slavery focus of Louisiana plantation museum

An etching on a memorial wall depicts a suffering slave at the Whitney Plantation in Wallace Louisiana By Jonathan Kaminsky WALLACE, La. (Reuters) - Life-size sculptures of slave children haunt the clapboard church on the grounds of the old sugar cane plantation, where ceramic heads of black men will soon sway on pikes in the Louisiana breeze. Unlike other plantation museums along the Great River Road between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, the newly opened and under-construction Whitney Plantation focuses squarely on the plight of slaves. While nearby sites highlight their antebellum architecture and the lifestyles of the white people who lived there, only 11 minutes of the roughly two-hour Whitney Plantation tour are devoted to the grand house where the German-American masters resided. More time is spent with the granite slabs bearing the names of thousands of Louisiana slaves, interspersed with painful snippets of their narratives.
