    Boz Scaggs

        Summer is the time of year when classic-rock dinosaurs trot out their nostalgia acts. Don’t file this show in that category, however. Boz Scaggs has been making music since 1965, on his own and with legends like Steve Miller. And the 70-year-old is still on a creative streak. Memphis, his most recent record, [...]

    The Philadelphia Orchestra

      August in Saratoga means thoroughbred racing, of course, but it also spells the return of the Philadelphia Orchestra to SPAC. The 2014 season begins Wednesday with an all-American program of orchestral works and songs by George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein and Aaron Copland and is titled, of course, The American Songbook. The “Fabulous Philadelphians” will [...]

    Music From Salem

      The long-running, Cambridge-based chamber music series Music From Salem continues this weekend with a concert centered on Johannes Brahms’ musical journey. Brahms started out as Robert Schumann’s protégé, so Schumann is represented by his Scenes From Fairytales. (Their relationship was more complicated than that: Brahms nursed a lifelong, chaste passion for Schumann’s wife Clara, [...]

    Conor Oberst

      Conor Oberst is likely in a very good mood this week, in advance of his show at Brewery Ommegang. Rape charges levied against him via the comments thread of website XoJane were dropped by the accuser last week after Oberst filed suit for libel. The case brought the Bright Eyes singer a different kind [...]

Now, 21 years later, the company, under the direction of Jeannot Painchaud, presents its most astonishing production yet: iD.
