Would you do a day trip to Rome How about Munich

first_imgWould you do a day trip to Rome? How about Munich?FANCY A CHEAP CITY BREAK? British Airways has announced that it is offering ‘affordable day trip’ tickets to a number of European cities. So, you can fly to popular break destinations such as Dublin, Rome and Vienna, and back, on the same day.The tickets are available for Saturdays and Sundays, so they’re great if you’re working all week and can’t afford to take a Friday off or a long weekend. If you’re pushed for time, you can have a mini-holiday and back to do the week’s food shop on a Sunday. Fly out in the morning, get there in time for a good lunch (al fresco?), have a wander round, see a few sights and get a taste of a new place, before returning home in the evening. Sounds good? You’ll certainly save on hotel bills. There are a couple of catches: firstly, that the fares are only available from London Heathrow, so it’s not really that great a deal if you live in say, Belfast, or Sheffield. Also, the deal is for passengers travelling hand luggage only but this really shouldn’t be a problem, unless you planned to change for lunch and dinner, and bring back a case full of souvenirs. If you’re going for just a day, you won’t even need to pack your toothbrush.BA’s return fares start at £79 to Dublin and Geneva, £89 to Rome and Edinburgh, and £99 to Vienna and Munich. The airline says it intend to roll out the fares to further European cities.Would you do a city break day trip? Where would you go?Here are some ideas:10 best things to do in Rome: a local’s guideFrom ancient treasures to modern pleasures, take a local’s tour of of the best things to see, do, eat and drink in the Eternal City.10 best things to do in Paris – a local’s guideForget the Eiffel Tower: let a local show you around the real Paris with 10 lovely things to see and do in the city of love.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Related2019 January Flight DealsThere’s no better time to find cheap flights than the ‘January sales’.

Puerto Penasco Mexico – Reported by Elite Travele

first_imgPuerto Penasco, Mexico – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineGrupo Mayan, a luxury hotel chain in Puerto Penasco, has just announced the opening of Mexico’s first privately-built airport, Mar de Cortes International. Located on the five-star Mayan Palace resort, the new airport will allow travelers to jet in for the weekend and practically step off of their plane and onto the beach. In preparation for the spring fishing season, the resort will cater to guests by arranging world-class fishing charters and expeditions.Providing visitors with an all-access pass to “the world’s aquarium,” Puerto Penasco also offers some of the best fishing on the Pacific. Now thanks to the Mar de Cortes International airport, this hot vacation destination is easily accessible as well.Prior to the airport’s construction, travel to Puerto Penasco was difficult: Air service was limited to aircraft that could land on unimproved fields, keeping the number of visitors low. The airport features an 8,200-foot concrete runway and is capable of handling Boeing 737’s and 757’s and other similar aircraft. Two taxiways accommodate three aircraft on the aprons, while L861 lighting on the runway, PAPI’s visual aids and wind cones ensure safe take-offs and landings.Now for a limited time, Mayan Palace will be offering stays to private pilots who land at Mar de Cortes International.Visit www.mayanresorts.com/mayan-palacelast_img read more

Cabo San Lucas—Cabo Riviera a new luxury resident

first_imgCabo San Lucas—Cabo Riviera, a new luxury residential and commercial development in the Baja Peninsula, has broken ground. Located on the Sea of Cortez 45 minutes from the Los Cabos International airport, Cabo Riviera will be the only five-star development on the East Cape of the peninsula, which is known for its calm waters, beautiful white sand beaches, abundant marine life, diving, snorkeling and unparalleled fishing and boating. The 900-acre development will be anchored by two luxury hotels and will include branded residential living, a state-of-the art signature Pete Dye golf course, and a new 285-slip marina with European-influenced old world architecture.The development is a joint venture between several partners, each with unique resort development experience both in Mexico and the U.S. Grumar S.A., based in Mexico City, developed the first U.S. branded luxury hotel in Los Cabos and has executed developments of high-end projects in Huatulco, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta and the Baja Peninsula. Grumar S.A. also constructed the three U.S. Embassies in Mexico City, Guatemala City and San Salvador. The U.S.-based partners include Gary G Jacobs, Hank Sames, Ben Barnes and James Sharp. The team brings development, financial, marketing and legal experience to the venture.

The East Cape of the Baja Peninsula is one of the most spectacular areas in the world. The Sea of Cortez has no pollution, stunning white sand beaches, incredible marine life and inspirational views of the majestic desert mountains of southern Baja. The air is dry, the ocean water is crystal clear, and there is a large living coral reef a few minutes off the coast. The area is perfectly-suited for light tackle and big game fishing, whale watching, ocean swimming, and hiking in the mountains.”www.caboriviera.com.mxlast_img read more

This image released by the Metropolitan Opera show

first_img This image released by the Metropolitan Opera shows Soprano Evelyn Herlitzius as the temptress Kundry with tenor Klaus Florian Vogt in the title role of Wagner’s “Parsifal” at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. The German soprano is making belated debuts this season on U.S. opera stages at age 54, following up her Met appearances by starring as Bruennhilde in Wagner’s “Ring” cycle in San Francisco in June. (Ken Howard/Metropolitan Opera via AP) German dramatic soprano making belated US opera debuts NEW YORK, N.Y. – At an age when many singers are beginning to wind down their careers, Evelyn Herlitzius is making a splash with debuts in U.S. opera houses on both coasts.For more than two decades the German dramatic soprano — with emphasis on “dramatic” — has been giving performances of searing intensity in some of opera’s most difficult roles at major theatres across Europe, from Berlin and Bayreuth to Milan and Rome.Now 54, she is finally getting the attention she deserves on U.S. opera stages. She recently triumphed at New York’s Metropolitan Opera as Kundry in Wagner’s “Parsifal,” and in June she will portray Bruennhilde in his “Ring” cycle in San Francisco. (She had previously sung concert performances at Carnegie Hall of Berg’s “Wozzeck” and Schoenberg’s “Erwartung.”)“I don’t know why it never happened before,” Herlitzius said in an interview backstage at the Met last month. “It’s a waste of time to think about that. It never came up. But it seems to be the right time now. Things happen when they ought to.”In New York, the critics were virtually unanimous in hailing her arrival. “Evelyn Herlitzius fascinated as the enigmatic shape-shifter Kundry,” wrote James Jorden on Observer.com. “Her muscular voice admittedly has quite a few miles on it, but her sterling commitment made even a few yelps standing in for high notes sound organic.”Herlitzius grew up in Osnabrueck and got a late start in opera because she originally set out to be a dancer. When she started vocal lessons, she loved the “physical experience” of singing but had trouble imagining it as a career.“Singers? … I found them silly,” she recalled with a laugh. “Their behaviour, like clucking chickens. … Could you speak in a normal way, please?”And figuring out her voice type posed problems, since she had an unusually wide range and could sing high-flying coloratura as well as the low notes of a contralto. “Nobody knew what to do with me!” she said. Her teachers tried to groom her as a lyric soprano, but “the voice was too big already. I almost died when I had to sing Pamina (in Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”). It was terrible!”So she made her professional debut in a major Wagner role, Elisabeth in “Tannhaeuser,” in Flensburg, in northern Germany, in 1993, and since then has specialized in heroines of Wagner and Richard Strauss, along with other dramatic roles like the title characters in Puccini’s “Turandot” and Shostakovich’s “Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District.” It was her performance in Strauss’ “Elektra” in Aix-en-Provence in 2013 that caught the attention of Met general manager Peter Gelb and led to the “Parsifal” engagement.When she first turned to singing she found her training in modern dance a liability. “As a dancer you have a totally different physiology,” she said. “You have to be slim, no tummy allowed. Don’t even breathe, breathe into your shoulders! And as a singer you have to be much more grounded. As a dancer you’re up in the air, as a singer you have to be connected with the earth, so it’s totally different. It took me a long time to change.”“But later of course it was helpful onstage because as a dancer you know more about bodies, and what could I tell with my head, my shoulders, what could I do with my hands. Some singers have great difficulties with their hands, they’re not aware of them.”For the Met’s revival of Francois Girard’s acclaimed production of “Parsifal,” she used her dance training, especially in the second act, when Kundry tries to seduce Parsifal and becomes desperate as he rebuffs her.“I had to adapt myself because it’s always difficult as a singer coming into an existing production,” she said. “You have to follow your own ideas about the role but you can’t destroy what’s already there. I thought for the second act it would be good to invent some of my own choreography. We talked about it, and I think he (Girard) was very happy. I love to improvise.”Her dance training was not lost on New Yorker music critic Alex Ross, who wrote that “it shows in the extraordinary flexibility and focus of her physical movement.”Looking ahead to San Francisco, Herlitzius describes Bruennhilde as a character who over the course of three operas matures “from teenage girl rebelling against her father to an adult woman feeling responsibility for what she’s done and for the world.”“It’s a journey. And you need five different voices to sing it!” she said. “You start (in ‘Die Walkuere’) as a coloratura for the ‘Ho-Jo-to-Hos.’ Then there are so many recitatives it’s like a lieder recital. Then you need to be a real mezzo for the Todesverkuendigung Scene.”“For ‘Siegfried,’” she continued, “the tessitura is much higher, so the ideal voice would be a huge lyric spin to sound like for ‘Aida.’ In ‘Goetterdaemmerung,’ in some ways, it’s the simplest. You don’t have to change your voice. It stays dramatic soprano. You just have to have the stamina to get through it.”As belated as her U.S. arrival has been, Herlitzius will be back at least once more, singing the Nurse in Strauss’ “Die Frau ohne Schatten” in a Met revival in 2021. She had previously sung the role of the Dyer’s Wife in the same opera. And she’s about to make a similar switch in Janacek’s “Jenufa,” moving from the title role to that of the heroine’s stepmother, the Kostelnicka.“It’s exciting to create another role in a piece I’ve already done,” she said. “You get to develop the opera from another aspect, and understand the characters from a different perspective.”center_img by Mike Silverman, The Associated Press Posted Mar 14, 2018 9:04 am PDT Last Updated Mar 14, 2018 at 9:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

Vulnerability key to country singer Brett Youngs

(AP Photo/Mark Humphrey) center_img NASHVILLE, Tenn. – “In Case You Didn’t Know,” a love ballad by country singer Brett Young, has been added to a lot of wedding playlists since it came out in 2017, but it has put Young in an awkward position for his own upcoming nuptials.Young, who is engaged to longtime girlfriend Taylor Mills, said he’s already ruled out singing that song — or any other he’s recorded — at his wedding.“One thing I think is just a terrible decision is to sing one of your own songs from your own record,” Young, 36, said. “That is such a cop-out and so cheesy and easy.”The Southern California native has taken over as country music’s new heartbreak kid, thanks to that triple-platinum song and a string of other heartfelt singles from the debut self-titled album.Young won new male artist at this year’s ACM Awards and is up for new artist at the CMA Awards in November. His platinum-selling debut spawned four platinum-selling country singles and he just announced the release of his next album with Big Machine Label Group, “Ticket to L.A.,” coming out Dec. 7.Young hoped to become a baseball player in college but was sidelined by an elbow injury. He had been playing guitar since high school and was inspired to start writing songs after listening to Gavin DeGraw. So he worked as a bartender and sang wherever he could get a gig in Los Angeles.“Ten years in total of playing bars and restaurants in one of the biggest entertainment cities in the world and I never got one meeting,” Young said during a recent interview at The Thompson Hotel in Nashville’s trendy Gulch district where he now lives. “I came to Nashville wanting to focus on the songwriting side of things. And within a year of writing songs and pitching demos with my voice on it, I had a record deal.”DeGraw said Young caught up with him as he was walking down Sunset Boulevard after a show about 10 years ago. They exchanged phone numbers and Young kept in touch to give him updates on his career.“I love his story. He had high hopes for something else and it didn’t work out,” DeGraw said. “Instead of kicking a can about it, he found a new direction. It’s a real classic underdog story.”Turns out he came to Nashville at just the right time. Young’s image as a sensitive, athlete-turned-songwriter slid right into a niche among country music fans tired of party songs. Much of his first record was based on his lengthy relationship with his fiancee.“The key has been vulnerability,” Young said. “I’m a large guy and I came from the sports world, and the last thing I wanted to do was come barrelling in with this kind of aggressive attitude. I think by being a guy that’s willing to be vulnerable and show that, it’s helped reach both male and female audiences.”He’s been serving ballad after ballad to country radio, which has been surprisingly receptive to his slower songs. But he promises more tempo on the new album, including the title track, “Ticket to L.A.,” which contains a story line fit for a Netflix romantic comedy.DeGraw and Young, together with songwriter Ross Copperman, put Young’s personal story to song in a new track they both sing on from the upcoming album, “Chapters.” It felt very full circle for DeGraw to see a fan turn into a friend that has achieved his dreams.“I’ve been lucky to have success,” DeGraw said. “It’s different when you get to watch someone you’re friends with have success. It’s well deserved. I tell Brett, ‘You’re gonna be the next stadium act.’”Young is on tour with Thomas Rhett before headlining the next CMT on Tour trek, which starts in November. And he’s still weighing his options for wedding songs.“It is an interesting dilemma knowing that I got to sing something and I have no idea what it is,” Young said. “I like stuff that happens in the 11th hour and I feel like this will be a thing I decide on like a week before or something.”__Online:http://www.brettyoungmusic.com/___Follow Kristin M.
