To put one into the mindset of a vocal program the first hour featured some very wonderful vocal recordings. But first -

Ravel:  Sheherazade featuring Kiri Te Kanawa on the vocal and John Pritchard conducting the Orchestra of the Belgian National Opera.

During the interview an aria by Lalo was played as well as the last two arias and the duet from Act I of La Boheme.

The Tony Awards countdown continues!

We continue our listen to the Tony nominated shows this week with Next to Normal. Called a rock musical, this is the story of a woman who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and explores the effect not only herself but her family. As part of that effect, the show also touches on grieving, suicide, drug abuse, and ethics in modern psychiatry.

This musical (which at times sounds very much like The Who’s Tommy) has gotten consistently good reviews and has been nominated for 11 Tonys. It seems to inhabit the same sort of dark place that Spring Awakening did 2 years ago – good music and great performances in a very dark and disturbing story. I expect this is one of those musicals you need to see, not just listen to.

Act I
• Prelude
• Just Another Day – Diana, Natalie, Gabe, Dan
• Everything Else – Natalie
• Who's Crazy/My Psychopharmacologist and I – Dan, Doctor Fine, Diana, Ensemble
