Detroit 9000
Blaxploitation classic re-released in 1999 by Quentin Tarantino's Rolling Thunder distribution company.
Film Review  July 23, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...First released in 1973 and directed by a man who would later move on to the simple pleasures of Starsky and Hutch, this is grade-A prime silliness, a gooey dollop of cops and robbers Velveeta that manages to make Rudy Ray Moore's Avenging Disco Godfather look like an auteur-driven masterpiece by comparison. When a fundraising ball held by black gubernatorial challenger Clayton (the aptly named Challenger) is raided by a band of ski-masked hoods toting both CAR-15s and Luger pistols (how's that for diversity?), white Detroit Police Department Lt..."

Leaving "Lyric" behind, Austin Opera launches a new era
Arts Story  November 6, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...If all those ads for Verdi's A Masked Ball have you wondering just what Austin Opera is and what happened to that other company with those two words in its name – the one that's been producing Verdi and Puccini and Mozart and all those other music-drama heavyweights for more than a quarter of a century, well, there's no real mystery. The companies are one and the same..."

"...Earning the most attention from the group were two premieres: Ballet Austin's Belle Redux/A Tale of Beauty & the Beast and the UT Department of Theatre & Dance's Refugia, created with the Moving Company, each of which received seven nominations. Four productions captured six nods apiece: Zach Theatre’s Texas premiere of the Robert Schenkkan political drama All the Way; Austin Opera's modern-day staging of Verdi's A Masked Ball; Salvage Vanguard Theater's undead riff on Chekhov, Thr3e Zisters; and the Texas State University Department of Theatre & Dance's spirited revival of Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate...."

With help from Esther's Follies, Austin Lyric Opera turns Strauss' Viennese waltz into a Texas two-step
Arts Story  May 30, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...Though it preserves the music of the original and the basics of the plot, this adaptation by Lyova Rosanoff, Steve Saugey, and Shaun Wainwright-Branigan transports the popular operetta from the capital of Austria to the capital of the Lone Star State, where one may easily find a "flutter-mouse" (to translate the German literally) or two million making their summer home under the bridge of the city's main avenue. Aristocrats of the 19th century are now technocrats of the 21st, a masquerade ball at a prince's palace is an Eeyore's Birthday-style costume party at the Driskill Hotel, and Rosalinde, the female lead, has become a yellow rose of Texas, hailing from Luckenbach..."
