Opera’s new Domingo-Thornton Young Artists program’s presentation of Mozart’s comedy “Cosi fan Tutte” showed that women are just as human as men are; even in a test of fidelity. “Cosi fan Tutti” sings the story of two young men who go undercover to test the fidelity of their ladies.

Music Review: Black Keys polish garage sound on ‘El Camino’

Amanda Nieto LV Life Editor It is time to pile into a dingy minivan and drive to the dusky groove of The Black Keys’ seductive new album, “El Camino.” The group from Akron, Ohio has done it again with their seventh album, and first one to follow 2010’s Grammy-winner, “Brothers.” After producing the hit song “Tighten Up,” Danger Mouse returns to smooth the rough edges of the ballsy duo. This...

Music Review: Florence + The Machine ascend to new heights

Branden del Rio Editor in Chief Describing Florence + The Machine’s “Ceremonials” as a mixture of strangeness and charm would be far too easy.

Welch...
