Emanuel Ax, live at Jordan Hall on January 8, 2010
I don't want to imply that everybody who's anybody was at Jordan Hall Friday night to hear pianist Emanuel Ax's Celebrity Series recital — but that was Yo-Yo Ma sitting two rows in front of me.

Miss perfect

The new BBC/WGBH Emma gets a 10
I know what you're thinking: " Another Emma ? Didn't we just have a bushel of Jane Austen adaptations for TV?" Well, WGBH did give us four new Austens, but that was all the way back in 2008, a Jane-ite eternity.

The power of Cesar

Leader of the Pack
The funniest moments of Cesar Millan's PackPower Tour show at Agganis Arena last Sunday came during intermission, when the three big video screens showed a snippet from "Tsst," the South Park parody episode where the Dog Whisperer goes up against Cartman.

Review: The Christmas Revels

Revels takes us back to our roots
" 'Tis a gift to be simple," goes the beginning of the Shaker hymn "Simple Gifts," and it's been taken to heart in the 39th annual production of The Christmas Revels (at Sanders Theatre through December 27). The theme this year is America — Shaker America, Appalachian America, African-American America, and Native American America.

Interview: Cesar Millan

The Dog Whisperer comes to Boston

Is it magic yet?

Boston Ballet's Nutcracker
When you've seen every Boston Ballet Nutcracker for the past 20-odd years, and reviewed most of them, it can get a little hard to locate the magic. Then again, when you survey other Nutcracker s around the world you appreciate that there's no place like home, and not many that are as good.

Review: Bad Boy Made Good

The revival of George Anthiel's 1924 Ballet méchanique
If Igor Stravinsky’s Sacre du printemps paved the way for modern rock, then George Antheil’s Ballet mécanique made possible every genre of contemporary music with “noise” or “metal” in its name.
