On the occasion of San Diego Opera's West Coast premiere of GREAT SCOTT, Nicolas Reveles engages composer Jake Heggie in a lively conversation about the work's conception. Known for his landmark modern classics DEAD MAN WALKING and MOBY DICK, Heggie's newest work concerns Arden Scott, an international opera star who returns to her hometown with the intention of saving the ailing company that started her career. However, her homecoming coincides with the home team's first National Championship. GREAT SCOTT sparks some interesting questions around how we perceive the Arts and what purpose they serve today.

"She is Fierce: The Art of Joyce Cutler-Shaw" is an exploration of the multimedia artist's expansive and diverse body of work, featuring commentary from colleagues and an in-depth interview with Cutler-Shaw. Throughout her long career the art of Joyce Cutler-Shaw has taken on a wide spectrum of forms, from melting iconic "ice words" and reflective light sculptures to installations and public commissions to intricately drawn depictions of the human form. Her subjects are human identity and the natural world; her themes are evolution and survival - from reptile into bird, from mammal to human, and from human, perhaps, to humane. But always at her art's core, according to Cutler-Shaw, is her use of drawing "as a way of knowing, as a mode of inquiry, as a visual language." Her "word images" have been central motifs, informing her works from the outset. Culter-Shaw's works are exhibited in museums and library collections worldwide.
