  • Critical Praise for Shadow Night's Mate

    Jay Brandon is a successful attorney and a prolific, award-winning mystery novelist. His novel Shadow Night's Mate depicts Jack Driscoll, a member of a shadowy group known as The Circle. Its members have stealthily shaped America’s foreign and domestic policies for over two centuries.  Among their other triumphs, the Circle brought down world Communism. But they operate through suggestion and subtle influence, and are never overt.... But the Circle has been broken. The country is under a bizarre nanotech attack from ... very rich terrorists? Space invaders? Meanwhile, Europe is full of Jack look-alikes intent on putting a price on his head, the President intends to withdraw all American forces from everywhere, and a major peace conference is about to become a bloodbath. And then there’s this girl ... Along the way readers will discover some of the “real history” of America, including why Lee chose Gettysburg, why Franklin Roosevelt had to run for a third and fourth term in office, and why Tom Hanks’ becoming a movie star was one of the Circle’s greatest failures.

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox
    Fantastic Mr. Fox 9/23 7:30PM
     

    Mr. Fox is a very clever fox. But oftentimes, it is the cleverest of foxes that makes the greatest enemies. Composed by Opera San Antonio’s Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox chronicles a gang of woodland creatures as they attempt to outwit three very brutish farmers. Picker was commissioned by the Roald Dahl Foundation to compose the music for this live action spectacle in 1998 (over 10 years before Wes Anderson’s film made Mr. Fox famous!). Tuesday’s performance is Opera San Antonio’s inaugural offering at the Tobin.
