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.

President Obama’s brother, Mark Obama Ndesandjo will takes his national media tour to San Antonio on September 23, to discuss his much-awaited book: An Obama’s Journey: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery Across Three Cultures at Barnes and Noble. Mark’s revealing memoir recounts his complex relationship with his older half-brother, President Barack Obama, including their first meeting in Kenya over twenty years ago. The book also offers the author's inspiring personal story about identity and multiculturalism. Rare family photos add to the book's personal nature, as does the intense recounting of domestic violence in the home of Barack Obama Sr. and his third wife, Ruth Baker, Ndesandjo’s Jewish-American mother. The book also attempts to set the records straight on several points of the president’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father. In it's connection to President Obama, Mark's story takes on an even greater significance because it becomes all the more directly, a story of American identity and a window into the complex figure of the father they share, Barack Obama Sr., their roots in Kenya, their multicultural identities and their relationships with America. Mark will be donating a portion of this book’s profits to his Foundation to promote art education among disadvantaged children worldwide.

To say this movie is merely a “masterpiece” is doing it a disservice. To lump it in with all the other movies that are just great is unfair.
SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN transcends its medium and tap dances straight into your heart. It's a film you can watch on a cold night and feel it flush your face with warmth. It’s a song you can sing when rain is pouring down on you and you couldn't care less because you're in love.
This isn't one of those classic movies you have to see because it's “important” and your viewing experience will feel anything but scholastic. You need to see this movie because YOU NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.

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.
