Born Jerzy Himmelfarb in Poland at the turn of the last century, he left safely before the Nazi invasion, relocated to Britain, and became—with the help of his newly Anglicized name and his old graphic-design partner, Jan Le Witt—one of the essential modern commercial artists.

Soprano from the North Country

If you are an opera-lover or a culture enthusiast, get yourself to London in early March for Beethoven’s Fidelio, to be sung by Lise Davidsen and Jonas Kaufmann at the Royal Opera House.

This newly minted Norwegian soprano possesses what many are calling the most important voice to have emerged in decades, and it could possibly prove to be the most important voice of the century. What makes it so momentous? READ ON

The dramatic soprano Lise Davidsen is cast in the role of Leonora in the Royal Opera House’s production of Fidelio, opening next week in London.
