The fifth annual Ecuadorian Film Festival is on from October 18 to 20 in New York. It’s a lively festival that always surprises, what with its riveting themes. Some of the films have already won Latin American film awards. All are in Spanish with English subtitles. This year’s festival will have two venues: The Queens Museum and the Syndicated Bar Theater Kitchen in Brooklyn. The Queens location is excellent because it also offers a walk through Flushing Meadow park if you choose to get there by the famed 7 train. The multi-faceted  Bushwick, Brooklyn location, in an old factory building, is an experience in itself.

The furor over Placido Domingo’s relationships with women during his long-spanning career in Opera has reached a crescendo. He decided at the last minute to drop out of what would have been his first US performance since the sexual harassment allegations surfaced in August, from Verdi’s “Macbeth” at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. The Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Opera had already canceled his performances with them, citing “the need to provide a safe workplace.”

When I received an email from Jim Furlong, Director of Arts for the Hudson Guild, seeking community members for “Romanzas de Zarzuela,” I knew I had to try out for it. Furlong explained that he was a big fan of a recording called “Romanzas de Zarzuela” sung by Spanish operatic soprano Montserrat Caballé and they pretty much honored the structure and flow of the original recording. “However, I did interject five piano solo numbers," Furlong said. The show is divided into 13 Scenes, with dance numbers for children, youth, elders, males, females and the entire company -- "an experience that's joyful." Furlong and Westerby of the Matthew Westerby Company are already planning their next projects!

“A Poet in New York” still resonates in the Big Apple. Imagine my surprise when I got off the subway in Bushwick, a depressed Brooklyn Latino neighborhood, and discovered a mural with stanzas from “Sleepless City (Brooklyn Bridge Nocturne)." "Yerma" recently finished a sold-out run in an acclaimed contemporary adaptation at the Park Avenue Armory, 67th Street. Ballet Hispánico's New York Season honored the playwright with two World Premieres
