Opera | The Met Opera: Verdi's La Traviata with Plácido Domingo


James Levine leads a remarkable cast in one of Verdi’s most enduringly popular operas and brings fresh insights to this beloved score. Ileana Cotrubas is poignant and touching as Violetta, the consumptive courtesan who finds true love with Alfredo, sung with style and passion by the great Plácido Domingo. Cornell MacNeil is Germont, Alfredo’s father, who forces the two apart, setting in motion events that lead to a shattering and tragic conclusion. This is a recording of 1981 production.

Workshop | Getting a Job in the New Economy: Interviewing


Everyone knows how to prepare for an interview: look at the website, review the job description, check out the interviewer on LinkedIn, and prepare answers to questions like “What is your greatest weakness?”  All valuable steps to take, no doubt.  But is there anything else we can do to give ourselves an edge? During interviews we often assume that interviewers have all the power, or that our needs as a candidate are not important.  It turns out, perhaps surprisingly, that the employer actually has an interest in meeting our needs.  They want to hire someone who can do the job, but also grow and succeed in their organization.  Join career coach Win Sheffield to learn how to: Recognize and leverage your power in the interview Understand what the employer wants Play the interview game with renewed confidence Strategically demonstrate your value before, during, and after the interview

Discussion | COVID and Meat: How a Pandemic Changed the Way We Eat


Since COVID-19 spread across the United States, meatpacking plants have become frequent hot spots of the virus. In response to the outbreaks, numerous plants shut down and beef, poultry, and pork production has reduced considerably. In light of these revelations, it’s caused some to not only reevaluate how they source their meat but also consider their relationship with meat altogether.  Join a panel of experts including journalist Alicia Kennedy, Chris Kim (Monk’s Meats), Kimberly Ratcliffe (Caney Creek Ranch), Heather Marold Thomason (Primal Supply Meats), and R. Dennis Olsen (United Food & Commercial Workers International Union) for an online panel discussion about the ways in which COVID-19 had impacted the meat industry and how these effects may or may not change the way Americans engage with meat going forward.
