l'K administrators said they have not
met with LexTran officials to discuss any

The idea must have been discussed at
a LexTran board meeting. Burch said.

The student fee plan would not be
beneficial for l'K. Burch said.

“The idea is good. but accessing a fee
would not be feasible." he said.

If LexTran were able to implement
the student fee with l'K. possible plans
would be to extend the free bus route on

LexTran would put an extra concentra-

proportions and potential." she said.

The program‘s aim is to identify excep-
tionally talented opera singers and to assist
them in their development. to discover new
talent for the Metropolitan Opera and to
search for possible participants in the Met‘s
Young Artist Development Program.

where everyone around you is good." she
said. "because that is how we stretch our-
selves and how we grow,"


The Metropolitan Opera auditions will begin at

JERUSALEM — Several Israeli web sites

Mideast conflict crashed after Islamic groups
abroad jammed them with fake traffic, Israeli of-

A wee taste of Irish dancing

By Brandio Bright


If you thought that the Irish
were best known for their
drinking abilities, after experi-
encing Riverdance it becomes
quite obvious where true Irish
talent lies.

Riverdance opened Tuesday
evening in Cincinnati‘s Aronot‘f
Center to a toetappin‘. hand-
clappin' crowd. Although the
“Lord of the Dance“ Michael
Flatley is no longer with Rivers
dance. this shows star. Michael
Patrick Gallagher. impressively
fills his shoes literally.

Tara Barry. also in a lead
ing role. captures the admira
tion and envy of everyone

watching. Within the first three
seconds. she soars across the
stage. Gallagher and Barry
both have been Irish dancing
since they were toddlers and
have won numerous World

Barry has been with the
show since its 1995 premier in
Dublin where the t‘i\'e»week
sellout run astounded unsus
pecting audiences. After the re-
lease of videos. (_‘I)s and a
Broadway run. the world be
came consumed by these mad
Irish cloggers who can move

their feet faster than Neal
Peart‘s drumsticks.
Aside from the talented

Irish dancing troupe. there are
other factors that contribute

equally to this intoxicating ex

perience. The lighting and
scenery whisk the viewer in to
a dream-like world where the
background itself becomes a
character choreographing its
own dance. Audience members
are enchanted by the deep reds
and ghostly blues that are remi~
niscent of Irish ancestors.

The other contributing
pseudo character is the int‘il-
trating and mesmeri/ing music.
Violins. tlutes. multiple percus-
sive instruments and guitars all
combine to create the perfect
mixture of Irish folk and a
splash of rock. In a matter of
minutes. the melodic under-
tones can erect tear-jerking sad-
ness and then overpowering

Along with Irish dancing.
there are Spanish. American
and urban influences involved
with the show. In fact. in one se-
quence there is a dancing duel
between Gallagher‘s straight
and tall Irish jig versus three ur-
ban "step" dancers. What one
comes away with is a deep ap~
preciation for all variations of
this percussive dance. whether
it is traditional or modem.

Rit'erdance leaves a lasting
impression that is like no other.
