22 UREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Mon., April 23,1913 Public Broadcasting presents 'Myshkin' By MARY CAMPBELL AP Music Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- The Public Broadcasting Service tonight is presenting a made- for-television opera that is the first of its kind to originate outside of London, New York or Boston. "Myshkin" was composed by John Eaton, an Indiana University faculty member, performed by 17 students and a teacher at Ihe school and produced by WTIU-TV in Bloomington, Ind. It isn't the first opera ever written for television. But it is the first in the National Educa- . lional Television Opera Theater series to come from other than a traditional opera center. Although it has its problems, "Myshkin" is worth watching. And the impulse behind it can be applauded, hopefully continued and improved on. Its major drawback is that its plot, based on Fyodor Dos- loevesky's novel, "The Idiot," is extremely hard to follow. And a synopsis by the composer at the beginning doesn't reveal how the opera ends. This viewer couldn't figure il out. II may be that Ihe novel is loo complex lo survive the Iransilion lo a one-hour opera in English. Then, loo, Ihe singers don't make Iheir words understood. But Ihere are good l.hings in "Myshkin," particularly composer Eaton's logical and effective use of different types of music to describe Ihe spirit of Myshkin, an epileptic. Kalon employs electronic music and wonderfully distorted images when Myshkin becomes irrational or sufferes seizures; traditional, (hough modern, music accompanies Myshkin's lucid periods. The cast members, despite (roubles with Ihe opera's words, sing well, acl well and look good. All are from Ihe university's music school, which is best known for ils opera de- parlmeiil. The produclion of "Myshkin" also is good, undoubledly because WTHJ, a public lelevision station, already has done some 20 lelevision opera productions, slarling wilh "The Magic Flule" in 1054. The Corporation of Public Broadcasting provided $50,000 for this production, one of 12 selected for CPB funding from more lhan W) proposals sub- milted by public lelevision stations in the United Stales. The "Myshkin" libretto was written by Patrick Creagh, an Irish poet whom Eaton met when he was living and composing in Home. Eaton, 38, has been at Indiana University for three years, leaching and composing both for eleclronic and none- leclronic inslrumenls as well as Ihe human voice. His next opera, which wasn'l wrillen for lelevision, is intended lo be performed by children for children. II goes into produclion May 7, the participants ranging from Grades 3 through 6. The idea 'behind il, Eaton says, is thai children "will learn to love opera by participating creatively in il. Or thai is the hope." The opera, based on the story of Androcles and the lion, has a catchy, though tentative, title: "Lions 10, Christians I." As Boyle sees it Tribe loses humanity THE MOUNTAIN PEOPLE; by Dr. Colin Turnbull; Simon and Schuster; 309 pages Reviewed By RICK ORLOV Copley News Service The need for food and the sense of survival has been replaced with the desire for money in most Western countries, according to a leading anthropologist. This, in turn, leads to an increasing sense of isolation from society and the world, says Dr., Colin Turnbull. Turnbull, a native of England and an American citizen since 19G4, said it is now possible for a person with sufficient funds to "cut himself off" without ever coming into contact with another person. "All I would have to do is pick up the phone, call someone and have them deliver whatever I needed," he said. "I would just have to make sure I could pay for it." Turnbull's book is the story of an isolated African tribe known as the Ik (pronounced eek). The book, which he says is "horrendous" in some of its Monday evening p.m. 6:30--2 Andy Griffilh 4 Let's Make Deal 6 Commonwealth 7 Young Dr. Kildare 9 Thrill Seekers 7:00--2 Truth, Consequences 4 Laugh-in G Future is Now 7 Don Quixote 9 Rookies 7:30--2 Dragnet 6 Bridge 8:00--2 Bonanza 4 Movie 6 Opera Theater 9 Movie 9:00--2 News ti Beethoven 7 Gunsmoke 10:00--2 Movie 4 Eyewitness News 7 News, Wlhr., Spts. 9 News 10:30--4 Tonight Show 10:1)5--7 Movie 11:00--9 Movie 12:00--1 Dr. Joyce Brothers 12:30--4 Yawn Patrol 9 It's Your Bet Tuesday evening p.m. 6:30--2 Andy Griffilh 4 Parent Game 6 Folk Guitar 7 This Is Your Life 9 You Asked For It 7:00--2 Truth, Consequences 4 Movie 6 EslaSemana 7 Maude 9 Cricket 7:15--6 Phoenix 7:30--2 Dragnet 6 CourseofTimes 7 CBS Movie 9 ABC Special 8:00--2 Bonanza 6 French Chef 8::iO-6 Hill Moycn 9: On--2 News 4 America 9 Marcus Welby 9:20--7 Hawaii Five-O 9:30--6 Open Topic 10:00--2 Movie 4 Eyewitness News 9 News 10:20-7 News 10:30-4 Tonight Show 6 Inform 10:55-7 Movie 11:00-9 Knt(rlniimicn! 12:00--4 Dr. Joyce firolhers 12:30- 4 YnwnPnlrol i II'« Vnnr Bol implications to the modern world, details how a small tribe of less than 1,000 persons loses what Turnbull calls "all sense of humanity." "There are definite indications that these were once kind, thoughtful people," he said during a wide-ranging interview. "But, once they lost their ability to hunt and roam freely, they became more concerned with their definition of goodness -- to fill one's stomach." The 49-year-old anthropologist spent a total of 24 months living with the Ik, learning to "despise" them for what they had become, he said. "I realize it isn't very professional to get involved with the group one is studying," he said. "But, I don't see how one can separate oneself from it." The Ik were so concerned with getting food, he said, that they displayed no emotion about taking it out of the hands or mouths of their own children, parents or the crippled. No effort was made to help those unable to get their own food, he said. '.'In their own way," he added, "they have found a way to survive in this world. I don't know if I can agree to it, but it works for them." Turnbull said he would like to see more persons break off into small "moral societies" where they become dependent on each other and "learn to be loving." NEW YOKK (AP) --Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Has your income doubled in the last 10 years? Well, your federal taxes have. According to the Tax Foundation, federal taxes for the 1974 fiscal year, which starts July 1, will average $1,179 for every American, more than double the $582 they were a decade ago. It was hard to tell what time it was in I860. Although Day- lighl Saving time had not then been heralded, there were 50 different standard times in use in the United States. Do you have any idea where the following common everyday phrases came from? "Thanks for nothing." "To give the devil his due." "A peck of trouble." "Every dog has his day." "A finger in every pie." "Let the worst come to the worst." "A wild goose chase." Well, every one of them came from a single book, "Don Quixote," written more than 350 years ago by Miguel de Cervantes. Christopher Latham Sholcs, who in 1873 invented the first successful typewriter, also composed the sentence that has been connected with it ever since: "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party." Sholes, who sold his valuable patent for only $12,000 commented later wryly: "All my life 1 have been trying to escape being a millionaire, and at 'last I think I have succeeded." Quotable notables: "I hate mankind for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am." ·-- Samuel Johnson. Nature notes: Many people think snakes are slimy, actually their skins are clean and quite dry. Wasps have a better sense of smell than you do and use it to hunt food. Although the wild turkey usually prefers lo escape its enemies by run-. By HAL BOYLE ning through cover, il can fly quite well. If your child had an appelile like a mole, he could eat his bodyweight in food once a day. Hirsuile power: Your'hair, if woven together, could probably hold a weight of 10 Ions without breaking. Incidentally, reheads have the fewest number of head hairs -- about 90,000. If you're a brunette, you probably hove 120,000 and if a -blonde about 140,000.' Know your language: Do you know why that little platform on the mast of a ship is called Ihe "crow's nest"? Because the ancienl Vikings actually kept crows in a container on such a platform. When the ship became lost, they w,ould release one of the birds and follow il as it headed for the nearest land. American whaling ships in the last century perched a member of the crew in a barrel fixed to the headmast lo act as a lookout. The barrel was still called "The crow's nest." Worth remembering: "Be not disturbed at being misunderstood; be disturbed at not understanding." Health and geography: Where you live partly determines your health costs. A national study found health and medical expenses generally lowest in small communities, particularly, in the South and Midwest. But they were 22 per cent above the national average in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area and 55 per cent higher in Anchorage, Alaska. Odd highway fact: Instead of dreading rain, many professional drivers welcome it -- at least occasionally -- because, although they have to drive more cautiously, it relieves the monotony of driving on dry traffic-jammed lanes. It was Abraham Lincoln who observed, "Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real Ihing."
