By Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - With its full-size boxing ring, giant video screens and techno wizardry, "Rocky" the musical thrilled audiences on Broadway with its rousing finale, but critics said overall it wasn't a knockout.

Broadway veteran Andy Karl, who starred in "Jersey Boys" and "Wicked," fills Stallone's shoes as Rocky Balboa and Margo Seibert, in her Broadway debut, is the mousey pet shop employee Adrian who wins his heart.

By Michael Roddy LONDON (Reuters) - Moldovan violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja has already applied her virtuosity to a musical depiction of the Columbia shuttle disaster, down to the sounds of the rockets blasting the doomed craft into space and its disintegration on re-entry. The stunning performance of Hungarian composer Peter Eotvos's 2006 concerto "seven" - so named for the seven astronauts who died in the 2003 disaster - was last year's Gramophone magazine recording of the year. Her death affected Kopatchinskaja so deeply that she said she got carried away composing the music and is not sure she can play it. During a recent visit to London, Kopatchinskaja added another arrow to her quiver by leading, as first violinist, the conductor-less Britten Sinfonia.
