The Queen of Spades - Metropolitan Opera
November 29, 2009 - Manhattan

Seiji Ozawa returns to the Met after an absence of more than 15 years. He conducts Tchaikovsky's adaptation of Pushkin's engrossing tale, with heldentenor Ben Heppner, above, as the soldier whose obsession with cards leads him down a spiral of madness and murder. Maria Guleghina stars as the innocent woman drawn into his descent.

Marie Digby - Joe's Pub
December 01, 2009 -

From the opening beats of Breathing Underwater, the listener encounters a bold new Marie Digby. In marked contrast to the stripped-down vibe of her debut disc, Unfold, the album's fuller sound enhances Marie's (pronounced Mar-ee-AY) emotionally rich storytelling and dramatic vocals. The album is a deeply personal snapshot of her life -- full of the kind of exposed emotions that make great songs.

Anjlulie Concert! - Terminal 5
December 04, 2009 -

Raised by immigrant parents from Guyana in the Toronto suburb of Oaksville, singer Anjulie has her feet planted firmly in the world of pop, but her music is influenced by the multi-cultural sounds that were favored by her older siblings. At 17 she landed an internship at the Metalworks recording studio in Toronto. It was there she met Jon Levine, the keyboardist from the Philosopher Kings. The pair became songwriting partners, writing tracks for teen pop singer Emma Roberts' debut album, along with the Philosopher Kings' album Castles, both released in 2005. Three years later, Kreesha Turner would have Canadian Top 10 hit with the duo's song "Don't Call Me Baby." In 2009 Anjulie released her own single, "Boom," a teaser for her debut album scheduled for release later that same year.

Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica - Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)
Through December 05, 2009 -

Hip-hop savant cum shrewd cultural critic, the tireless DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid/Paul D. Miller has always kept one ear to deftly-crafted sound and the other to social concerns. In Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica, he heeds the call of a rapidly changing continent by letting it finally speak for itself.

Based around DJ Spooky's sound recordings in the Antarctic that explore the acoustic qualities of ice, Terra Nova allows us to encounter the climate crisis with unprecedented intimacy, giving voice to the groaning landscape as it undergoes irrevocable change. Members of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) perform live with DJ Spooky's hip-hop and sample-infused soundscape to create a riveting electronic symphony as live video projections reconstruct Antarctica -- the real and the imagined -- in this acoustic portrait of our embattled Earth.
