Lorraine Leckie Live - Banjo Jim's
November 06, 2010 -

Join singer-songwriter Lorraine Leckie at Banjo Jim's on Saturday, November 6 at 7PM where she will perform songs from her new album, Martini Eyes.

Whether giving concise instructions to the new man of the house on the subtleties on how to behave at a funeral for the old man of the house ("Don't Giggle at the Corpse") or painting a divine yet eerie portrait of her so-called life in dramatic fashion ("Trouble"), Leckie takes on a folksy Dust Bowl groove that would frighten Edgar Allen Poe or perhaps Nick Cave. Still, she is ever more captivating--tangling the listener in all of her fables with an uncompromising allure that is consistent throughout.

Roc Nation Artist HUGO performs with One eskimO - Highline Ballroom
November 09, 2010 -

British born and Thailand raised, Hugo, combines Rock'n'Roll with the age of hip-hop. After Beyonce got a hold of a track he wrote and put it on her "I am Sasha Fierce" album, Hugo got a call from Jay-Z's camp and was then signed to Roc Nation and the rest is history! His debut album, Old Tyme Religion, due out early next year, is a sort of "retro gangsta-rock" from a mix of blues, country, rock and soul over hip hop drums. Hugo currently has two songs on ITUNES, his cover of 99 Problems and "Bread & Butter."

Intermezzo - New York City Opera Company
Through November 20, 2010 -

Inspired by an incident in his own marriage, Strauss's lighthearted domestic comedy creates an artistic rendering of his relationship with his temperamental yet charming spouse. Soprano Mary Dunleavy embodies the hot-headed wife who jumps to conclusions after intercepting a misdirected love note addressed to her husband, sung by baritone Nicholas Pallesen. In crafting the libretto to this rarely performed work, Strauss pioneered a new genre of opera where everyday events--phone conversations, ice skating parties, card games--become the subject matter. The plot unfolds in a series of short vignettes with orchestral interludes following the fast-paced action in this witty production directed by Leon Major.

A Quiet Place - New York City Opera Company
Through November 21, 2010 -

Leonard Bernstein's final stage work receives its long-awaited New York premiere. "A Quiet Place" was originally written as a sequel to his "Trouble in Tahiti", which perfectly captured the jazzy heartbeat of 20th-century America. That popular one-act satire is incorporated as a flashback when the estranged family reunites at a funeral after 20 years. The eloquent libretto by Stephen Wadsworth reveals a moving parable of alienation, strife, and reconciliation in a dysfunctional middle-class family.
