January 17, 2018 - New York City

Parsifal, Wagner's final opera, is a majestic work that reaches heavenly heights in its spiritually transcendent third act. Wagner was Bruckner's idol, and the sweeping breadth and tonal language of the older composer inspired much of his music. At the time of his death, Bruckner had only completed three movements of his Ninth Symphony, but what he left is compelling and deeply touching. His symphony ascends from a musical primordial haze to a finale that explores new harmonies and peace in its quiet closing benediction.

Of the video, director Braden King explains, "Glen and I talked a lot about the way in which every life is a fight, a struggle. No matter who you are. No matter what you do.

Pre-performance Q&A at 7 PM with the artists moderated by folklorist Hanna Griff-Sleven, Ph.D., Director of Cultural Programs, Museum at Eldridge Street The Klezmatics will return once again to The Town Hall to perform an incredible evening of music with special guests. Since their emergence more than 25 years ago, the Grammy-winning Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music by making aesthetically, politically and musically enveloping recordings, inspiring future generations, creating a large body of work that is enduring, and helping to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a "Jewish roots band," the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form. Today, there are three original members still on their board. Their music is rooted in, but is not a strictly traditional variety of, the klezmer genre - and they are, without a doubt, the most successful proponents of klezmer music in the world. The Klezmatics' music is instead, a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the music and those already familiar with it.

You don't have an end point. When we're driving around and listening to songs, we're not going somewhere per se; we're just driving."

The Toronto pair—Majid Al Maskati, 25, and Jordan Ullman, 21—have definitely made the most of their ride thus far. In 2011, the Bahrain-born Majid linked up with the Canadian Jordan, while attending the University of Toronto.

Debussy takes flight for the last time, Grieg spices his sonata with Norwegian flavors, and Chausson creates a miniature concerto. Debussy was terminally ill when he composed his Violin Sonata, but the music's verve and light speak of happier times. The light in Grieg's Violin Sonata No. 2 is derived from Norwegian folk music and dance that animate its opening and closing movements. In Chausson's rarely performed masterpiece, passages for solo violin and piano alternate and combine with the string quartet, themes cycle from movement to movement, and melodies soar.

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010). Bourgeois's printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,200 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this material, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum's Marron Atrium. The artist's creative process is the organizing principle behind the exhibition. Over the course of her career, Bourgeois constantly revisited the themes of her art, all of which emerged from emotions she struggled with for a lifetime. Also, she said there was no "rivalry" between the mediums in which she worked, noting that "they say the same thing in different ways." Here, her prints and illustrated books will be seen in the context of related sculptures, drawings, and paintings, and within thematic groupings that explore motifs of architecture, the body, and nature, as well as investigation...

Items: Is Fashion Modern? - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi's 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques—extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use. Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology. The Items: Is Fashion Modern? exhibition catalogue, by Paola Antonelli and Michelle Millar Fisher, is available now.

The Chekov Dreams - Theatre ROW
Through February 17, 2018 - New York

The Chekov Dreams: True love never dies. And that's the problem. Jeremy's fiancée has it all. She's beautiful. She's smart. She's captivating. Unfortunately, she's also dead. But hey, no relationship's perfect, right? Besides, she visits him every night in his dreams, so what's to stop them from living happily ever after? Well for one thing, his party boy brother, who's not at all happy with Jeremy sleeping all day, and who has forced him into signing up for an acting class. And for another, his overly enthusiastic scene partner, with whom he's stuck working on a scene by Chekhov – the one writer he loathes. Worse yet, her infectious personality is starting to arouse the jealousy of his betrothed, who has just begun to reveal her true powers. His fiancée may be to die for, but will he go that far?

Hindle Wakes - Theatre ROW
Through February 17, 2018 - New York

Hindle Wakes, called, "one of the best plays of modern times" by Theatre Magazine in 1922, mixes questions of ethics, class, custom, and morals into an effervescent fizz of comic realism. It's "wakes week" in Hindle; the mill is closed and the workers are idle. Fanny Hawthorn is relaxing at the seashore with a girlfriend when she runs into Alan Jeffcote, the mill owner's son. Alan takes Fanny to an hotel in Wales for a few days of fun, but the fun stops when their parents find out. Of course, Alan should marry Fanny, the fathers agree. No matter that Alan is engaged already. Must Alan do the right thing and make an honest woman of Fanny, or must he do the right thing and stand by his fiancé?

Jim Caruso's Cast Party - Birdland
Through February 26, 2018 - Manhattan

Jim Caruso's Cast Party is the best thing to happen to nightlife since prohibition ended." Think "American Idol" meets "The Tonight Show." Imagine Martin Short and Liza throw a hip house party around the baby grand…and you're invited! Cast Party is a wildly popular happening that has brought Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night since 2003. It is the ultimate spot to mix and mingle with show folk and the people who love them. Cast Party is a hilariously impromptu variety show where showbiz superstars and up-and-comers deliver jaw-dropping musical performances and razzle-dazzle. Legendary showman Jim Caruso guides the entire affair with razor-sharp humor and the unbridled enthusiasm of an uber-fan. Musical Director Billy Stritch holds court at the ivories, along with Steve Doyle on bass, and Daniel Glass on drums...but the real fun starts when the audience participates in the onstage festivities. Broadway legends, jazzers, cabaret divas, starry-eyed tourists and kids right off the bus take to the stage and entertain each other. If you have a voice, a dream and some sheet music, your Cast Party moment just might be at hand.... (read more)

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band - Birdland
Through February 28, 2018 - Manhattan

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public's imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57's founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of inte...

Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age - The Museum of Modern Art
Through April 08, 2018 -

Drawn primarily from MoMA's collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989 brings artworks produced using computers and computational thinking together with notable examples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The artists featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerging technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. They channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture, plotter drawing, computer animation, and video installation. Photographers and architects likewise recognized these technologies' capacity to reconfigure human communities and the built environment. Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller, Waldemar Cordeiro, Charles Csuri, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, Beryl Korot, Vera Molnár, Cedric Price, and Stan VanDerBeek, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Machines Corporation, IBM, Olivetti, ...

Stephen Shore - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through May 28, 2018 - New York

Stephen Shore encompasses the entirety of the artist's work of the last five decades, during which he has conducted a continual, restless interrogation of image making, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager to his current engagement with digital platforms. One of the most significant photographers of our time, Stephen Shore (American, b. 1947) has often been considered alongside other artists who rose to prominence in the 1970s by capturing the mundane aspects of American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous images. But Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large-format cameras in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and in the 2000s taking up the opportunities of digital photography, digital printing, and social media. The artist's first survey in New York to include his entire career, this exhibition will both allow for a fuller understanding of Shore's work, and demonstrate his singular vision—defined by an interest in daily life, a taste for serial and often systematic approaches, a strong intellectual underpinning, a restrained style, sly hum...

Compass Song - Times Square
Through August 03, 2018 - New York

Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Ti... (read more)

Come From Away - Schoenfeld Theatre
Through September 30, 2018 - New York

Come From Away is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander's air strip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we're all part of a global family.

From the Collection: Artists at Mid to Late Career - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through November 04, 2018 - New York

This presentation in the Museum's fourth-floor collection galleries will focus exclusively on works made by artists in their mid to late careers. Spanning from the late 1960s to today, the installation chronicles the many years of sustained experimentation, daring invention, and thoughtful reconsideration that distinguish an individual artist's career long after his or her breakthrough moment. Highlighting lesser-known works by prominent artists and key works by some less familiar names, Artists at Mid to Late Career provides another view of the history of art over the last half century. All works are drawn from MoMA's collection, and includes examples by Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Maria Lassnig, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O'Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, and many others.
