New York City Ballet: Balanchine's Short Stories

David H Koch Theater

Until January 29, 2017

The New York City Ballet present three of ballet master George Balanchine's most compelling narrative ballets in this new program for Winter 2017. From a 19th century macabre romance to the redemptive arc of prodigal sun, finally ending on the high spectacle of Firebird, you'll see the incredible company pay tribute to his adept storytelling, choreographic talent and the genius that makes him a revered figure and still one of the artform's most influential voices.

New York City Ballet: All Balanchine - Winter

David H Koch Theater

Until February 5, 2017

NYCB present another not-to-be-missed tribute to their legendary patriarch. With Winter 2017's program containing three of Balanchine's works, including the monumental spectacle of Swan Lake, these presentations will be a sure treat for fans of the man or his beloved company.

Metropolitan Opera: Rigoletto

Metropolitan Opera House

January 20-April 27, 2017

Director Michael Mayer's hit production of Verdi's powerful tragedy sees 1500s Mantua replaced by a seedy and gaudy Las Vegas in 1960; the ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence. As with many operas, the themes of revenge, mistaken identities and divine intervention feature heavily in this; something that was quite hidden in Victor Hugo's original novel until Verdi put it to music.

New York City Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty

David H Koch Theater

February 8-19, 2017

Prepare to be mesmerized by this wonderfully magical ballet, recounting one of our most beloved fairy-tales, that of the cursed Princess Aurora, otherwise known as The Sleeping Beauty. The first ballet scored by Tchaikovsky, New York City ballet's grand production is a sweeping luxurious spectacle, a joyous celebration of romance and fantasy.


Vivian Beaumont Theater

March 23-June 18, 2017

J. T. Rogers Oslo lands on Broadway just in time for 2017 Tonys! Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher (The King and I), this compelling drama tells the story of the secret negotiations that led to the Oslo Peace Accords. The play focuses on a couple of young Norwegian diplomats at the heart of the action, who succeeded, where so many others had failed, in brokering meaningful discussions between Israel and Palestine.
