Claire Tow Theater

Until August 2, 2015

The latest musical from acclaimed writer Dave Molloy, Preludes takes a trip inside the anxiety-riddled mind of Sergei Rachmaninoff, played by Tony winner Gabriel Ebert (Matilda). The story is set in 1900, when the composer was suffering from a crippling bout of writer's block.

Written on Skin

David H Koch Theater

August 13-15, 2015

Finally making its New York debut is George Benjamin's visceral and erotically charged Written on Skin. Since its first appearance at the 2012 Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, opera companies the world over have clamoured to stage this modern masterpiece.


David H Koch Theater

August 27-30, 2015

East meets West in the latest show from famed choreographer Daniel Ezralow (the man behind the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony). This world premiere production is an abstract dance show in tribute to the life and works of Nobel Prize-winning author Pearl S. Buck. The daughter of missionaries, Buck spent much of her life in China, and her novels are credited with humanising the hitherto mythologised Chinese for American readers of the 1930s.

Metropolitan Opera: Turandot

Metropolitan Opera House

September 23, 2015-January 30, 2016

Sworn against love by the death of her mother, proud Princess Turandot prefers watching her suitors meet a grisly end and having their heads placed on spikes at the palace gates, yet they still vie to win her hand. When Calaf takes up the challenge, the unattainable beauty may have met her match in this lavish spectacle and final masterpiece from Puccini.

Metropolitan Opera: The Barber of Seville

Metropolitan Opera House

December 16, 2015-January 2, 2016

The Met Opera will stage Rossini's The Barber of Seville in English for the first time ever this Christmas. Performed countless times by the company before in its original Italian, a more family friendly staging was thought more appropriate for this festive season.
