New York City Ballet: Swan Lake

David H Koch Theater

Until October 1, 2017

The legendary New York City Ballet presents a masterful retelling of the Tchaikovsky-Pepita classic melded with the nuances of George Balanchine's daring one-act version of Swan Lake, deftly brought together under the creative eye of Danish danseur and choreographer Peter Martins. This new full-length production boasts the lucidity, speed and precision that the NYCB is renowned for while keeping elements from the traditional score, culminating in a must-see for first timers and old fans alike!

New York Philharmonic - Van Zweden Conducts Mahler and Glass

David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center

Until September 23, 2017

The New York Phil's 2017/18 season gets underway with a stirring double bill that features music by Mahler and Philip Glass. Conducted by the new Musical Director Designate Jaap van Zweden, after the departure of Alan Gilbert, his first concert also welcomes sibling pianist virtuosos Katia and Marielle Labeque, whose most famous work is their renowed album Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, which was one of the first classical albums to reach gold status. They will be putting their prodigious talents to work on Glass' Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra.

Metropolitan Opera: Norma

Metropolitan Opera House

September 25-December 16, 2017

After finding herself raised up to the level of some of the genre's most celebrated singers on her 2013 debut in the role, Sondra Radvanovsky returns to the Met as Bellini's iconic high-priestess, one of the most ambitious parts in the soprano repertoire. This explosive new production by Sir David McVicar opens the Met's 2017/18 season.

Metropolitan Opera - The Exterminating Angel

Metropolitan Opera House

October 26-November 21, 2017

Much anticipated on these shores since its storming debut at the 2016 Salzburg Festival, the Met present the American premiere of Thomas Ades' dizzying new work. Adapted from the surreal Luis Bunel film of the same name, The Exterminating Angel concerns a fantastical dinner party in a mansion from which the guests cannot escape. Ades' conducts his kaleidoscopic score as chaos descends on the ensemble cast as their strange incarceration leads to madness.
