National Ballet of China: The Peony Pavilion

David H Koch Theater

July 8-10, 2015

Written in 1598, The Peony Pavilion is one of the most enduring love stories in Chinese literature. Originally performed as a Kunqu Opera in a staggering 20 hour cycle, choreographer Fei Bo has translated it into a sublimely enchanting and pioneering two act ballet that fuses Western style choreography together with traditional Chinese influences.

National Ballet of China: The Red Detachment of Women

David H Koch Theater

July 11-12, 2015

Often referred to as the ballet performed for Nixon on his visit to China in 1972, (so much so there is even an opera based on the event), The Red Detachment of Women is an important icon of the Cultural Revolution and still remains one of China's most popular ballets, capturing and immortalizing a pivotal time in the country's history.

Kafka On The Shore

David H Koch Theater

July 23-26, 2015

As part of this year's Lincoln Center Festival, Haruki Murakami's mysterious novel comes to the stage, directed by renowned Japanese director Yukio Ninagawa. In a parallel tale that switches back and forward between a 15-year old Kafka and an older man in search of a powerful stone, we are treated to an Oedipal tale that explores the role of fate, our uncertain grasp of reality, religious tradition and the importance of cultural legacy in Japanese society. With both characters treading the line between fantasy and reality, Ninagawa uses an elaborate staging of this ethereal novel.

Metropolitan Opera: Anna Bolena

Metropolitan Opera House

September 26, 2015-January 9, 2016

This emotionally powerful opera depicts the last days of Anne Boleyn, the doomed second wife of England's heir-mad King Henry VIII. As his attention in his wife wains, her last days at court are numbered as he prepares the altar for his mistress and Anne's friend and confidant Jane Seymour. Defiant, but increasingly delusional as a fatal plot is cooked up against her.

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.
