Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

The laugh-out-loud funniest musical of the Broadway season. Yes it's another tune-filled spin on a hit movie...but this one is actually good

Why See New York Philharmonic - Music Across Borders: Dancing Across Europe - The Waltz?

From folk dance to fashion

Join the New York Philharmonic for this welcome addition to the Young People's Concert series, a fascinating look at the history of the Waltz, from a dance once thought thoroughly indecent to the very symbol of elegance and class. Using famed pieces from composers such as Johann Strauss II, Ravel and Tchaikovsky, the whole family will enjoy this sweeping special.

First thought to have originated in Europe in the 16th Century, the Waltz was the preserve of the peasants for many years, with detractors criticising the 'godless' way the dancers are close to each other. But by the 18th century this view had changed. Once thought shocking, it was introduced into Austrian, French, Russian and English high society, where it went on to evolve into the art form we know today.
