A Concertmaster’s Life
Glenn Dicterow comes full circle during his farewell season as the Phil’s longest-serving Concertmaster: in December he’ll be spotlighted in solos from Richard Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life), one of the first pieces he performed with the Orchestra, on Live From Lincoln Center.
“That’s one way to get one’s feet wet: trial by fire. Strauss must have hated violinists because he wrote the most challenging, impossibly hard licks for the violin. It ends with one of the most heavenly dialogues that Strauss ever wrote for solo violin and horn.”

Don’t Let Your Golden Chance Pass You By
DC Theatre Scene has this suggestion:

Act quickly – you only have a few days to view one of the greatest concert presentations of a musical that I’ve ever seen … the New York Philharmonic’s staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel. 
Now – at least for the balance of this week – there is the chance to witness Carousel’s grandeur as a unified piece of art: music, lyrics and drama. Each element works with the others and they become something more than they are alone. 

Watch Nathan Gunn and Kelli O’Hara (above),not to mention the Phil and the rest of the star-studded cast, here.

Love on the Carousel
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel focuses on the ill-fated relationship of central characters Julie Jordan and Billy Bigelow, so audiences for the New York Philharmonic’s recent star-studded production probably weren’t aware of the real-life love story of New York City Ballet principals Robert Fairchild (as Carnival Boy) and Tiler Peck (as Louise). The couple announced their engagement shortly afterward. 
Don’t miss their captivating ballet sequence when the Philharmonic’s performance of Carousel airs on Live From Lincoln Center tonight on PBS stations. (Check local listings.)

The Future is Now
Congratulations are in order for Jessie Mueller (our Carrie Pipperidge in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel at the end of February), who this week was named one of Time Out New York’s Future Legends of New York Theater!
TONY writes of Mueller’s 2011 Broadway debut in On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever, “Her exuberant, swinging version of ‘Ev’ry Night at Seven’ tore down the house, and her rich, supple voice and comedic flair have kept her onstage ever since.” You can relive Mueller’s tour-de-force performance in Carousel on April 26 when our production is broadcast on the PBS series Live From Lincoln Center. (Check local listings.)

… and this was what I was looking for. Audra McDonald and Josh Groban at the tribute concert on New Year’s Eve 2012 to composer Marvin Hamlisch (most famously known for A Chorus Line), leading one of the finale numbers What I Did For Love.

New York Philharmonic adds: You can watch the full concert here.

You’ll Never Walk Alone
Not with a cast like this! This was a real nice clambake before — with the previously announced cast including Kelli O’Hara, Nathan Gunn, and Stephanie Blythe — but now the show is bustin’ out all over with the addition of Shuler Hensley, Jason Danieley, Jessie Mueller, Kate Burton, and John Cullum.
Did you catch all the Carousel song titles in this post? If not, hop on board for a Philharmonic performance February 27 through March 2 ,or tune-in when Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts the production on April 26 for some Rogers and Hammerstein education.

"It’s going to be hard to stand around when I’m hosting that particular episode not to burst out into song."
Audra McDonald shares with Theatermania what might be her biggest concern as host of Live from Lincoln Center, when it airs the Philharmonic’s performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel. The star got her big break in the 1994 revival of the show, for which she won the Tony as Best Featured Actress in a Musical.
She’ll have to relinquish the stage this time to Kelli O’Hara, who takes the role of Julie Jordan, opposite Nathan Gunn as Billy Bigelow, in Philharmonic performances of Carousel February 28-March 2. 
Live from Lincoln Center will air a filmed performance on April 26. (Check local listings.)
