Re-Ringing in the New Year

Starting tomorrow, you can re-live the Philharmonic’s colorful Chinese New Year celebrations as PBS broadcasts excerpts from our 2013 concert ushering in the Lunar New Year, featuring Tibetan folk tunes performed by the Snow Lotus Trio (pictured above), Peking Opera star Wang Yen performing The Drunken Concubine, and two works inspired by the ancient Chinese poem “Song of the Earth” (including Mahler’s immortal setting). Highlights from our 2012 celebration include Lang Lang (also pictured above) with the first movement of Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1, the Quintessenso Mongolian Children’s Choir, and bamboo flutist Junqiao Tang.

The special is set to air tomorrow at 9:00 pm and Saturday at 3:00 am on NJTV, 2:00 pm on Saturday on 13-HD, and 3:30 pm on May 26 and 4:00 am on May 31 on WLIW-SD.

"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.)
