The New York Philharmonic will perform music from the show, plus some Gershwin tunes and patriotric favorites tonight in its Summertime Classics series.
To get here? Remember, the Bronx is up, the Battery’s down, and Lincoln Center is in between.

One Surreal Game-Changer
Gyorgy Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre gets a nod as NPR’s Deceptive Cadence blog surveys the opera landscape for game-changingl postwar works. The black comedy shows Ligeti’s dramatic sense of humor from the first note: “The piece, although not performed often, seems to be a success whenever it shows up, as was the case when it became the hit of the New York Philharmonic’s 2009-10 season.”
Take another walk through the Philharmonic’s hit production of Ligeti’s “anti-anti-opera” here.
