Lincoln Center at the Movies presents Ballet Hispánico

Friday, September 15, 2017 (*check local listings)

Widely considered the premier Latino dance company in the United States, Ballet Hispánico presents two of its iconic works. The first, CARMEN.maquia, is a modern take on Bizet’s passionate opera. Its physically charged and sensual choreography by Spaniard Gustavo Ramírez Sansano fuses contemporary dance with nods to traditional Latino genres. Club Havana, a virtuosic reimagining of a sizzling nightclub by Cuban-born choreographer Pedro Ruiz, follows. Led by CEO and artistic director Eduardo Vilaro, Ballet Hispánico was founded in 1970 in New York City and has since performed for more than three million people on three continents. This program was originally filmed as part of the Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance series.

 

Falsettos

Fall 2017 (*check local listings)

Nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Falsettos is a hilarious and poignant look at middle-class family dynamics revolving around the life of a gay man, his wife, his lover, his soon‑to‑be‑bar‑mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. With its razor-sharp portrait of a “modern family” in the making, this timely musical manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion. Lincoln Center Theater’s production stars Christian Borle, Stephanie J. Block, Andrew Rannells, and Brandon Uranowitz, all of whom received Tony nominations for their respective performances.

 

New York Philharmonic New Year’s Eve

Sunday, December 31, 2017 (*check local listings)

Live From Lincoln Center continues an annual tradition on PBS by ringing in 2018 with a special New York Philharmonic New Year’s Eve concert. This festive concert event is part of a yearlong, worldwide celebration of the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth. The beloved conductor, composer, author, and leading cultural figure enjoyed a four-decade relationship with the Philharmonic and was its music director from 1958 to 1969. This program will showcase members of the New York Philharmonic in a selection of Bernstein’s best-loved works for the Broadway stage along with appearances from special guests.
