Giulio Cesare - Metropolitan Opera
April 04, 2013 -

The opera that conquered London in Handel's time comes to the Met in David McVicar's inventive production -- which triumphed at its Glyndebourne premiere in 2005. The Guardian praised McVicar's "witty, sexy, and tragic post-colonial framing of Handel's Caesar and Cleopatra tale," which incorporates elements of Baroque theater and 19th-century British imperialism to illuminate the opera's ideas of love, war, and empire building. The world's leading countertenor, David Daniels, sings the title role opposite Natalie Dessay as an irresistibly exotic Cleopatra. Baroque specialist Harry Bicket conducts.

Composer Portraits - Rebecca Saunders - Miller Theatre
April 04, 2013 - New York

A star pupil of Wolfgang Rihm, Rebecca Saunders (b. 1969) favors a delicate, sparse aesthetic. "From this surface of apparent silence," the composer explains, "I try to draw out and mold sound and color." Finding inspiration in the work of Samuel Beckett, the philosophy of Goethe, and Wassiliy Kandinsky's writings on spirituality in art, Saunders' seems to strip away the extraneous and ornamental in order to uncover the essential within. Her works explore the unique timbres of idiosyncratic solo instruments and chamber ensembles, all performed with thoughtfulness by the members of Either/Or. The Guardian calls Saunders "one of the most intriguing British composers of her generation," and for good reason.

Opening, Randy Jackson of Zebra

But these conventional measurements fall short when you're assessing the impact of The Beach Boys. To be sure, this band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.

DECENTER: An Exhibition on the Centenary of the 1913 Armory Show - Abrons Arts Center
Through April 07, 2013 - New York

In the 1913 Armory Show, the Association of American Painters and Sculptors endeavored to showcase the "New Spirit" of modern art. On its 100th anniversary, we will celebrate the Cubist paintings and sculptures in its galleries with an exhibition featuring 27 contemporary artists. Their artworks explore changes in perception precipitated by our digital age, and closely parallel the cubist vernacular of fragmentation, non-linearity, simultaneity, and decenteredness. Our exhibition poses the question "What is the legacy of Cubism in the hundred years since the Armory Show's radical display of modern European and American art, and especially, how has this become relevant again in our digital age?" The show will exhibit a core group of artworks in the gallery, and also feature a corresponding iInternet component of digital works in an online gallery.

Over 25 years of scientific research shows that hearing babies who sign typically have the following benefits: Earlier communication: babies can produce signs as early as 6 months old--long before their ability to speak develops. • Fewer Temper-tantrums • Less Frustration • Improved confidence • Better adjusted • Average between 8 and 13 point Higher IQ • Larger vocabulary • Tend to speak and read early • Supports Spelling • It can have amazing results for children with speech or communication challenges, as well as other special needs • Helps children link symbols (signs) with concepts (meaning) and the spoken word • Provides another mode of learning (tactile and kinesthetic) • Increased bonding (signing is face-to-face communication) • Clarifies speech (does "Ba" mean baby? bottle? ball? bug? Banana?) • Exposure to a second language: ASL, and an easy bridge to learn other spoken languages • Being able to communicate with your child when verbal communication is difficult or frowned on (either quiet places or noisy places...or from a distance on the playground) • Easier and earlier diagnosis of health problems. One pre-verbal baby kept signing “thirsty” no matter how much she drank. Testing showed that she was diabetic, which they wouldn’t have known until she was very sick had it not been for signing! • Child can express him/herself when too shy or embarrassed to speak • Opportunity to befriend children who use sign to communicate • Provides and alternative means of communication when speech may be difficult, for example, after a tonsillectomy, laryngitis, etc. • Feels like play Classes will meet one hour a week for 8 weeks.

Shoe Obsession - Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology
Through April 13, 2013 - New York

Shoe Obsession examines our culture's ever-growing fascination with extravagant and fashionable shoes. Accessories used to be just that?secondary to clothing fashions. Today, however, shoes have become the main fashion story, replacing the "It bag" as the most desirable accessory. High-heeled shoes "the fashion shoes of the 21st century" have become so tall that even a 4-inch heel is considered "low." Shoe Obsession features over 150 examples of the most extraordinary shoe styles of the 21st-century, highlighting the new concepts, constructions, materials, and types of embellishment that have positioned shoes at the height of fashion. The popularity of designer shoes has grown rapidly. The television series Sex in the City, which was broadcast from 1998 to 2004, is often credited with helping to launch the cult for designer shoes. Who can forget Carrie Bradshaw's Manolo Blahnik pumps ? or her assertion of "a woman's right to shoes." Blahnik's popularity paved the way for other high-end shoe designers, a number of whom have become celebrities in their own right. Christian Louboutin's undeniably sexy shoes?with their signature red soles?have established him as one of the best-known footwear designers in the world.
