The Death of Klinghoffer - Metropolitan Opera

In what many John Adams admirers consider his greatest operatic composition, this new production takes place almost 30 years after the events chronicled in his meditative opus about the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship.

Violinist Itamar Zorman's Carnegie Hall Recital Debut - Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall
November 05, 2014 - New York

Superb violinist Itamar Zorman, described as a "virtuoso of emotions" (Goettinger Tageblatt), will make his Carnegie Hall recital debut as part of Carnegie Hall's Distinctive Debuts Series at Weill Recital Hall on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 7:30pm. Zorman was recently awarded the 2014 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, the 2013 Avery Fisher Career Grant, and in 2011 was one of two top prize winners at the Tchaikovsky International Violin Competition. His program, with pianist Kwan Yi, will include J.S. Bach's Solo Violin Sonata No. 3 in C Major; Schnittke's Violin Sonata No. 2, "Quasi una sonata;" Hindemeth's Solo Violin Sonata, Op. 31, No. 1; and Brahms' Violin Sonata No. 3 in D Minor. The Hindemith and Brahms are included on Zorman's debut album, which also features music by Messiaen, Schubert, and Chausson, released in Europe by Profil-Editions Gunther Hanssler in spring 2014. Zorman is a rare talent whose performances combine unparalleled technical prowess with unabashedly sincere emotional depth. The Guardian describes his playing as "astonishingly intimate and intense," and the New York Times raved that his "splendid playing conveyed precisely the right mix of tenderness, agitation and spiritual succor." Of a recent recital in Houston, the critic Joel Luks, writing for Culturemap Houston, wrote, "I allowed myself to cry. I wasn't the only one. Up until then, I was prepared to jot down a glowing review, the kind that is dotted with Hollywood-type movie remarks flashing across a silver screen - like riveting, gripping and two thumbs up. But in addition to having to scheme my escape in hopes of avoiding colleagues - because who wants to see a grown man cry - the whole premise of my critique was shot to hell. Technique can be taught and practiced . . . What's puzzling is how someone at a young age . . . is able to subsume so much aesthetic puissance into miniscule sonorities? That I couldn't explain." $38. Presented by Carnegie Hall's Distinctive Debuts Series

'To The Inhabitants of Great Britain': The Robert R. Livingston Letters - New-York Historical Society
Through November 07, 2014 - New York

In the late spring of 1775, New York jurist Robert R. Livingston (1746-1813) drafted a letter titled "The Twelve United Colonies, by Their Delegates in Congress, to the Inhabitants of Great-Britain." Commissioned by the Second Continental Congress as an eleventh-hour attempt to reconcile with the mother country, it is a striking piece of testimony to the internal struggles of colonial leaders and patriots as they tried to develop a framework of reconciliation, and sheds new light on the period leading up to the Declaration of Independence and the final break with Great Britain. The letter was discovered last summer in the Morris-Jumel Mansion in New York City, which served as George Washington's headquarters during the Revolutionary War, and was recently acquired by Brian Hendelson, a noted New Jersey-based private collector. Hitherto unknown and unstudied, the manuscript will be on view at New-York Historical in the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library, and will remain on loan to New-York Historical for purposes of study and display for two years.

Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in the Roarin’ Twenties at AUPAC - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center
Through November 09, 2014 - Garden City

One of Shakespeare’s most famous comedies, Twelfth Night is a wild story of love and mistaken identities. Many of Shakespeare’s classic comedic devices – a young woman dressed as a young man, twins, fools, and gender-confused romance, to name a few – make an appearance through what is widely considered his last “happy comedy.” To express fully and uniquely the rich romance of Twelfth Night, Adelphi’s production will be set in the 1920s on the French Riviera. This combination of place and time allows for the exotic expression of the style and elegance that is central to the play, while being true to the story’s need for a beautiful seaside location. The setting gives as much of an opportunity to the Department of Theatre's talented design faculty and students as the text of the play provides for the actors.

Gilded New York - Museum of the City of New York
Through November 11, 2014 - Upper West Side

Inaugurating the Museum's Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery, Gilded New York explores the city's visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. In New York, this era was marked by the sudden rise of industrial and corporate wealth, amassed by such titans as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Jay Gould, who expressed their high status through extravagant fashions, architecture, and interior design. The exhibition presents a lavish display of some 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects, all created between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. The dazzling works in the exhibition will illuminate an era when members of the new American aristocracy often displayed their wealth in storied balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and hotels. It was a time when New York became the nation's corporate headquarters and a popular Ladies' Mile of luxury retail establishments and cultural institutions helped launch the city to global prominence.

Through November 14, 2014 - Flushing

100 NYC Public Sculptures at Queens Museum is a site-specific project that guides viewers without the need for travel or motion, and questions how a journey within a specific geographic sphere can be a work of art in itself. The installation is composed of 100 directional signs, each with a drawing of a public sculpture in NYC and the distance (mapped with GPS coordinates) between the source- sculpture and the sign. Viewers participate in this project by experiencing each sculpture, whether through the original works or their representational drawn counterparts, calling attention to the very specific, transformative space between object and audience. (Architectural historian John Kriskiewics will offer a walk through the Public Sculptures in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on June 8.)

Grasshopper Grove - Hudson Highlands Nature Museum Outdoor Discovery Center
Through November 16, 2014 - Cornwall

Grasshopper Grove is a natural play area for young children that encourages them to explore the outdoor world, get their hands dirty, and have fun. Children can hop from stump to stump, dance, sing and perform in the Adirondack lean-to, lie down on top of a hill and watch the clouds make pictures in the sky, read a story with Mom or Dad in the rustic gazebo, water and weed a garden, and construct roads in the sand and dirt pile. These simple activities strengthen eye-hand coordination and muscle development while fostering creativity, critical thinking, appropriate risk-taking, problem solving, and cooperation, which are all critical to healthy childhood development. Grasshopper Grove follows a design developed in collaboration with Museum staff, board, parents and preschool students by one of the world's leaders in the field, Adam Bienenstock of Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds. Beginning with a half-acre of field surrounded by a rough stone wall and mature shag bark hickory trees, the area was graded to incorporate a low hill surrounded by a path, a dry stream bed and a higher hill offering a view of nearby fields and ponds. Taking inspiration from the 'wild' areas of the Outdoor Discovery Center, where the Museum's Young Naturalist Preschoolers love to play, elements were added to the area that include a fallen oak tree for climbing, large boulders, a wooden gazebo and Adirondack lean-to and an area of 'loose parts' for building. A series of cedar troughs catch water flowing from an old fashioned hand pump into the dry stream bed.

Great White Shark - Maritime Aquarium - IMAX
Through November 26, 2014 - Norwalk

No other modern animal may command both fear and fascination as much as the great white shark ? but The Maritime Aquarium's new IMAX?film suggests, instead, that these predators mainly need help and respect. This film unravels the mystery of the creature by telling the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain. "Our mission is to change people's attitudes toward the great white," said Steve McNicholas, co-director of the film. "It's not the menacing, evil predator it's made out to be. It's simply performing its crucial role at the top of the ocean's food chain. Great whites are not monsters any more than the polar bears or lions that we revere." The 40-minute film takes viewers around the world to great-white hotspots and examines the animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white, including shark expert Michael Rutzen, who openly scuba dives among them. September 2-November 26.
