France’s Lyon Opera Ballet returned to the Joyce after 15 years with a wonderful program of works by Merce Cunningham, William Forsythe, and Maguy Marin, which runs through Mar 14. Even though none of these works were New York premieres, it was enormously gratifying to see them all together. Beach Birds (Cunningham) and Duo (Forsythe) [...]

There is nothing in the world of contemporary dance that even comes close to Paul Taylor Dance Company’s annual season at City Center, now through Mar 14. The troupe performs in repertory eighteen dances in different combinations over eighteen shows. Because they’ve been doing it for so long (the company is in its 55th year; [...]

The Park Avenue Armory has become an increasingly alluring venue for performances in the past few years, as the location for events such as Lincoln Center Festival’s Die Soldaten, Ariane Mnouchkine’s Les Ephémères, and now Brennan Gerard/Ryan Kelly’s Armory Show, co-presented by Moving Theater and the Park Avenue Armory. Performed last weekend, the company of [...]

The singer/songwriter Stew wrote the most exciting musical theater piece of the last decade: Passing Strange (recently broadcast for Great Performances), which played at the Public Theatre in 2007 then moved to Broadway’s Belasco Theatre in 2008 (winning Stew a Tony for Best Book of a Musical). Since then, Stew and his longtime collaborator (and [...]

The Guggenheim Works & Process Emotion & Motion program on Feb 14 & 15 featured two top-ranking dancers (étoiles) from the Paris Opera Ballet—Clairemarie Osta and Mathieu Ganio—performing three ballet excerpts, plus the speaker Dr. Helen Fisher. Works & Process events usually trace a theme elucidated in dance performance excerpts, or preview an upcoming performance, [...]

A Little Night Music is a little more “little” this time around. Trevor Nunn’s scaled down version of Stephen Sondheim’s 1973 musical (currently running at the Walter Kerr Theatre) features a mere eight musicians in the “orchestra” pit. In contrast, the first (and only previous) Broadway production boasted a band of 25. This is the [...]

East Village Opera Company, the opera-rock hybrid company, first attracted buzz in 2004 with its live performances at Joe’s Pub. Two members of the company, co-founder Tyley Ross and AnnMarie Milazzo are currently singing miked, rock-infused versions of arias like Lakme‘s Flower Duet, Verdi’s “La donne e mobile,” and Puccini’s “O mio babbino caro” as [...]

Speaking with 28-year-old tenor Sean Panikkar, you get the feeling he could do pretty much anything he set his mind to. He shows virtually none of the stereotypical traits that tend to come to mind when we hear the word “tenor”—the extreme nerves, flightiness, vanity, and so forth. The onetime engineering student, who was a [...]

Last Sunday, going stir crazy on a nasty rainy day, I took (dragged) my son and a friend of my daughter’s out to hear a woodwind quintet called PUFF! at South Orange Performing Arts Center in NJ ($10–15). The ensemble, in residence at Juilliard (an participants in the upcoming Focus! Festival, details after the jump), [...]

“Realness” sounds like one of Stephen Colbert’s words, akin to truthiness. It came in handy recently in a dense, satisfying festival called American Realness, organized by Ben Pryor of TBSPmgmt, which coincided with APAP (Association of Performing Arts Presenters). While the term realness comes from the LGBT community, where it pertains to one’s ability to [...]
