Check out what's happening this weekend in classical music:

Thursday, July 19 - 7:30pm

The Creation @Rose Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center

This is not your mother's 'Creation.' The Catalan theater collective, La Fura dels Baus, takes everything you thought you knew about Haydn's masterpiece and turns it on its head. Prepare your mind to be stretched by this boldly modern European interpretation.

Friday, July 20 - 8pm

Boylesque Bullfight @Company XIV

Text your most experimental lover(s) and have them meet you in Brooklyn for a night that's sure to seduce. Company XIV is masterful at twisting gender and sexual preconceptions into something tantalizingly unrecognizable. I guarantee the performance will leave you with an evening that will linger in your memory for years to come.

Saturday, July 21 - 7:30pm

Macbeth @David H. Koch Theater

See how western classical music and Buddhist chant combine to elevate the classic story that groundbreaking directors, actors, and composers have tackled for centuries. Experience Ninagawa's iconic transportation of Shakespeare's play from medieval Scotland to feudal Japan, proving that greed and unbridled ambition transcend continental boundaries.

Sunday, July 22 - 4pm

Haydn and Beethoven @Barge Music

End your weekend with an afternoon of sophistication at Barge Music. The venue is charming and the entire experience is devoid of unnecessary pomp and circumstance-while still maintaining strict musical standards. It's the perfect way to mentally prepare for the week ahead.
