What says Valentine's day more than falling in love with your twin? Nothing. Take a lover, or your best gal-pal, and hunker down for the 90-minute concert presentation. Prepare for Heidi Melton to blow you away.
Thursday - All of the Above @ The DiMenna Center for Classical Music
Explore this boundary pushing sextet as they attempt to create unique and innovative musical experiences by challenging the traditions of the classical concert.
Look - this is a toss-up that really depends on your taste. On one hand, you have Corigliano setting the text of Bob Dylan - which, after the wig-snatching controversy surrounding his recent Nobel Prize, will provide the perfect opportunity to analyze Dylan the poet, separate from his music.
On the other hand, you have a bawdy drag queen who sings in a classically trained countertenor. It really just depends on what kind of Friday night you're looking to have...
Saturday - Juilliard415: Handel in Rome @Alice Tully Hall
I'm a sucker for some good Handel and have been caught booty dancing to him at my desk on more than on occasion... Check out The Juilliard School's Historical Performance Ensemble tackle some of Handel's infectious work. Though, I'd keep the booty popping to a minimum...if you can.
Sunday - Romeo and Juliet @ New York City Ballet
End Valentine's week with Prokofiev's stunning score.
