Tomorrow, our friends at the New York Philharmonic open their 172 season with a special gala concert featuring dance-inspired orchestral music by Osvaldo Golijov, Astor Piazzola and Maurice Ravel, led by Music Director Alan Gilbert and special guest soloist Yo-Yo Ma.

Line-up on the Josie Robertson Plaza for a free ticket (giveaway starts at 8:00am), and take in some tango lessons while you wait, courtesy of Triangulo. More information here.
Tonight, our friends at the Metropolitan Opera open their 2013-14 season with a performance of Tchaikovksy’s Eugene Onegin. Don’t have a ticket? That’s okay! You can watch from public viewing screens in Times Square or right here at Lincoln Center on the Josie Robertson Plaza. Details here.
