Lincoln Center Festival: Heisei Namakmura-za review

"Jaw-dropping spectacle…this production, with its high theatricality, low comedy, subtle musical accompaniment, choral interludes and lush designs, can almost be regarded as a festival in itself." -The New York Times

Lincoln Center Festival: Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker

The New York Times profiles choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker ahead of her company’s Lincoln Center Festival performances (July 8-16). “She was one of the first to perform something in between dance and expressionistic theater,” said Chris Dercon, director of the Tate Modern in London.

Lincoln Center Festival opens tomorrow with performances by Kabuki theater company Heisei Nakamura-za. Three actors stopped by Lincoln Center’s Revson Fountain in costume and makeup shortly after arriving from Tokyo.

"The Passenger" Arrives at Lincoln Center Festival

An operatic work long suppressed, Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s “The Passenger” finally arrives in New York for its local premiere at Lincoln Center Festival this coming week. The New York Times's Zachary Woolfe outlines the drama of the work, the recently rediscovered composer, and the woman behind the story. “It manages to take this horrendous history, an almost unimaginable history, and it never sentimentalizes or wraps it up,” the conductor Patrick Summers said. “It doesn’t try to save anyone. If art is supposed to just ask a question, it just asks us to remember.” More information on the opera here: http://bit.ly/LCFThePassenger
