From Staten Island to Times Square, the classic arts scene in New York is neve quiet. Here is just a sampling of some of the classic arts events happening this week:
American Ballet Theatre’s production of Christopher Wheeldon’s Like Water For Chocolate continues through July 1 at the Metropolitan Opera House. The ballet, with a score by Joby Talbot, concerns the familiar themes of family, forbidden love, and food.
The Metropolitan Opera’s Summer Recital Series continues this week with performances at Williamsbridge Oval in the Bronx (June 26), Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens (June 28), and Clove Lakes Park on Staten Island (June 30). Soprano Erika Baikoff, mezzo-soprano Cierra Byrd, and baritone Thomas Glass will perform, accompanied by assistant conductor Juan José Lázaro.
The Naïssam Jalal Trio will perform July 29 at Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium. Joined by pianist Leonardo Montana and double bassist Claude Tchamitchian, flautist Naïssam Jalal “[transcends] the essence of European and Arab classical music, the art of jazz improvisation, the urgency of Hip-Hop, the euphoria of funk, and the vitality of traditions from Africa.”
