Another Opening, Another Show

Gail Wein
August 27, 2017

Pack away your shorts and sandals, and haul out your Going Out duds. It’s time for opening night in New York.

New York Philharmonic gets its season underway on September 19. The incoming music director Jaap Van Zweden leads our hometown band in the powerful and majestic Symphony No. 5 by Gustav Mahler. The following week, on September 25, the Metropolitan Opera presents its glitzy and glam opening night performance: Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece Norma, featuring Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role. Previous opening nights have been simulcast on Lincoln Center Plaza and in Times Square; keep your eye out for announcements.

Carnegie Hall serves up its opening night on October 4 with an all-American program by the Philadelphia Orchestra, Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting. Lang Lang and Chick Corea are featured soloists in a special two-piano version of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, plus music from Bernstein’s ever-popular West Side Story.

September 15-24, the Met Museum offers ten performances of “Farewell My Concubine” performed by the Shanghai Peking Opera. Its a classic tale of love and suicide, presented in a one-hour performance at The Met's Astor Court. The venue is small, and the tickets are quite pricey, but this is a unique opportunity to see this Chinese masterpiece in an intimate setting.

The Resonant Bodies Festival, which celebrates contemporary vocal music, returns to Roulette on September 5, 6 and 7. Each night features three sets by different performers, including Theo Bleckmann, the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), the legendary vocalist Joan La Barbara and Kamala Sankaram.

And last but not least, the violinist/composer Elektra Kurtis and her Ensemble Elektra give two concerts in New York: September 5 at Cornelia Street Café and September 19 at Symphony Space. Both are part of Kurtis’s “Rituals for Peace” series, and both feature her unique blend of classical and jazz traditions, drawing from Polish, Greek and Arabic origins.
