World Stage on Screen--
Der Fliefende Hollander [link]

Jacob Burns, Pleasantville

Tim Albery's acclaimed production is a darkly insightful account of Wagner's masterful early opera, The Flying Dutchman, starring Bryn Terfel conducted by Andris Nelsons.The Flying Dutchman has been cursed for eternity. Once every seven years he is allowed to come ashore to seek redemption. He may have found it in Senta, a woman who longs for escape from her dreary life. The performance lasts about 2 hours 30 minutes; there is no intermission.
Thurs. Apr 16 @ 2pm: NT Live: The Hard Problem
LIVE FROM LONDON. The Hard Problem is Tom Stoppard’s first play for the stage since Rock ’n’ Roll in 2006, and his first for the National since his trilogy,The Coast of Utopia, 2002. Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brain-science institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness?This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the MRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask?
Tues. Apr 21 @ 2pm: Swan Lake
Anthony Dowell's production of the greatest romantic ballet draws upon the opulence of 1890s Russia. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is instantly captivated and determines to break the spell that holds her captive. The performance lasts about three hours, including two intermissions.

Michele LaRue Performs
"Someone Must Wash the Dishes" [link]

Irvington Library

In the 1900's, many women strongly opposed women getting the right to vote – but none argued with more charm, prettier clothes—and less logic—than the fictional speaker in this satiric monologue, written by pro-suffragist Marie Jenney Howe in 1912. "Woman suffrage is the reform against nature," declares Howe's unlikely, but irresistibly likable heroine.

Joan Osborne [link]
Purpl, Hastings

Considered one of the great voices of her generation, Joan Osborne is a multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy nominee. Her debut album, "Relish," wove together strands of American roots music, poetic lyrics and impassioned vocals, and produced the international hit "(What if God Was) One of Us." Osborne has released several albums, toured extensively as both a solo artist and as a member of The Grateful Dead. She has appeared in the Grammy Award-winning documentary "Standing in the Shadows of Motown," and shared the stage with Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris and Patti Smith to name just a few. Osborne's latest album "Love and Hate" is "alternately sexy and sassy, rough and ragged. And it's all so well executed that it just flows with no forcing, no faltering." -Pop Matters
Saturday, April 4 @ 8pm
An Intimate Solo/Acoustic Performance
by Citizen Cope [link]

The Capitol Theatre, Port Chester
Born Clarence Greenwood, he is the radically mashed-up product of Greenville, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; Vernon, Texas; Austin, Texas; Washington, DC; and Brooklyn, New York. These locations are felt everywhere in his stories. His sounds are southern rural, big sky lonely, concrete urban, and painfully romantic.

Promoting the President In celebration of Washington's Birthday [link]
Hudson River Museum, Yonkers

We look for our president in paintings, photographs, and sculpture, where we may see him as a warrior, family man, or a man of faith. Washington, the nation's first soldier and president, is the prototype for political promotion, too. For this exhibition, Gilbert Stuart's famous painting, George Washington, on loan to the Museum, as well as the Museum's collection of artifacts and engravings show this leader in images beautiful, respectful, and, sometimes, flamboyant, that were made to frame our vision of him and charge our patriotism and memories.
