National Theatre Live: One Man, Two Guvnors
“…one of the funniest productions in the National Theatre's history…” —The Guardian, UK
Tony and Olivier Award – winner Nicholas Hytner (The History Boys) directs Richard Bean's hilarious reworking of the classic commedia dell'arte play The Servant of Two Masters.

Young Jean Lee: The Shipment
“…brazen theatrical inventiveness.” —The New Yorker
One of the most provocative voices in American contemporary theater, playwright-director Young Jean Lee dares audiences to laugh as they consider their own preconceptions about race and culture.
Metropolitan Opera: Anna Bolena
“Anna Netrebko…is on her way to becoming opera's biggest megastar since Luciano Pavarotti.”
—The New York Times
Anna Netrebko opens the Met season with her portrayal of the ill-fated queen driven insane by her unfaithful king, singing one of opera's greatest mad scenes.
Bolshoi Ballet: Le Corsaire
Choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky after Marius Petipa, the Bolshoi Ballet's new staging of Le Corsaire “fairly bursts with dazzling ingredients” (The Washington Post).
