Presenting...The Cricket in Times Square! When little country cricket Chester mistakenly travels by picnic basket to New York City, his music is transformed forever. Chester's pitch-perfect chirps accompany classical sounds to make him a Times Square sensation in this world premiere retelling of George Selden's Newbery Honor book, The Cricket in Times Square, composed and adapted by jazz innovator and genre-bending modern classical composer Chris Brubeck. Join the NSO, Chester Cricket as performed by a solo violin, and Chester's buddies--Mario, Tucker Mouse, and Harry Cat--portrayed by actors, for a funny, sweet, and magically musical story of a little cricket finding his voice in the big city. Age 5 and up. Come early for the Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo." An hour before each NSO Family Concert, young concertgoers can get up close and hands-on with the instruments they'll see played on the stage--from violins, trumpets, and oboes to trombones and percussion--in the Kennedy Center Atrium. A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO. Stay after the 3 p.m. concerts for a Kids' Chat. Following the 3 p.m. concert, young audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the concert artists.
One of the world's foremost dance companies, New York City Ballet performs a mixed repertory program accompanied by the New York City Ballet Orchestra. The program features George Balanchine's choreography in "Vienna Waltzes", an homage to an age of imperial grandeur, alongside Christopher Wheeldon's salute to Richard Rodgers' "Carousel" and Jerome Robbins' standout "Glass Pieces" -- set to the music of minimalist composer Philip Glass. George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein shaped the history of 20th-century dance when they co-founded the company, and under the direction of Peter Martins, New York City Ballet remains dedicated to the preservation of Balanchine's ideals. Renowned for its linear purity, speed and musicality, the company's unparalleled repertory reflects a perfect unity of musical inspirations and celebrated history.
