Like Bellini and Rossini before him, Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti was a leading composer of the bel canto opera style who found great success in Paris. And it was in Paris that Donizetti composed what would become one of his most enduring works, and one of the most popular comic operas in the repertoire: La Fille du Régiment.

Now tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for this feast of bel canto vocal fireworks -- including the show-stopping aria “Ah! Mes amis,” with its nine high Cs -- at New York's iconic Metropolitan Opera House, with Alessandro Corbelli and Maurizio Muraro trading off as the comic Sergeant Sulpice and mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe as the outlandish Marquise of Berkenfield.

Stoned Soul Picnic is a celebration of the art and soul of the late, great singer-songwriter, and 2013 Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Laura Nyro. Lead vocalist Diane Garisto toured and recorded with Ms. Nyro in the mid-90's as a member of her celebrated Harmony Group. Diane and friends have put together a live show dedicated to the memory of this musical icon. Along with some of New York City's best players and singers, Stoned Soul Picnic features faithful arrangements from all of Nyro's most popular recordings such as Eli and the 13th Confession, New York Tendaberry, Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, and Gonna Take a Miracle. DIANE GARISTO began her performing career at the age of ten singing "Yabba-dabba-doo!" in a Flintstone's Vitamins jingle. From that auspicious beginning she has forged a career that has taken her in the studio and around the world, working with such industry notables as Carly Simon, George Benson, Al Jarreau, Laurie Anderson, and Grace Jones. She toured extensively with Steely Dan and had the good fortune to sing on Paul Simon's award-winning "Graceland" and Billy Joel's evocative "River of Dreams." In a richly varied career she has lent her voice to many commercials and movie soundtracks, and performed on television. But of all of her professional collaborations, none has had greater personal resonance than her connection with Laura Nyro, an idol of Diane's since her girlhood. As a member of Nyro's Harmony Group, Diane toured the US and Japan, participated in her celebrated Christmas Eve concerts at the Bottom Line, and recorded two live albums. Since Nyro's passing, Diane has co-produced and performed in the memorial concert at New York's Beacon Theater, sharing the stage with Patti LaBelle, Rickie Lee Jones, and other luminaries, and at the request of Nyro's estate was the guest soloist when she was inducted into the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame. Diane considers it an honor to be a small part in helping keep Laura Nyro's extraordinary legacy alive.

Enjoy this musical Salute to the First Ladies of Neo-Soul: Sade, Lauryn Hill & Jill Scott featuring Emilie Surtees. For a singer with such powerful pipes, it’s something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a “listener.” Then again, maybe it’s her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Sade, Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them — something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at City Vineyard in New York City.

Dame Helen Mirren (who has won an Oscar, a Tony, a Golden Globe and three Emmy Awards), is the star of Woman in Gold -- and you can hear her live discussing the film at The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center in New York City. Reality became a perfect film plot: A stunning Gustav Klimt portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, a Jewish society woman in Vienna in the early 20th century, was stolen by the Nazis in Austria in 1941. Six decades later, declaring that theft irrelevant, the Austrian government refused to return the painting to the woman’s niece. But the 81-year-old, who’d fled Vienna during the Holocaust, refused to be a victim again and fought back . . . all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Mirren, the star of Woman in Gold, the film based on that story, will discuss the ironic transformation of the portrait of a Jewish woman into an Austrian national treasure, her niece’s long legal battle and the importance of pursuing truth. Scenes from the film will be screened.

Jeffrey Werbock will present a program of instrumental solo improvisations based on traditional Azerbaijani mugham, played on oud -- fretless wood face short neck lute; tar -- fretted skin face long neck lute; and kamancha -- skin face spike fiddle. This concert will be in tribute of the Khojaly massacre with the presence of important officials. Azerbaijani mugham is monophonic modal music, highly microtonal, meter free, densely ornamented, composed of complex melodic lines that are somewhat improvised according to the eastern tradition of theme and variation, and convey a mix of sorrow and joy, exaltation and lament, and an overall sense of both antiquity and otherworldliness. Mr. Werbock has been giving presentations for well over three decades and has performed often at Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, Asia Society, World Music Institute, and presents lecture demonstrations at colleges and universities all over the English speaking world. He has been awarded an honorary degree by the National Music Conservatory of Azerbaijan, in Baku, and was recently sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of Azerbaijan to perform a solo concert. This concert is part of the American Sephardi Music Festival (created and directed by David Serero).

Now, though he may be broke and broken-hearted, this fixer-upper with a can-do attitude is determined to turn it all around in the new pop-rock musical The Other Josh Cohen. Backstage said it’s like “Seinfeld meets Rodgers and Hart,” while The New York Times called it “heartfelt” and “pure fun.” Come along with Josh as he tells (and sings) the tale of his romantic misadventures and family foibles, brought to life by a band of actors playing multiple roles and a score that will have you laughing and singing all the way back home from off-Broadway’s Westside Theatre.

Experience Gatsby in Paris: French Chansons & Jazz Standards From the ’20s to the ’40s, featuring enchanting French singer Chloé Perrier and her new band, the French Heart Jazz Band. This irrepressibly charming show is a mix of French chansons and American jazz standards from the ’20s to the ’40s with a continental flare. Chloé sings an intriguing mix of jazz, chanson, Brazilian and occasionally Romany-tinged numbers in French, as well as in English. The group is known for its reinvention of the old chestnut “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” as a bolero-tinged Twin Peaks theme, an obscure ’20s hot jazz tune that Perrier had found in a history book, and the classic “La Vie en Rose.” Come to City Vineyard in New York City and listen as exes get dissed and relationships gone wrong are dissected and remembered through glasses that aren’t exactly rose-colored.
The critics have crowned the new king -- and queen -- of Broadway! New York Magazine raves, “Genuine joy rolls off the stage in this smart, big-hearted new musical.” The Wall Street Journal cheers, “I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard.” And Variety declares, “It’s a joyous and funny original musical that reminds you what Broadway is all about!” What happens when four stars leave the bright lights of Broadway and take leading roles in a small-town controversy making national headlines?
