At the Lincoln

We closed our final showing of "The Croods" and "Kon Tiki" has yet to go into wider release (we still intend on showing it), and we had hoped to book "42" for Friday but have yet to confirm.

As of press time, we are unclear as to what we will be playing opening Friday, prior to shutting down for a few days while we get ready for our spring play - and hopefully replace our fire escape at the same time.

So, please visit the website ( and be sure to get our e-blast on Wednesday (as noted below). We hope to have a fun film, along with the couple of concerts, and the final MET broadcast of the season this week. Please come and enjoy.

Abbado Conducts Mahler and Beethoven
Claudio Abbado conducts the Lucerne Festival Orchestra in a program featuring Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5. Another highlight of this live-recording is the interpretation of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 together with Abbado's partner in music of many years' standing and one of the world's leading pianist, Maurizio Pollini. Thursday, April 25 at 7 p.m.

The Met Live in HD: Handel's 'Giulio Cesare'
The opera that conquered London in Handel's time comes to the Met in David McVicar's lively production. The world's leading countertenor, David Daniels, sings the title role opposite Natalie Dessay as an irresistibly exotic Cleopatra. Baroque specialist Harry Bicket conducts on Saturday, April 27 at noon. (Please note the earlier than usual start time.)
