The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie / Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

"Luis Buñuel's 1972 comic masterpiece, about three well-to-do couples who try and fail to have a meal together, is perhaps the most perfectly achieved and executed of all his late French films. The film proceeds by diverse interruptions, digressions, and interpolations (including dreams and tales within tales) that, interestingly enough, identify the characters, their class, and their seeming indestructibility with narrative itself. One of the things that makes this film as charming as it is, despite its radicalism, and helped Buñuel win his only Oscar is the perfect cast, many of whom bring along nearly mythic associations acquired in previous French films. Frightening, funny, profound, and mysterious" (Jonathan Rosenbaum).

The Phantom of Liberty / Le fantôme de la liberté - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's absurdist parables, paradoxes, and comic inversions come fast and furious in The Phantom of Liberty: the tableau vivant of Goya's revolutionary painting The Third of May 1808, which proclaimed a modern age of resistance and terror; the little girl who hides in plain sight; the society dinner table as public toilet; the pornographic postcards of famous European monuments. In this runic and anarchical fever dream, unlike any since Buñuel's own surrealist 1930 masterpiece L'Age d'or, the film's all-star cast of Monica Vitti, Michel Piccoli, Jean-Claude Brialy, and company find themselves prisoners of their own making.

That Obscure Object of Desire / Cet obscur objet du désir - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

Buñuel's last film goes up in flames, literally, in a destructive (or procreative?) act of terrorism, the climax of rich widower Fernando Rey's exquisitely tortured pursuit of the devilishly elusive "Concha" (played, alternately, by Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina).

National Symphony Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall
May 19, 2019 - New York

Liszt vividly depicts episodes from Dante's Inferno and Purgatory, while Rossini paints a portrait of a mother's grief.

A masterpiece of 19th-century sacred music, Rossini's setting of the Stabat Mater, the Virgin Mary's lament at the cross of Jesus, moves with superb vocal writing, including the hair-raising "Inflammatus" for soprano and chorus, the tenor's showpiece "Cujus animam," and more.

Nikolett Pankovits Sextet & the River Voices - Carnegie Hall
May 20, 2019 - New York

Jazz singer Nikolett Pankovits and a brilliant cast of vocalists & instrumentalists re-imagine the haunting melodies of Hungarian folk music with a luscious array of jazz and Latin American rhythms. The project builds upon the field research of legendary Hungarian composers such as Bela Bartok and Zoltan Kodaly, confounding stylistic expectations and melding disparate musical worlds. For Pankovits, the New York scene provided an ideal forum for melding the music of her youth with her love of jazz and kindred musical currents. Working closely with longtime collaborator Juancho Herrera, a New York string wizard and arranger from Colombia, she’s designed the Zankel Hall concert as a barrier-breaking event for both Hungarian music lovers and music fans drawn to creatively charged cross-cultural collaborations. The concert grew out of Pankovits’ hit production featuring Latin jazz-inflected arrangements of traditional Hungarian songs Sad But True, which she performed to sold-out audiences in New York at venues such as the Blue Note, Joe’s Pub, the Bitter End, Club Bonafide, Rockwood Music Hall, and Lincoln Center.

Diary of a Chambermaid / Le journal d'une femme de chambre - MoMA
May 21, 2019 - New York

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather: In Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's sadomasochistic updating of Octave Mirbeau's Dreyfusard novel of 1900, a perfectly cast Jeanne Moreau is Celestine, the refined Parisian chambermaid who slowly lays bare the toxic underbelly of a fading aristocratic family in the provinces between the wars, humoring the lady of the manor in her cold ministrations over staff and house; the lady's dirty old father in his predations of animal and maidservant; and the estate's gardener-coachman in his fascist enthusiasms for God, country, and (she grimly suspects) a little girl's innocence.

Belle de jour - MoMA
May 21, 2019 - New York

In Belle de jour, Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's mystery box of dreams within flashbacks within fantasies, Catherine Deneuve embodies the Surrealist ideal of femininity as at once virginal and vampirical—bored housewife by night, whore by day—martyring herself to male desire, to painful guilty pleasures of the flesh, to achieve her own desire. "[S]omehow, letting the color in—and this is Buñuel's first color film—has changed the emotional quality of his obsessions in a completely unpredictable way…. The movie ends with a dark ambiguity to what has gone on before, but every detail has been carefully thought out that seeing it again is like seeing it in another key" (Renata Adler).

May 22, 2019 - New York

Yngwie Malmsteen was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on June 30, 1963. The youngest child in a household that included his mother Rigmor, sister Ann Louise, and brother Bjorn, Yngwie originally had no interest in music. However, on September 18, 1970, Yngwie saw a TV special on the death of guitar iconoclast Jimi Hendrix. Seven-year-old Yngwie watched with awe as Hendrix blasted the audience with torrents of feedback and sacrificed his guitar in flames. The day Jimi Hendrix died, the guitar-playing Yngwie was born. In Time Magazine, Yngwie found himself included as one of the "10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players." Near the end of the year, Yngwie and his management company decided to begin releasing rare archival concert footage. The first was Yngwie in Korea, shot during his 2001 War to End All Wars Tour, in Seoul, South Korea. And that, asserts Yngwie, is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come! Doors: 6:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm. Sony Hall is a first come, first seated venue. Arrive early for the best seats!

In this runic and anarchical fever dream, unlike any since Buñuel's own surrealist 1930 masterpiece L'Age d'or, the film's all-star cast of Monica Vitti, Michel Piccoli, Jean-Claude Brialy, and company find themselves prisoners of their own making.

Valmont - MoMA
May 24, 2019 - New York

Though Dangerous Liaisons fared better at the box office and during awards season, Valmont was the less misanthropic—and in some ways more modern—of the two rival adaptations of Choderlos de Laclos's scandalous 18th-century epistolary novel. Miloš Forman and Jean-Claude Carrière found the pathos that underlay the novel's libertine decadence, its cruel twists of sexual intrigue and false moral posturing, and captured what André Malraux famously described as Laclos's "eroticization of the human will."

Cyrano de Bergerac - MoMA

Valmont USA/France. Directed by Miloš Forman, 1989, 137 mins > May 24 - 1:30pm, May 25 - 1:30pm

Danton - MoMA
May 24, 2019 - New York

Andrzej Wajda and Jean-Claude Carrière's daring, and dashing, history of the Reign of Terror in revolutionary France pits Robespierre, the ruthless Jacobin, and Danton, the self-appointed populist, in an ideological clash between two forms of despotism: tyranny of the one, and of the many. The film's contemporary relevance in 1983 did not go unnoticed, provoking cries of heresy among the embattled socialist left in France, and cries of heroic resistance within Poland's Solidarity movement during martial law.

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie / Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie - MoMA
May 25, 2019 - New York

"Luis Buñuel's 1972 comic masterpiece, about three well-to-do couples who try and fail to have a meal together, is perhaps the most perfectly achieved and executed of all his late French films. The film proceeds by diverse interruptions, digressions, and interpolations (including dreams and tales within tales) that, interestingly enough, identify the characters, their class, and their seeming indestructibility with narrative itself. One of the things that makes this film as charming as it is, despite its radicalism, and helped Buñuel win his only Oscar is the perfect cast, many of whom bring along nearly mythic associations acquired in previous French films. Frightening, funny, profound, and mysterious" (Jonathan Rosenbaum).

Mean Girls - August-Wilson Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

Mean Girl Broadway Musical If you didn’t see Mean Girl back in the 2000s, then you probably didn’t have that great of a childhood. Most people might call it a chick flick, but in our opinion, it is one of the greatest teen movies of our generation. The people were in awe over our little mathematician. Oh, and it’s not just our opinion, the movie was showered with more awards then we can count. But, the story just keeps getting better. After her incredible movie, Tina Fey didn’t just stop there. She has far greater and extravagant plans for the Mean Girls Franchise. You'd like to know if Tina Fey can write a musical. The oh-so-not-surprising answer is... yes! – Peter Marks, The Washington Post We sometimes feel that our childhood is coming to life with musicals. First, it was Bring it On, then Heathers with several others in development. But, the musical for Mean Girls is already here. The Mean Girls Musical is a masterpiece from the great Fey. It’s based on her book and the movie of the same name. The musical was under construction since 2013. But, it was a moment of joy for every fan when it was announced on “Mean Girls Day” that their favorite movie was comi... (read more)

Frozen - Broadway Musical - St. James Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

The spectacular Disney film that captivated audiences around the world has finally made it to Broadway! Following the success of the 2013 animated movie, Frozen the Musical expands on the story of two sisters, giving more time to the characters we’ve come to love. With a book by Jennifer Lee, and music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the show has kept many members of the creative team from the film, ensuring everything on stage is faithful to the original story. Instead of being a direct copy of the film, what Frozen the Musical does is transform these animated characters into something real and tangible. It really takes the time to dig deep into the characters’ motivations, allowing their relationships to develop further. Delving deeper into Elsa and Anna’s past, the extra time given to the young sisters makes their love for each other clear from the start. Young Elsa, portrayed by Brooklyn Nelson and Ayla Schwartz, is the perfect tragic heroine. Her reaction to hurting her sister, and her fear of hurting anyone else, tugs at the heartstrings of every audience member. Both actors convey the role of big sister brilliantly, tapping into the respons... (read more)
