Central Park

Well, we might only thaw out by May, but probably won’t see the same white crystals this year. Some events here are inspired by gloomy Russians in keeping with the snowy theme, others include hot shows with musicians we like, so, page views also, they are good shit to begin with, and to top it off, two huge flea markets of all art that is modern to fit in a warehouse.

    William Kentridge directs “The Nose”, a Shotakovich opera based on a story by a Ivan Gogol. The opening is on March 5th at the Metropolitan Opera. I watched his previous film series (9 Drawings for Projection) in the summer rain in Central Park. His work to me has the emotional punch between a Chopin nocturne and hearing a soprano opera singer practice notes while walking back home after a first date that ended with a sensual kiss. The Met setting is more austere but the sound and the visuals will take you away from all of the “regular” surroundings. 03/05/10 – ongoing, $ vary but there’s standing room at the Metropolitan Opera.
