London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of King Lear, and you can catch a live screening of the show at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Symphony Space. Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) returns to the National Theatre to direct Simon Russell Beale (Timon of Athens) in the title role of Shakespeare's epic tragedy. Regarded as among Shakespeare's greatest plays, King Lear depicts an aging monarch's descent into madness as his family and country are torn apart by the ambition and jealousy of his children. This sweeping legend depicts the devastating consequences of pride, as King Lear's hubris and his daughters' ambitions destroy not just their own family, but an entire nation as well. Learn More

Alberto Ginastera’s searing, daring, beautiful, and rarely heard Cantata Para America Magica for soprano and percussion orchestra will be performed by soprano Lucy Shelton with the Talujon Percussion Group, pianist Ursula Oppens, and performers from the Brooklyn, Queens, and Purchase College Conservatories of Music. In addition, the evening will feature Ginastera's Guitar Sonata, Op. 47, performed by David Leisner, and George Crumb's Voice of the Whale, and Night Music I, an exquisite setting of the poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca.
