London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of the international smash hit War Horse, and you can catch a live screening of the production at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space. Hailed for its "blast of pure theatrical imagination" by Newsday, this one-of-a-kind theatrical event places the actors on stage with astonishing life-sized horse puppets by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company. These beautiful creations act out the epic story of Joey, a farm horse sold to the cavalry in World War I, and Albert, the boy who trained and bonded with Joey on the farm, who embarks on a dangerous journey to rescue his beloved horse from behind enemy lines. Experience the beauty and drama of the original London production that won five Tony Awards in 2011 and inspired the Academy Award-nominated film by Steven Spielberg. Learn More

A rare New York appearance by Italian guitarist Emanuele Segre in an evening-length work about life, love, and loss, narrated by Symphony Space's very own Isaiah Sheffer with text by Nobel prize-winning Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez and music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
With hands of dazzling skill and solid technique, Emanuele Segre offers a clean sound and is known for his passionate performance style. Joined by narrator Isaiah Sheffer, the two bring to life Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's evening length work for guitar and narrator, Platero Y Yo, (1914; Platero and I) with poetry by one of Spain's most popular poets, Juan Ramón Jiménez, who won the Nobel prize in 1956. Jiménez' work is a entertaining memoir about his travels through Spain with his beloved little donkey, a profound musing on what makes us all human.
