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

- "The ALJO is filling a great void on the New York cultural scene, performing the classics of the Afro-Latin jazz tradition, commissioning new works and playing dances. This band is firmly connected with the essence of Latin jazz. They have great soloists and first-class ensemble playing." --Wynton Marsalis
The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra explores the concept of groove (timba) as expressed throughout Latin America, including Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Argentina and even the rare and exotic Borscht Belt in the Catskills. The program will feature premieres and new works from composers Fernando Otero, Michael Mossman, Emillio Solla, Arturo O'Farrill, Paul Shapiro, Michael Webster and others.
