Peter Martins paid tribute to Petipa’s choreography in creating his adaptation, which blends the majesty of the original with the velocity and energy that remain a hallmark of the Company.

Stravinsky’s utterly original, exotic Firebird glitters and pulses to fantastic effect — from primitive to luminous, and from the lustrous dance of the Firebird to the Finale, a spectacular, shimmering climax of bold orchestral colors. Matthias Pintscher describes his mar’eh (a Hebrew word that can mean “a vision”) as shaped “in a very song-like fashion … high, fast, filigree.”

Dangerous Beauty: Medusa in Classical Art

Price

When

7:00pm

Kiki Karoglou, Associate Curator in the Department of Greek and Roman Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will present the exhibit she curated, Dangerous Beauty: Medusa in Classical Art. The exhibit, originally on view at The Met until January 6th, has been extended until Feb. 24, 2019. Beginning in the fifth century B.C., Medusa – the serpentine-haired Gorgon whose gaze turned men to stone – became increasingly anthropomorphic and feminine, undergoing a visual transformation from grotesque to beautiful. A similar shift in representations of other mythical female half-human beings, such as sphinxes, sirens, and the sea monster Scylla – took place at the same time. Featuring sixty artworks, primarily from The Met collection, this exhibition explores for the first time how the beautification of these terrifying figures manifested the idealizing humanism of Classical Greek art, and traces their enduring appeal in both Roman and later Western art. The Winter 2018 issue of the Met Bulletin was devoted entirely to this exhibit. A reception with Kiki Karoglou will follow the program. The event is free, however, interested parties must reserve tickets in advance.
