Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. In fact, many of the objects that have been associated with the heartland were manufactured and used in New York City by artists and artisans who, in the tradition of self-taught artists around the world, learned their skills by joining family businesses, apprenticing to masters, or by teaching themselves the expertise needed to produce those pieces that we now consider among the core expressions of American folk art. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. The exhibition draws on the collections of a number of New York City museums, including the American Folk Art Museum, The New-York Historical Society, and historical societies and museums in all five boroughs, as well as private collections. Curator: Elizabeth V. Warren

When mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča and tenor Roberto Alagna joined forces for a new production of Carmen at the Met, the results were electrifying. Now this star duo reunites for another sensual French opera when they open the season in the title roles of Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson et Dalila. Darko Tresnjak, who won a Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical in 2014 for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, makes his Met debut directing a vivid, seductive staging, featuring a monumental setting for the last-act Temple of Dagon, where the hero crushes his Philistine enemies. Sir Mark Elder conducts the first new Met production of the work in 20 years.

What to Expect •Families will learn about the legendary trumpeter Miles Davis in this hour-long interactive performance. •Recommended for ages 5–12, but children and adults of all ages are welcome. Our Jazz for Young People series continues with an hour-long narrated concert that will teach you all about Miles Davis. With an engaging script, live musical performances, and crowd participation, your family will be excited to learn about Davis’ trials and triumphs and hear examples of what made his music so special. Trumpet master Sean Jones (a former Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra member) serves as host and bandleader, bringing both the story and the music to life in a most impressive manner. Far from a typical career retrospective, this Family Concert shows you not only what Davis accomplished, but also how he did it. Your kids will discover how Davis listened with open ears, found inspiration in the genius of others, and brought many influences into his own individual and evolving vision. Our Family Concerts are always a good time, and this fun afternoon program will entertain and inspire your family whether you’re already jazz lovers or perhaps simply wondering, “Who is Miles Davis?”

CMS traverses the turbulent historical landscape of Russia through its vastly expressive music. From the glorious musical outpourings of the age of the tsars and the Russian Empire to the audaciously creative period between the wars, and into and beyond the Soviet era, Russian music has told the story of its country and people like no other. Each program concludes with one of Russia’s incomparable chamber music blockbusters, works of symphonic scale and excitement.
