An ensemble of performers stand in front of an extravagant backdrop

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1926. Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi. Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano.

Six photos of intricate braided hair designs

Highlighting thirty years of artmaking dedicated to the Black experience in America, Sonya Clark: We Are Each Other is the first comprehensive survey of the communal art-making projects that form the heart of the artist’s pioneering creative practice. Accompanied by a selection of Clark’s photographs, prints, and sculpture, the exhibition will feature five of Clark’s large-scale, collaborative projects, including her barrier-breaking The Hair Craft Project (2014) and the ongoing performance, Unraveling.

Working with a wide range of emotionally resonant materials and everyday objects—from cotton cloth and human hair to school desks and bricks— Clark encourages audiences to confront through material transformation the country’s historical imbalances and racial injustices. At the same time, Clark celebrates the complexities of the Black cultural experience. The uses of traditional craft materials, her applied knowledge of global craft techniques, and the communal collaborations that are integral to the integrity of Clark's art are among the many ways Clark represents and honors the legacies of the African diaspora in Black life.

A silhouette of a man walking with leaves blowing into the wind and the text: uncle vanya

Sonya (Alison Pill) and her uncle Vanya (Steve Carell) have devoted their lives to managing the family farm in isolation, but when her celebrated, ailing father (Alfred Molina) and his charismatic wife (Anika Noni Rose) move in, their lives are upended. In the heat of the summer, the wrong people fall in love, desires and resentments erupt, and the family is forced to reckon with the ghosts of their unlived lives.

Director Lila Neugebauer and playwright Heidi Schreck collaborate on the premiere of this Lincoln Center Theater production of UNCLE VANYA, which pairs Chekhov's enduring masterpiece with one of America's most celebrated contemporary playwrights in a strikingly immediate new translation.

Climate change is everyone’s crisis, but climate change knowledge and narratives remain elite, male dominated. Excluding marginalized groups from earth sciences is increasing their exposure to adverse climate impacts, while bottom-up engagement of frontline communities can steer a more just energy transition. This talk will discuss the diversity problem in two countries: the United States, history’s biggest cumulative polluter, and India, now the world’s third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases. It will propose ways to shape a more democratic and informed pathway to climate action. The speaker honors the legacy of Columbia University alum and India’s civil rights icon, Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar (1891–1956), whose birth anniversary is celebrated on this day.

A sensory, inclusive dance-theatre performance made especially for and with neurodiverse young people aged 7 and up. It tells the story of a tiger’s visit to a rigid family home where he turns their world upside down. It’s chaotic and brilliantly fun, with a focus on sensory engagement. Playfulness within the work creates space for a two-way response between the audience and performers, with its adaptable approach allowing the individuality of each young person to be celebrated.

Playful Tiger is designed for a small number of audience members and their families to be able to accommodate a range of sensory needs and the most engagement.
