May Marathons on ALL ARTS

Thursday, April 30, 2020 | SHARE

Weekly marathons throughout the month celebrating Broadway, Country and Folk Music, Classical Music, New York Institutions, Opera and Dance

 

(NEW YORK – May 1, 2020) This May, ALL ARTS is excited to present a series of marathons for fans of theater, country and folk music, classical music, opera, contemporary dance and ballet, as well as a special celebration of New York arts and cultural institutions that have been forced to close due to COVID-19.

Notes Diane Masciale, Co-Executive in Charge of ALL ARTS, “The past weeks have really made the team at ALL ARTS focus on what value we can bring the community during this time of social distancing. It is incredibly important for us to continue to celebrate the work of artists across all genres. With New York arts and cultural organizations having to close their doors, we hope our programming, especially these May marathons, can help fill this void for audiences.”

Each Saturday will host a different marathon starting at 10 a.m. The country and folk music marathon (May 2) will conclude with a premiere of Kacey Musgraves’ Austin City Limits concert, and highlights of the classical music (May 9), opera (May 23) and dance (May 30) marathons include Itzhak Perlman Conducts the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Simone Dinnerstein at National Sawdust, Stravinsky’s Persephone at the Teatro Real, Maria Callas, Balanchine’s Jewels and The Bessie Awards. In addition, 14 organizations will be celebrated in the New York institutions (May 16) marathon, including MoMA, The Frick Collection, Harlem Stage, The Jewish Museum and Cooper Hewitt. Broadway productions will air each Sunday at 8 p.m., including full presentations of 42nd Street and Much Ado About Nothing featuring Danielle Brooks.
