The opera MARIA STUARDA, by Gaetano Donizetti, is a searingly dramatic setting of Friedrick Schiller’s play about Mary, Queen of Scots, and her political and personal rivalry with Queen Elizabeth I of England. Sir David McVicar’s stunning production turns on the dramatic confrontation between the doomed Mary – portrayed by soprano Sondra Radvanonsky – and her arch nemesis, Queen Elizabeth – portrayed by soprano Elza van den Heever. “A royal treat… visually striking.” THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Venue: The Metropolitan Opera, 30 Lincoln Plaza
Special Offer: 25% discount on tickets for all performances excluding 20 February matinee; excludes tickets in the Family Circle, Balcony Boxes and standing room sections
This performance of TWELFTH NIGHT, presented by Filter Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company, is a radically-cut, fast-paced, and extremely accessible version of Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy where classical verse meets riotous gig. Performed by actors in everyday clothes, the experience is more akin to a rock concert than classical theater, creating an exhilarating live chemistry between actor and audience. “Fresh, fast and very funny. Chaotic, creative and zinging with vibrant irreverence.” THE LONDON TIMES
Dates: 16 to 20 February 2016 (4 performances only!)
Venue: NYU Skirball Center, 566 LaGuardia Place
Special Offer: 20% discount on all tickets
