Metropolitan Opera Recital

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24, 2015   |   7 – 8 PM

Followed by a special dance performance at 8:30 PM

Produced in association with SummerStage and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, The Metropolitan Opera’s Summer Recital Series returns to Socrates for its fourth season, featuring four talented young Met singers performing arias and duets from a variety of operas.

Urban Pastoral by Chris Ferris & Dancers, is a dance made in the present tense partnering with the great outdoors, using 10 unique sculptural lights, 10 dancers, and live music. The handheld lights, created by artist Warren Kloner, illuminate, swing, slash, light the dancers, and dot the landscape after sunset, appearing like fireflies in their own pattern of flash and flight path. During the course of this site-specific performance, dancers will seek out others with their pattern before melding into a greater whole.  As the bodies, lights, and sound bounce off the environment, art comes to life in an unpredictable sensual experience in the night air.
