Mozart's lyrical 2nd Piano Quartet and Richard Strauss' impassioned and rarely played work, written when he was just nineteen years old.

Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait
Friday, March 17th, 7 PM - 8:30 PM
The Met, The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium

Music by Jenny Scheinman
Film by Finn Taylor
All footage shot by H. Lee Waters between 1936 and 1942

New York Premiere

Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait is a kind of time machine that will transport you into the lives of ordinary people living in the South during the Great Depression. Based on the work of nearly forgotten photographer H. Lee Waters, Kannapolis weaves some of the hundreds of short, silent films he shot of daily life in small towns across Virginia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas (including Kannapolis, NC); into a compelling tapestry of a moment in time. Composer/singer/violinist Jenny Scheinman and filmmaker Finn Taylor have shaped Waters's shorts into a truly "moving" portrait. The original films' subjects got to see themselves on the silver screen when Waters presented his short films at the local movie house. Today's audiences will experience a shivery echo of that long-ago thrill.

Tickets: $40. For more information or advance purchase visit http://www.metmuseum.org/tickets or call 212-570-3750.

Tan Dun: Terracotta Symphony and Triple Concerto: Hero
Saturday, April 1st, 2 PM - 3:30 PM
The Met, The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium

World Premiere Featuring The Juilliard Orchestra, conducted by Tan Dun

The exhibition Age of Empires: Chinese Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties (221 B.C.–A.D. 220), on view April 3–July 16, 2017, brings to The Met the terracotta warrior sculptures that were buried with the Emperor Qin Shi Huang to protect him in the afterlife. To celebrate this extraordinary exhibition, The Met commissioned a new work from composer Tan Dun—Terracotta Symphony, based on music from his opera, The First Emperor, featuring terracotta drums sourced specifically for this piece. Also on the program is Hero Concerto for violin and orchestra, with music drawn from Tan Dun’s film score for Zhang Yimou's Hero.

Tickets: $65-$85. For more information or advance purchase visit http://www.metmuseum.org/tickets or call 212-570-3750.

Vivaldi: Red Priest
Thursday, April 27th, 7 PM - 8:30 PM
The Met, The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium

When contemporaries nicknamed Antonio Vivaldi the Red Priest in the early 18th century, they had no idea the moniker would come in so handy 400 years later. This go-for-Baroque bunch has clearly earned the right to use the name, thanks to wildly original yet historically informed performances of Vivaldi and his peers, in concerts and recordings that have enthralled audiences and captivated critics all over the world. Think you've heard The Four Seasons enough for a lifetime? Think again!

Tickets: $50. For more information or advance purchase visit http://www.metmuseum.org/tickets or call 212-570-3750.
