On PBS This Fall

Hold the phone! PBS is actually going to broadcast something of real cultural interest this month, a program called Jewels (George Balanchine) from the Ballet of the Opéra national de Paris. The Great Performances Web site lists the broadcast date as August 28, 10 pm, but I advise you to check your local listings. Here in Washington, the program will air, on WETA 26, on Thursday, August 31, at 8 pm.

Other programs of interest to Ionarts readers this fall include the Vienna State Opera 50th Anniversary Reopening Concert (September 18, 9 pm), Salzburg Mozart Festival with the Vienna Philharmonic (September 26, 9 pm), and a film called Beverly Sills: Made in the USA (November 23, 9 pm). The dates, it goes without saying, mean nothing in terms of when to set your Tivo.

There is a market out there! 30,000 showed up on the great lawn in Central Park, last Tuesday evening, to see and hear the free Met concert .

Anonymous, thank you for that link. Reading about it makes me so envious. Wow, ballet with live orchestra: imagine that!
