  • Metropolitan Opera NYC
    Founded smack-dab in the middle of Chester A. Arthur's presidency, The Metropolitan Opera has been a vibrant cultural center for more than 130 years. The Met's accomplished conductors, performers, and composers form a who's who of opera?Arturo Toscanini and Gustav Mahler are among them?and they've premiered some of history's most remarkable works, including those by Wagner and Puccini. The current music director, James Levine, has steered the ship since 1976, witnessing not only the birth of groundbreaking works by Philip Glass and Tobias Picker, but also the creation of new opera fans across the country. In 1977, a televised performance of La Boh?me reached more than four million people, leading to regular broadcasts and HD screenings in movie theaters. Since 1966, the Met's performers have sent their voices soaring in one of the world's most stunning opera houses, designed by architect Wallace K. Harrison. Past the lobby's two towering Marc Chagall paintings, twinkling Viennese chandeliers light the way to nearly 4,000 seats. There, the auditorium's timeless design blends seamlessly with technology: on each seat back, a small screen displays simultaneous translation through the company's unique Met Titles system, granting audiences the chance to follow the libretto in English, Spanish, or German.

  • Arthur Murray Dance Studio Westchester
    Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

One of Gilbert and Sullivan's first full-length operettas, The Sorcerer follows the tale of two betrothed lovers, Alexis and Aline, who engage the help of a sorcerer in order to make others feel as infatuated as they do. Chaos ensues when characters begin to fall in love with the wrong persons while hitting the right notes.
