Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s opera The Passenger was written in the 1960s but never produced until it was seen at the Bregenz Festival in Austria in 2010. Since then, it has been acclaimed as one of the great masterpieces of the 20th century. The music has been lauded at Houston Grand Opera and the Lincoln Center Festival in New York. It tells the story of a passenger on an ocean liner with her husband, who is en route to a new diplomatic post in South America. She believes one of the other passengers may have been a prisoner in Auschwitz, where she had served as an SS overseer. Her husband knows nothing of her past, and she finds herself in a harrowing, perilous situation. Florida Grand Opera will present the same physical production that was seen in Bregenz, with its two-tiered design allowing the action to shift seamlessly between the ocean liner and the Auschwitz concentration camp. This South Florida premiere will be one of the most important musical events of the year. Times Read: 0

Finland’s finest return to NWS for classical music’s best dances. Debussy incorporates children’s folk tunes to usher in a shimmering spring in this pastoral tone poem. In one of the finest designs for cello, Henri Dutilleux’s sonorous and enigmatic World demands expert precision and grace throughout its five movements—each based on a poem by Baudelaire. Shortly after fleeing a war-ravaged Europe for America, Rachmaninoff composed his expansive Symphonic Dances. Sprinkling in influences from his new home, he included a nostalgic solo for saxophone and a lurching waltz before its ominous finale. This tour de force would be Rachmaninoff’s final composition, himself claiming “it must have been my last spark.” Times Read: 0

On March 16, Jerry Lewis, underloved genius of modern cinema (Manohla Dargis, NY Times), turned 90. The Gables Cinema joins the late-blooming ranks of his stateside admirers with a screening of the original Nutty Professor, the film most of Lewis’ detractors can’t help but love. What’s it all about? In the words of Time Out London: “Surreal off-the-wall masterpiece with Lewis again playing 7-stone cretin, this time a campus chemistry professor who woos his dream girl by inventing a magic potion that turns him (on and off) into a he-man of the Dean Martin school (hip, brylcreemed, offensive). The Technicolor blazes and swirls with magic energy, while the Jekyll-and Hyde plot hustles its way through a minefield of gags, and sneers eloquently at the joys of the New America (a popular off-limits bar called The Purple Pit). Parody and nostalgia: pure alchemy.” MOMA curator Dave Kehr calls Nutty Professor, “Jerry Lewis’ Persona, and in some ways a more honest film,” adding that it “has to stand as one of the most intensive investigations of self ever put on film, a technically impeccable work of inspired megalomania.” Times Read: 0
