Buglisi Dance Theatre and Lincoln Center, in partnership with Dance/NYC and Nel Shelby Productions, honor the 20th year since the events of 9/11 with a livestreamed performance of the Table of Silence Project 9/11, an annual ritual for peace conceived and choreographed in 2011 by Jacqulyn Buglisi, Artistic Director of Buglisi Dance Theatre. Collaborators for this year’s reimagined program include composer/music director Daniel Bernard Roumain, spoken-word poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Buglisi Dance Theatre co-founder/principal dancer Terese Capucilli, and video producer Nel Shelby. Tune in to this performance at Revson Fountain—streamed live from Lincoln Center—starting at 8:00 am ET and available on-demand afterward.
In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the Met presents Verdi’s Requiem, with Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting the extraordinary Met Orchestra and Chorus as well as a quartet of star soloists: soprano Ailyn Pérez, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, tenor Matthew Polenzani, and bass-baritone Eric Owens. The concert will be transmitted live as part of Great Performances on PBS, with ballet star Misty Copeland hosting the program from nearby the site of the 9/11 Museum. Members of the public are also invited to listen to a live audio broadcast of the performance in Lincoln Center Plaza, with English text projected on the façade of the Met.
