Live From Lincoln Center

Show Summary

Live From Lincoln Center Webcast streams productions from the leading organizations devoted to the arts. Julliard, the School of American Ballet and the New York City Opera are among the institutions partnered with the Lincoln Center to present their content to a wider audience on the world-wide web. By doing so they are able to bring their rich artistic traditions to the homes of Americans throughout the nation. Families who might not otherwise be able to immerse themselves in the drama and wonder of symphony, ballet and jazz have the opportunity to not only watch performances but learn about behind the scenes production involved in staging performances. Webcasts vary from demonstrations of weapons training for New York City Ballet's Romeo and Juliet, to discussions on jazz with the renowned Wynton Marsalis. Past telecasts also include Rodger's and Hammerstein's South Pacific. These webcasts and video vignettes are found on the Lincoln Center for the Performing Art's website.

Season 1 : Episode 32

  • Movie and show songs, performed by Audra McDonald, backed by the New York Philharmonic.

    Not for everybody, but if you like soloists singing show themes with orchestral accompaniment, it was fine. Audra McDonald can sing well. She's no Jessye Norman and she's no stand-up comedian, but she did a tolerable job with what she had. This performance is targeted to the over-50 set, or to fanciers of Broadway music or music of the movies. Reasonably young, attractive and African-American, Audra McDonald may not fit the profile of a fading and overweight luminary of a previous decade, struggling through unfamiliar music and trying to recapture past glory on stage. She was better than that. So, if you like the genre and the idea of the New York Philharmonic doing backup, there you go.moreless
