1 Join friends and family at the Goddard Center for a special presentation in high definition of the Bolshoi Ballet’s “Romeo & Juliet” at 6 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets are first-come, first-serve and may be purchased at the door prior to the performance.
For the 8th consecutive year, the 2017-18 Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema season presents the greatest classics restaged by today’s most celebrated choreographers for a cinema-exclusive experience featuring some of the best dancers in the world: In Verona, Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love while their respective families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are caught in a bitter rivalry ending in heartwrenching tragedy. Alexei Ratmansky stages the company’s premiere of his production with dramatic urgency and a fresh retelling of Shakespeare’s beloved classic. His brilliant adaptation, set to Prokofiev’s romantic score, reignites the story of literature’s most celebrated star-crossed lovers. This 2018 production stars Ekaterina Krysanova as Juliet, Vladislav Lantratov as Romeo, Igor Tsvirko as Mercutio, Vitaly Biktimirov as Tybalt, and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet.

5  End the week on a high note, literally, when the Goddard Center presents Live in HD from The Metropolitan Opera, Giacomo Puccini’s “Tosca” at 11:55 am.  Saturday. The doors will open one hour prior. A light meal, included in the cost of admission, will be served prior to the performance.
Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca’s rather grungy subject matter, the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles. But these same aspects have made Tosca one of a handful of iconic works that seem to represent opera in the public imagination.
