Lincoln Center Festival announces its 2011 program


We're already reported on the dramatic centerpiece of this year's Lincoln Center Festival, which was anounced last year: The Royal Shakespeare Company's six-week residency at the Park Avenue Armony, where it will present five productions from its repertoire. Today Lincoln Center filled in the blanks of its summer offerings. From July 21 through July 24, the festival will host the premiere of Japanese director Amon Miyamoto's account of The Temple of the Golden Pavilion, adapted from a novel byYukio Mishima; and Ireland's Druid Theatre Company, whose DruidSynge anthology dominated the 2006 festival, will return July 24 through July 31 with Garry Hynes's revival of San O'Casey's The Silver Tassle. Also of potential interest to theater fans are two operas: Mozart's The Magic Flute, directed by dramatic space-maker Peter Brook, and Poul Ruders's Selma Jekov, adapted from the film Dancer in the Dark. For additonal details, visit the Lincoln Center Festival website—and buy your tickets well in advance if anything catches your fancy, because they tend to go fast.
