This year's lineup for Lincoln Center Festival certainly doesn't disappoint: there's work from Japan, England, Canada, France and here at home. No other local institution has shown such a long-term dedication to Japanese theatrical traditions such as Kabuki and Noh, and that spirit continues with a bonanza of Noh dramas being presented by Kanze Noh Theatre—six nights of varied programming. Also visiting from Tokyo is Takarazuka Chicago, a flashy and splashy all-female take on the classic Broadway musical. For more traditional fare, there's an English staging of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. For Bardophiles and ballet lovers, there's National Ballet of Canada's interpreation of The Winter's Tale. And if you simply want a music concert, there's much to tickle your ears: a one-act opera by Huang Ro and three concerts of work by pioneering composer Steve Reich. That's just a sampling of all the fabulous live art and summer concerts to get excited for.
