From the townships of South Africa, Isango Ensemble bursts onto the stage in an inspired reimagining of Mozart's masterpiece opera THE MAGIC FLUTE: Impempe yomlingo. Sung in English by an ensemble of more than two dozen vibrant voices, classic arias are enlivened with exhilarating orchestrations of merry marimbas and powerful percussion. A brilliant fusion of fairy tale and African myth, the show shines especially bright when the majestic Pauline Malefane performs her acclaimed interpretation of the Queen of the Night. Winner of an Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival (Young Vic, London) and a Globes de Cristal for Best Opera (Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris), this fresh, fearless and fantastical production, co-produced by Eric Abraham and the Young Vic, brims with dazzling drama, crisp comedy and the sublime joy of finding true love.

American Museum of Natural History Presents: Frontiers Lecture: The Limits of Science and the Search for Meaning with Marcelo Gleiser and Rebecca GoldsteinPresented by American Museum of Natural History
Can science and philosophy provide answers to our questions about where we came from and what our place is in the universe? Renowned theoretical physicist Marcelo Gleiser acclaimed philosopher and novelist Rebecca Goldstein discuss the limits of knowledge and how much we can actually know of the world, arguing that both science and philosophy have fundamental limits and our knowledge of the world is – and always will be – necessarily incomplete. In a broad- ranging intellectual history of our search for knowledge and meaning, Gleiser and Goldstein offer a unique view of what it means to be human in a universe filled with mystery.
