Perhaps best known for his work on the stage for such hits as the Tony-winning “Spring Awakening,” as well as the current TV series “Smash,” Michael Mayer is now behind the innovative (and modernized) new production of Verdi’s “Rigoletto” at the Met Opera.
Christina Ha presents the latest arts news at the Rubin Museum of Art where we view current exhibitions. Plus, a look at “The Other Place,” a new thriller by Manhattan Theater Company; Buglisi Dance Theatre’s 20th anniversary show at The Joyce; and more.
First, an interview with Michael Mayer, director of “Rigoletto” at The Met Opera. Then, we’ll visit with Lady Fiona Carnarvon of Highclere Castle, the estate that set the stage for “Downton Abbey.”
