McCarter Theatre Plans Packed Roster of Events

ECLECTIC SEASON: Ailey II is among the dance, music, and theater attractions at McCarter Theatre this coming season.

Special Programming Director William W. Lockwood has  announced the lineup for the 2019-2020 Dance, Music, and Signature Series at McCarter Theatre Center. Each series will feature a mix of acclaimed musicians, dance companies, and performing artists, including several returning favorites and McCarter debuts.

“This year’s schedule contains some of my very favorite artists, including some I’ve been trying to book for a long time,” said Lockwood. “McCarter is unique in its reputation as a home for artists from around the world. No other institution in the country presents a full-time Theater Series alongside a full schedule of presented events quite like McCarter does, and no other does it better.”

Appearances by Ailey II, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Dorrance Dance, and the National Ballet Theatre of Odessa are on the dance schedule. The Music Series includes violinist Christian Tetzlaff; pianists Lars Vogt, Yuja Wang, and Igor Levit; the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine; Peter Phillips conducting The Tallis Scholars in a special holiday program; and Harry Bicket conducting Handel’s opera Rodelinda with an all-star cast of vocalists.

The Signature Series includes Yamato Drummers of Japan, Jake Shimabukuro, The Hit Men, Cirque Éloize, and David Sedaris, among others.

Subscription packages for the 2019-2020 Dance, Music, and Signature Series are available now by calling (609) 258-2787, visiting mccarter.org, or visiting the McCarter Ticket Office, located at 91 University Place.
