What's doing at Brooklyn Center

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College has two big performances to look forward to.

First on March 13, the acclaimed Odessa Philharmonic makes its Brooklyn Center debut as part of its first U.S. tour in ten years, with a program including Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 in B minor (“Unfinished”), Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in A major, and Saint Sans’ Cello Concerto featuring soloist William DeRosa.

That's at 8 pm, with tickets $35 and $22.

The next day, on March 14, bring the family to the world premiere of David Gonzalez’s “Sleeping Beauty,” at 2 pm.

Commissioned by Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts, this new interpretation of the classic fairy tale combines Gonzalez’s consummate storytelling with live and electronic music, dance, image projections and exquisite lighting to create a magical multimedia world in which a beautiful princess is awakened by true love’s kiss.

The inspiration for the piece came from two unlikely sources: Johann Sebastian Bach and Dr. Seuss.

Both shows are held in the Walt Whitman Theatre at Brooklyn College, 2900 Campus Road.
