I’ve got a great serving of stories for you this week, and many of them carry on a theme: innovation. Philadelphia Ballet spreads its wings with a production of Swan Lake that has new ideas. Then, we speak with Anne Ishii about the value of taking time with art and what she’s excited about as the host of WHYY’s Movers & Makers. Lightbox Film Center is not only preserving film but giving director Wayne Wang a chance to present a director’s cut of one of his cult classics. The Philadelphia Orchestra is bringing its own new ideas to Fiddler on the Roof, and the weekly roundup features a handful of events that show how artists in the city continue to thrive and evolve despite the odds.
With spring around the corner, it’s a delight to see new perspectives integrating into the art scene.
