For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow As a 200th-birthday present to Giuseppe Verdi, who was born on Oct. 9, 1813, the Metropolitan Opera premieres a lavish new production of the composer’s final opera, the comedic Falstaff (below), based on the lovably roguish character in Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV, Part I and Part II. Composed when Verdi


was nearly 80 (he died in 1901), Falstaff debuted at La Scala in 1893. It was an immediate popular success, a triumph praised for its variety of musical colors and textures. » Falstaff, Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center, Columbus Ave., btw W. 63rd & W. 64th sts., 212.362.6000, Dec. 6, 9, 14 (mat), 18, 21 (mat), 27 & 30

The Ring Cycle Rebirth: Recent Work by Mariko Mori is the Japanese pop artist’s first solo exhibition in New York in more than 10 years, an ambitious multimedia, immersive installation consisting of 35 interrelated sculptures, drawings, photographs, sound and video works, dating from the period 2001-2013. Mori (b. 1967) takes as her theme the circle of life, from birth to death to birth anew. She has divided the exhibition into four thematic units: Emergence, Origin, Rupture and Rebirth. It is in the first section, Emergence, that visitors confront “Ring” (right, 2012), a Lucite sculpture, four feet in diameter, which acts as the prelude to and summation of the exhibit’s narrative. Suspended from and in front of the waterfall in the Japan Society’s indoor water and bamboo lobby garden, the work symbolizes the life force, which is not only cyclical but also continuous, having neither beginning nor end.

There are partnerships in ballet that make the heart—and time itself—stand still. Perhaps the most idolized pairing from yesteryear is that of Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. The Fonteyn and Nureyev of today may very well be Alicia Graf Mack and Jamar Roberts of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (below). Audiences fall under their spell, so well-matched are they in grace and stature—she has legs that go on forever, while he rises to an Olympian 6 feet 4 inches. “Liquid, seamless sexuality” is how the critic for California’s Berkleyside news site praised their performance in April in choreographer Jiri Kylian’s “Petite Mort.” » Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, New York City Center, 131 W. 55th St., 212.581.1212, Dec. 4-Jan. 5

Where’s Nina? In his distinguished and thankfully long career as a caricaturist, Al Hirschfeld (1903-2003) immortalized showbiz greats. To be “Hirschfelded” was a sure sign that one had arrived. But it was on his daughter, Nina, born in 1945, that he arguably bestowed the greatest fame. Following her birth, he began to hide her name in most of his drawings. Searching for “Nina” soon became a game for his legions of fans. Can you spot the “Nina” in the 1979 drawing of actor Jack Lemmon (left), included in the New York Public Library’s retrospective? Hint: Check out the fringe of hair at the nape of Lemmon’s neck. And for even more Hirschfelds, visit Henri Bendel department store, whose main window and holiday installation pay homage to the incomparable artist. » The Line King’s Library: Al Hirschfeld at The New York Public Library, Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, 40 Lincoln Center Plz., 917.275.6975, thru Jan. 4; Henri Bendel, 712 Fifth Ave., 212.247.1100, thru Jan. 2

great dining experiences by Lois Levine

Theater Mangia

Adding to the burgeoning Lower East Side restaurant scene is a spot that makes for great one-stop shopping: a restaurant and dance club in one. Dinner on Ludlow marries comfort food with an innovative American spin in a dark, almost Gothic-like setting (tall brown leather banquettes and ornate chandeliers adorn the dining space, inset); and the menu, helmed by the young, talented Executive Chef John Keller, gets extra points for original pairings. Why not a fried green tomato with your steak tartare or chicken meatballs with green apples and cabbage slaw (above)? Additionally, a house cheesecake, served like swirls of marshmallow with berries, might be the creamiest cheesecake ever experienced. Dine late and you can enjoy the upstairs dance club to work off all those oh-so-worth-it calories. » Dinner on Ludlow, 95 Delancey St., 212.228.0909

Beguiling Carlyle Somedays I long for the old New York City, the one my mother used to tell me about, where white-gloved women would lunch at the Colony, and men in jackets would escort their wives in swanky cocktail dresses to the bar at ‘21.’ Café Carlyle (left) maintains a piece of this glamorous heyday, a genuine restaurant/supper club. White tableclolths, dim lighting, shaded lamps at every table and exotic murals by Hungarian artist Marcel Vertès all point to the kind of evening George Gershwin would have loved. A dinner of a house salad with a piquant dressing and tender salmon with mixed vegetables was appropriately elegant, but the food is only part of the entertainment: On a recent night, the timeless Judy Collins sang such favorites as “Send in the Clowns” and “Both Sides Now.” The Carlyle is a slice of the city you just never want to see disappear. » Café Carlyle, The Carlyle, 35 E. 76th St., 212.744.1600

When you are having one of those where-do-I-eat-before-theater dilemmas, it’s worth it to cast your eye on Puttanesca. The Italian trattoria is warm and authentic: A white marble bar, multicolored tile floors and brick walls convey a cozy ambience that is a respite from the maddening world of the Theater District outside. The menu offers everything from traditional Italian fare (fettuccine Bolognese) to whole roasted Cornish hen (below). You can also choose your vino from a good-sized wine list, reasonably priced, and served by a friendly waitstaff. So, take note, before going to see something like Big Fish at the Neil Simon Theatre, you may want to start the evening with a big pasta. » Puttanesca, 859 Ninth Ave., 212.581.4177

eclectic collector

art, antiques & Collectibles by Troy Segal

There are several ways to appreciate the bookshelf prints of Phil Shaw, part of the exhibit Storytelling. From afar, they appear a series of near-abstract, color-saturated shapes. Move in closer, and they resemble realistic portraits of used tomes. Look closer still, and an inside joke emerges: In a work like “Londonensi Subterraneis: Victoria Linea” (above, 2012), the books are the actual color of London’s Victoria tube line, and each title contains the name of a stop. But perhaps one shouldn’t overanalyze. As the artist himself (who also has a NYC subway series on display) professes, “I enjoy poking fun at dogma— wherever it lurks.” » Rebecca Hossack Gallery, 262 Mott St., 212.925.3500, Dec. 15-Jan. 12

Spectral Vision

A-Tisket, A-Tasket … A wizard with wire, sculptor Susana Solano often works on a large scale, giving such 65” x 73” x 66” pieces as “Bura II” (above, 2001-2005) the endearing air of a giant housewife’s tool. Perhaps that’s why her show A Metai de Camí— Halfway There is spread across two art galleries. » Jack Shainman, 513 W. 20th St., 212.645.1701, & 524 W. 24th St., 212.337.3372, thru Jan. 11

In Remembrance of Things Past We think of Art Deco as the onset of sleek modern style. But many of that era’s designers were actually inspired by the lightness and delicate decoration of late-18th-century French furniture. Such a one was Marc du Plantier (19011975), whose 1940s mahogany desk (above) features flourishes like gilt Corinthian column tops on its legs. » Bernd Goeckler Antiques, 30 E. 10th St., 212.777.8209


A ghost represents something that refuses to stay in the past—which makes Ghost Paintings an especially apt title for David Salle’s show, consisting as it does of works created back in 1992, but never sighted—er, displayed—until now. The 13 paintings consist of photographed images printed on

linen panels, which are then painted with a trio of vividly hued bands. The photos depict a female model manipulating a large piece of fabric; in some, her face is slightly visible, but in others, such as “Ghost 11” (above), she seems to be nothing but a wavy sheet—just like a phantom, in fact. » Skarstedt, 20 E. 79th St., 212.737.2060, thru Dec. 21

INSIDE FINE ART GALLERY HASTED KRAEUTLER SARAH HASTED & JOSEPH KRAEUTLER Owners of Hasted Kraeutler, a contemporary art gallery that is located in the heart of New York’s Chelsea art district. Sarah and Joseph share art works from the gallery’s outstanding roster of artists, including painter Kim Dong Yoo, sculptor Kwang Young Chun, and photographer Nick Brandt.


Kim Dong Yoo Installation view

Kwang Young Chun is a Korean master sculptor who is world renowned for his process of composing structures with thousands of small triangles, each individually hand molded in paper and strung together one by one. The artist gathers mulberry paper from old books with .RUHDQWH[WVDQGG\HVWKHSDSHUVLQWRPDQ\GLIIHUHQWVKDGHVZLWKWHDVDQGÀRZHUV&KXQ¶V complicated and meticulous sculptures are stunning, a must see!

NICK BRANDT Nick Brandt’s photographs feature stunning images of endangered African animals, which he photographs “in the same way I would a human being, watching for the right ‘pose’ that hopefully will best capture his or her spirit,” he says. Always “moving in close” he never uses a telephoto lens, because it is too impersonal. Prices of the photographs start at $4,500. Hasted Kraeutler is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm. Nick Brandt, Elephant Drinking, Amboseli, 2007

theater news by Francis Lewis

Balancing Act Not every man can reinvent the wheel, but Jeannot Painchaud, artistic director of Cirque Éloize and co-director of Cirkopolis (left), has. Of course, we mean the German wheel, the big piece of metal that is maneuvered onstage by six men in Cirkopolis—not one, as is the tradition. “The goal,” Painchaud says of the show, which combines circus acts, theater and dance, “is to reinvent every time. The juggling act, for example, starts off as a bunch of people typing in an office. Suddenly, the papers become clubs, and the office goes crazy. We love doing things like that.” » Cirkopolis, NYU Skirball

The Life Behind the Music Singer/songwriter Carole King is no stranger to Broadway. In the 1980s, several of her hit songs (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” included) were featured in three revues; in the early 1990s, she was a replacement actress in the musical Blood Brothers. Now, the pop-music icon gets the biographical treatment in Beautiful— The Carole King Musical. Playing King is Jessie Mueller (below, with Jake Epstein as King’s songwriting partner and first husband, Gerry Goffin). “I have to pinch myself,” Mueller says of her own meteoric rise, from a Tony Award-nominated supporting turn in the 2011 revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever to headlining a big-budget musical. “Man, this show is the Pandora’s box of hits from the Sixties. It’s fascinating because so many people love Carole King, and hopefully we’re deepening that by letting them in on what was going on when she was writing her music, either the joy or the pain it came out of. It’s completely humanizing and extremely relatable.”

» Beautiful—The Carole King Musical, Stephen Sondheim Theatre, 124 W. 43rd St., 212.239.6200

Transformation The title of the play is Becoming Dr. Ruth, so how did actress Debra Jo Rupp (right) become noted sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer? “The first thing I did was to start with the dialect,” says the star of TV’s That ‘70s Show (1998-2006). “I knew the height wasn’t going to be a problem [Dr. Ruth stands 4 feet 7 inches tall, Rupp is 5 feet 2 inches]. Once I mastered her walk, or felt that I did, that really informed a lot for me.” Rupp recounts how 20-year-old Westheimer was hit by shrapnel from a bomb in Palestine.


“The largest pieces were in her neck, and the top of her right foot was blown off. She had to learn to walk again, So, she has a different kind of gait. It’s very quick, which is how I walk. I call it marching. I think short people tend to march everywhere because we have to keep up with the people we’re walking with. And we look up a lot,” she adds, with a laugh. » Becoming Dr. Ruth, Westside Theatre Upstairs, 407 W. 43rd St., 212.239.6200

Caviar Nightcap

Gin House The Brits revere gin—and for good reason. During their colonization of India, the gin and tonic helped troops stave off malaria (thanks to quinine’s medicinal qualities). Churchill himself said, “The gin and tonic has saved more English lives, and minds, than all the doctors in the Empire.” So, it makes perfect sense that The Winslow (above), a pub of the United Kingdom stripe, has devoted itself to the elixir, serving gin styles from London Dry to Old Tom that can be paired with flavored house-made tonics or mixed into cocktails, such as the Stallion (with Barolo Chinato, curaçao and bitters). Jolly good. » The Winslow, 243 E. 14th St., 212.777.7717


Step Into My Office In the 1920s, you’d have to be a business mogul or socialite heir to land an invitation to the office and salon of the wealthy American financier John W. Campbell (1880-1957). Not anymore. The Campbell Apartment (above), a lavish bar that inhabits the space, lets you enter the world of yesteryear’s elite—dressed to impress—and sip classic cocktails amid intricate woodwork, decorative beamed ceilings and towering paned windows. Seated by the stone fireplace, it’s all too easy to slip into another era. » The Campbell Apartment, Grand Central Terminal, 15 Vanderbilt Ave., 212.953.0409

Prepare yourselves for luxury in liquid form. Petrossian New York—an opulent, French-inflected restaurant steps from Carnegie Hall—has gotten creative with caviar, turning a highly coveted culinary delicacy into a crave-inducing cocktail enhancer. Step up to the mirrored Art Deco bar (being able to watch yourself indulge makes it all the more enjoyable), order a Fleur de Vers (left; a sublime combination of gin, St. Germain, Green Chartreuse, fresh lemon and rose water, garnished artfully with caviar powder in a lemon peel “boat”) and discover a new joie de vivre. » Petrossian New York, 182 W. 58th St., 212.245.2214

Bag Fever Paying tribute to its namesake founder means going beyond the well-made women’s bags and shoes (left) for which Etienne Aigner is known. The brand’s first flagship, located in SoHo, features its very own sun-filled reading room—a nod to Aigner’s humble beginnings in leather as a bookbinder. The shop is part of a massive face-lift for the 63-year-old brand, which now focuses on “beautilitarian” (beautiful and utilitarian) frocks inspired by the lives of modern women. Highlights from the Fall/ Winter collection include a leather-sleeved wool cape and a silk ballet dress. » Etienne Aigner, 65 Greene St., 212.334.1079

s k a e p S n i d Dujar silent no more. is r to ac ch en fr g The über-charmin and a slew of ar sc o an , es ur ct pi ion g two new major mot talkinG—and feelin in rd ja du an je ve ha accolades By Beth Kalet pretty darn good.


ven before he uttered a word, America fell in love with Jean Dujardin, the French actor whose starring role in the 2011 silent, black-and-white film The Artist brought him to the nation’s attention. His portrayal of matinee idol George Valentin won him a series of best actor awards, from the Palme d’Or in Cannes to the Golden Globe to the Screen Actors Guild to an Academy Award, making him the first Frenchman to take the Oscar for best leading actor. Dujardin brought to the screen a combination of devilish charm and a James Bondian suavity, softened by a comedian’s self-deprecating humor, and audiences ate it up. While his character George Valentin’s career foundered as talkies took over the film industry, Dujardin’s own star has soared. He hit New York City last year making the rounds of the late-night television shows, including Saturday Night Live and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where he talked to Fallon about wordless acting. “It’s more instinctive,” he told the host. “Your body does the work. It’s not intellectual.” His job as an actor in this unusual new take on an old style, he explained, was not complicated: “It is just telling a story. That’s cinema. It’s not silent, black and white. It’s a simple story that’s well made.” “I discovered that silent film is almost an advantage,” he continued. “You just have to think of the feeling for it to show. No lines pollute it. It doesn’t take much—a gaze, an eyelash flutter—for the emotion to be vivid.” Already a popular and successful actor and comedian in France, Dujardin’s stature in American movies will be solidified with two new dramatic films. In The Wolf of Wall Street, which is about the rise and fall of real-life stockbroker Jordan Belfort, he joins a cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill. The film, which is directed by Martin Scorsese, is in theaters on Christmas Day. Next up, The Monuments Men, co-written and directed by George Clooney. Dujardin is cast alongside a roster of Hollywood A-listers, including Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman. The historically driven adventure thriller revolves around an Allied platoon of art historians, museum directors and curators who are asked by President Franklin Roosevelt to go behind enemy lines during the waning days of Hitler’s regime

to retrieve stolen works of art. The film is scheduled for release in early 2014. Dujardin has been compared to leading men from today, such as Clooney, and also to film’s venerable heartthrobs: Clark Gable, Cary Grant and Jean-Paul Belmondo, one of his own acting idols, with whom he had the chance to perform in the 2008 film Un homme et son chien (A man and his dog). Born June 19, 1972, in a Paris suburb, Jean Edmond Dujardin was never a great student, more of a daydreamer, he notes, which led teachers to call him “Jean from the moon.” After completing high school, he worked in his family construction business and served in the military. When he was in his early 20s, he started writing stand-up bits and performing them in Paris bars. He joined an ensemble of four comedians, and together the five called themselves Nous Ç Nous. It was from this group that Dujardin’s acting career was launched when Nous Ç Nous appeared on a French TV talent show called Graines de star. A few years later, he was cast as the lead in a French romantic-comedy TV series called Un gars, une fille (A guy, a girl). Next came film: He played a ditsy surfer in Brice de Nice, then a French spy spoof, OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies. That film won him an Étoile d’Or award (French film critics award) and a César Award nomination for Best Actor (the French equivalent of the Oscars). That film was also the beginning of a collaboration with director Michel Hazanavicius, who would later direct him in The Artist. As devoted as Dujardin is to film these days, he sees his domestic life as a priority. “I don’t want to become a superstar and not see my family anymore,” he says. Dujardin has two sons, Jules and Simon, from his first marriage. His wife, actress Alexandra Lamy, whom he married in 2009 and who co-starred with him in Un gars, une fille, has a daughter from a previous marriage. As thrilled—and somewhat surprised—as he is with his success, his wish to remain under the radar may be a bit harder to accomplish after his two most recent Hollywood films. The “hunk with an adorable French accent,” as he has been called, exclaimed to the Hollywood audience upon accepting the Oscar for Best Actor, “I love your country!” Looks like America is loving him right back.

’Tis the time of year when music fills the air, the stores, the lobbies. Whether your taste runs to classic carols, Broadway tunes, jazz licks or cabaret ballads, there’s a holiday beat for you. By Ken Scrudato


he acceptable date for retailers to begin blaring “Frosty the Snowman” is the subject of endless debate. Yet, when that moment does arrive each year, it means a month of holiday-themed tunes. Happily, the musical offerings in New York City are so diverse that everyone—from nippers to hipsters, grandmas to grad students—can find something to make spirits bright. Seasonal Stages. The town’s most famed holiday musical traditions have endured for decades. George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker at the New York City Ballet (David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center, Columbus Ave., at W. 63rd St., 212.496.0600, thru Jan. 4) which debuted in 1954, remains for many the definitive version of the Tchaikovsky-scored classic, with its dancing snowflakes and sugarplums. And the famed Rockettes of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular (Radio City Music Hall, 1260 Sixth Ave., 866.858.0007, thru Dec. 30), have been high-kicking for 86 years.

Holiday traditions, old and new: Returning for its second year, A Christmas Story, The Musical (facing page) features an original score. Choreographed by George Balanchine, The New York City Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker (this page) has ushered in the festive season since 1954.

notes—and they figure prominently in The Three Holiday Belles concert (The Town Hall, 123 W. 43rd St., 800.982.2787, Dec. 19), in which songstresses Christine Andreas, Marilyn Maye and Leslie Uggams weave their seasonal favorites with contemporaneous classics from the Great American Songbook. “It’s going to be a great night, a musical Christmas present for us all,” Andreas promises. As its name suggests, A Broadway Christmas With Brian Stokes Mitchell (Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center, Columbus Ave., at W. 64th St., 212.721.6500, Dec. 20-21) features the Tony Award-winning actor (whom The New York Times has dubbed “the last leading man”) raising his lush baritone in show tunes from vintage musicals, interspersed with holiday fare; his backup band is none other than the New York Philharmonic, under the baton of veteran Broadway orchestrator Ted Sperling. Prefer some syncopation in those seasonal tunes? The Big Band Holidays concerts (Rose Theater, Time Warner Center, Broadway, at W. 60th St., 212.721.6500, Dec. 12-14) team the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis, with vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant (she’s been compared to Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith) to perform Swing Era arrangements of songs, some rendered near-unrecognizable by those red-hot riffs. Singers Klea Blackhurst, Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch take audiences on a swinging sleigh ride, accom-

Those preferring something a little less iconic can turn to Broadway stages. Even though it’s set during the holiday season, in A Christmas Story, The Musical (The Theater at Madison Square Garden, Seventh Ave., btw W. 31st & W. 33rd sts., 866.858.0008, Dec. 11-29), there’s nary a carol to be heard in its original score that depicts the adventures of two brothers in a 1940s small town. Or, take in a show that is decidedly not “White Christmas”-y, and instead visit a summery Greek isle, the setting of Mamma Mia!, or sun-baked Africa, via The Book of Mormon or The Lion King (see Entertainment listings, starting on p. 56). Swingle Bells. A lot of the sentimental, secular carols we know and love (“The Christmas Song,” “Winter Wonderland”) date from the 1930s and 1940s, says Maurice Russell, senior vice president of client services for HFA, which issues licenses for song recordings and reproductions on CDs and digital downloads. “They still have mass appeal today,” as Russell

panied by bass and drums, during “A Swinging Birdland Christmas” (Birdland Jazz Club, 315 W. 44th St., 212.581.3080, Dec. 21-25). As familiar as the soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas is now, Vince Guaraldi’s jazz score was quite groundbreaking back when the TV special aired in 1965, including reworkings of the hymn “What Child Is This” and Beethoven’s “Für Elise,” as well as original compositions. The New York Pops, aided by a host of dancers and actors, performs a live version of A Charlie Brown Christmas (Carnegie Hall, 881 Seventh Ave., 212.247.7800, Dec. 21), part of its holiday concert series. Also in the everything-old-is-new-again category: The Graff Family Holiday Special (54 Below, 254 W 54th St., 646.476.3551, Dec. 14 & 16). Within the confines of a cozy supper club, a quartet of performers undertake an old-time holiday variety show, complete with coordinated mufflers, audience sing-alongs, “surprise” guests and creamy harmonies. Classical Compositions. Performances of Handel’s epic oratorio, the Messiah, abound this time of the year. One of the city’s most beloved is that of Musica Sacra, a professional chorus and chamber orchestra, which has been doing its characteristically light, bright and buoyant version—with intuitive sensitivity for Baroque music style—since 1976; this year’s presentations occur at Carnegie Hall, Dec. 12 & 15. But if you think there can be nothing new about a 272-year-old work, Distinguished Concerts International New York’s Messiah … Refreshed! at Avery Fisher Hall (Dec. 1) proves you wrong. The group present a little-known version of the classic piece, a 1959 reorchestration by Sir Thomas Beecham and Eugene Goossens. With extra instruments and a large chorus, it’s bombastic and fullbodied, offering a lush, leisurely interpretation. While showbiz names are busy lighting up the marquees, the city’s young musical prodigies are conveying the momentousness of the holidays. National Public Radio commentator Rob Kapilow presents the Brooklyn Youth Chorus in Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols (Walter Reade Theater, 165 W. 65th St., 212.721.6500, Dec. 9). Incorporating carols and poems written in the 15th and 16th centuries, this quietly stirring piece “offers a profound rethinking of the meaning of the season and a brilliant modernization of some of its oldest texts,” Kapilow says. The Juilliard Pre-College String Ensemble performs a concert that includes the Corelli Christmas Concerto (Peter Jay Sharp Theater, 155 W. 65th St., 212.769.7406, Dec. 21). In contrast to the Britten work, whose lyrics specifically refer to the season (“Welcome,

Yule!” the chorus sings at one point), Corelli’s piece (officially, the Concerto Grosso in G Minor) really has no holiday tie-in. “Corelli composed his Concerto Grosso for his patron, Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni, for whom it was first performed on Christmas Eve,” explains Juilliard Pre-College Administrative Director of Performance Activities Robert Ross. Not a holiday concert, then—though the sight of musicians, whose average age is 12, performing this and other classical works makes one believe in Christmas miracles. For a truly holy holiday experience, featuring traditions new and old, head to the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola (980 Park Ave., 212.288.2520), whose lavish bronze doors and intricate marble mosaics provide an ornate backdrop to seasonal sounds. The church is the new home of A Chanticleer Christmas (Dec. 8 & 9)—the famed Grammy Award-winning, 12-member male chorus lending its a cappella harmonies to medieval and Renaissance chants and hymns (and very likely a modern carol or two). Later, the Choir and Orchestra of St. Ignatius Loyola perform the church’s annual Christmas concert (Dec. 15 & 18). This year’s edition, A Child Is Born, features a modern classic, Vaughan Williams’ “Fantasia on Greensleeves,” along with excerpts from (what else?) Messiah. So, whether the bells be swinging or sentimental or sacred— they jingle all the way.

The Surrey Hotel

’Tis the Season The holidays in New York can be magical, mythical and even a little manic. Strolling through Central Park as snowflakes dance their way to the ground, feeling humbled underneath the towering Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and weaving through the hordes of holiday shoppers are all par for the course, making the experience truly a memorable one. Lorena Ringoot, concierge at The Surrey Hotel, says that she treasures her annual holiday rituals, especially “Midnight Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral with family and friends.” This, of course, comes after she’s picked up the perfect gifts from her roster of go-to stores: Le Dû’s Wines in the Village (“The former Daniel’s sommelier is always ready to help find the right wine choices”); Anya Hindmarch, a leather bag and accessories shop, on the Upper East Side (“Check out the second floor with an on-premises embosser”); and Smythson in Midtown (“For the perfect iPhone cover or a business-card holder in a fun color”). For fun, she recommends scoping out the entire metropolis from Top of the Rock and visiting the New York Botanical TIPS FROM: Garden for its annual Holiday Train Show. And when Lorena Ringoot, Concierge, the hustle and bustle is all over, and things finally The Surrey Hotel, quiet down, this busy concierge says she takes a 20 E. 76th St., 212.905.1477 deep breath to “reflect about life, recycle energy and regrow,” just in time for the new year.—Joni Sweet KEY TO SYMBOLS IN LISTINGS On the following pages, important features are indicated by these icons: $ inexpensive, $$ mod­erate, $$$ ex­pensive, $$$$ luxe; 2 handicap accessible; 0 gifts; 1 child friendly; 3 food/snacks; / drinks; 9 gay/lesbian patrons; 6 dress code; 5 music; . private rooms; 7 fireplace; 8 outdoor dining; 4 New York CityPASS.

Trivia and tidbits on the city that never sleeps

Ellis Islands To create more space for Ellis Island (left), two new islands were built in the early part of the 20th century, using landfill from New York City subway tunnels as well as other sources. The second island became part of the hospital administration and contagious diseases ward, while the third island held the psychiatric ward. By 1906, Ellis Island combined embraced 27 acres, an increase from its original size of only three acres.

Over 250,000 people annually view the Lord & Taylor holiday windows, built in a workshop underneath the store’s sidewalk.

Christmas in May

An Old New Year’s Eve The first celebration in Times Square (above) took place in 1904, which also commemorated the official opening of the new headquarters of The New York Times. An all-day festival included a fireworks display and at midnight, some 200,000 people cheered in the New Year.

Although Miracle on 34th Street is set during the holiday season, then20th Century Fox studio head Darryl F. Zanuck insisted that the film be released in May, because, he argued, more people went to the movies during the summer. So, the studio promoted it for spring, keeping the fact that it was about Christmas a secret.

“Cut off as I am, it is inevitable that I should sometimes feel like a shadow walking in a shadowy world. When this happens, I ask to be taken to New York City. Always I return home … [with] the comforting certainty that mankind is real flesh and I myself am not a dream.”—Helen Keller 96

Looking for some great ideas of what to wear to a holiday party? The lush book, Jazz Age Fashion: Dressed to Kill (Rizzoli, 2013, below), can surely help. The tome is filled with images of Jazz Age garb: cocktail gowns, opera coats, evening jackets and more, including rare beaded dresses and feathered capes. Authors Virginia Bates and Daisy Bates also explain the detailing behind the ornamentation of each piece, a real treat for fashion lovers.
