'The Flight' Opening Reception @ Bronx Blue Bedroom Project
Opening reception for 'The Flight – An Installation and Video by Fannie AlliĆ©' will be held at Bronx Blue Bedroom Project (309 Alexander Avenue, #3A) tomorrow, 2/7, from 2 to 5pm. 'The Flight' is an exhibition in which a video of a window is projected on the actual windows of the bedroom. This video revolves around a character’s interaction with his window. In the blue bedroom, she will also install a bed next to the projection. On this bed, there will be a human body shape, sleeping. The artist is interested in creating an intimate environment where imaginary and real world, fiction and reality would be combined together. Using the image of the window -which is a separation between the viewer and the outside world, she focuses on the dreams or the unconscious desires that anyone can have. The installation will be on view thru Feb 28. Click here for more info.

Donizetti's @ Lehman
The Met's production of Lucia di Lammermoor unfurls a tight tapestry of family honor, forbidden love, heartbreak, madness, and death. Donizetti's opera is based on a British novel about 17th-century Scotland and is about implacable enemies, cross-purposes that cannot be resolved, and, above all, one woman's unquestioning, unquenchable love. Lucia loves beyond reason and conveys her love in extravagant song. Performance is free and takes place tomorrow, 2/7, at 1pm in the Lovinger Theatre. Click here for more info.
