N.Y. Philharmonic rides ‘Carousel’

Tuner on tap for orchestra's 2012-13 season

A production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1945 musical “Carousel” is among the offerings on tap as part of the 2012-13 season from the New York Philharmonic.

The predominantly music-centric lineup at the Philharmonic also includes an interdisciplinary staging of ballet “Petrushka” from the creative team behind the Philharmonic’s 2010 buzz-magnet incarnation of opera “Le Grand Macabre.” Alec Baldwin, meanwhile, is set to return as the host of the company’s regular radio broadcast, “The New York Philharmonic This Week.”

The “Carousel” production, set to air on national TV as part of the skein “Live From Lincoln Center,” reunites helmer James Brennan and conductor Rob Fisher, the duo also behind the Philharmonic’s 2007 staging of “My Fair Lady” toplined by Kelsey Grammer and Kelli O’Hara. No cast has yet been announced for “Carousel,” which gets a quick run at the Philharmonic Feb. 27-March 2, 2013.

The new version of Stravinsky’s “Petrushka” comes from director and designer Doug Fitch and troupe Giants are Small, in a staging that incorporates animation, video projections, puppetry and dance. Show, paired on a double-bill with a performance of Stravinsky’s “The Fairy’s Kiss,” runs June 27-29, 2013.

Led by music director Alan Gilbert, the Philharmonic kicks off its 2012-13 season in September with a series of concerts showcasing work by Stravinsky, Kurtag and Beethoven.
