NYCGO Logo Officially inaugurated in 1983 (it ran in a looser form the two previous autumns), BAM's annual Next Wave Festival serves as New York's most comprehensive and daring survey of avant-garde music, theater, opera and dance. Among this year’s highlights, Shakespeare’s sonnets staged by Next Wave mainstay Robert Wilson and the Berliner Ensemble, with a score by Rufus Wainwright; Beckett plays from the Royal Court Theater and Mighty Mouth, a revival of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America (both parts 1 and 2) by Dutch director Ivo van Hove and his Tonneelgroep Amsterdam; music from Philip Glass, Meredith Monk and Vijay Iyer; and new dance pieces from Benjamin Millepied, William Forsythe and Justin Peck. Expect intriguing work from emerging avant-garde talents, with plenty of artist talks worked into the stew. For more information, visit
