According to Dan Fishman, the vice president of public events at Bryant Park Corporation, “Bryant Park Picnic Performances is an uncommonly collaborative project that is meant to showcase the best of the arts in New York City.”

“I can think of no better way to honor New York than to work together with the city’s many cultural institutions, both large and small,” she said.

Opening its season on June 1 is a fully staged and costumed performance of Puccini’s “La Boheme.” Jazzmobile, Joe’s Pub, the Classical Theatre of Harlem, and Carnegie Hall are among the other presenters this season.

On August 26th, Brooklyn’s experimental music lab Roulette will host a concert fronted by the mesmerizing drone-rock combination 75 Dollar Bill; on September 9th, East Village global music nightclub Drom will host the U.S. debut of Turkish singer Gaye Su Akyol. On September 14th, Harlem Stage will close out its 40th anniversary season.
