Susan Lewis considers why Chopin's music appeals to ballet choreographers, as Pennsylvania Ballet stages a trio of works on March 13 and 14, 2010 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the 19th-century composer's birth.

As part of celebrations of Samuel Barber's centenary, David Patrick Stearns looks ahead to performances of Antony and Cleopatra by the Curtis Opera Theatre.

Tom Keels previews Philadelphia on Stone, a new exhibition at the Library Company of Philadelphia exploring how local lithographers have depicted their city from the 1800 to the present day.
