On Feb. 15, Exhibition on Screen brings "Michelangelo: Love and Death," a cinematic journey through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican, to the print and drawing rooms of Europe, to explore Michelangelo's 89 years of "Renaissance genius."

On Feb. 25, the Bolshoi Ballet broadcast brings "Lady of the Camellias" to the Opera House with another modern interpretation of a classic. "With their dizzying sweep and fluid spirals, Neumeier's pas de deuxs are love in flight, romance personified. The score, samplings of melancholic Chopin (much of it his most famous nocturnes, sonatas, etc.) only heightens the emotions," wrote Dance Tab.

Doors open at noon. Tickets $20 each.
