Hudson Yards’ multi-arts center The Shed now has an opening date: April 5, 2019. In an interview with the New York Times, artistic director and chief executive Alex Poots said that construction of the 200,000 square foot building is still underway, but on track to be completed in time for the April opening. It’ll include the McCourt space, described by NYT as “a dynamic area that can be covered with a movable shell,” a 500-seat theater that can be subdivided into multiple spaces, two column-free galleries, and rooms for rehearsals and other events.

Bjork will premiere Cornucopia, her “most elaborate stage concert yet,” on May 6 at The Shed. It’ll run until June 1, and tickets go on sale on February 20. Stay tuned for more ticket information.

The Shed’s inaugural season will also include Dragon Spring Phoenix Rise, a “kung-fu musical” featuring music from Sia, remixed by The Haxan Cloak and Arca, and running June 22-July 27; Powerplay, a collaboration between Latasha Alcindor and Dis Obey (The Shed’s program for teenagers), on May 18 and 19; and Reich Richter Pärt, which includes music from Steve Reich and Arvo Pärt, and art from Gerhard Richter, running April 6-June 2. The Shed lists all the programs announced so far.
