About this Article

Sir David McVicar's "Giulio Cesare" will appear in simulcast at select suburban movie theaters as part of the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD series. If your thing is less opera and more "out of this world," C2E2 brings comic books, sci-fi and pop culture idols to the McCormick Place in Chicago. And if your youngsters need a Sesame Street Live fix, "Elmo Makes Music" comes to the Rosemont Theatre next week.
