Latin Flavor, Gypsy Flair

Ballet Hispánico at the Apollo Theater

This troupe, led by Eduardo Vilaro, returns to the Apollo on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., with three works, including Michelle Manzanales’s “Con Brazos Abiertos” (“With Open Arms”), a playful look at her Mexican-American childhood in Texas from 2017. What was it like to be caught between cultures? In “Espiritu Vivo” (2012), Ronald K. Brown explores grief and finds inspiration in the meeting of African and Latino diasporas in the Caribbean and Latin America. And the Spanish choreographer Ramón Oller offers “Bury Me Standing,” from 1998, which touches on Gypsy culture. GIA KOURLAS

Hallelujahs in the Highest

‘Messiah’ at St. Thomas Church

Yes, it’s that time of year again. At7:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday, Daniel Hyde leads what remains an essential “Messiah,” featuring the inimitable sound of the St. Thomas Choir of Men and Boys. New York Baroque Incorporated provides the orchestral accompaniment on period instruments, with the soloists Ellie Dehn, Clare McNamara, Lawrence Jones and Jesse Blumberg. DAVID ALLEN

Drinks of Darkness, With a Lynch Chaser

‘Goth(ic)’ at the Metrograph

This latest attempt at genre splicing from the Metrograph, running Friday through Dec. 31, traces the cinematic evolution from the Gothic (represented by such films as “Bride of Frankenstein” and “Rebecca,” both showing Sunday, and Jack Clayton’s “The Innocents,” based on a Henry James novella and showing Dec. 9) to the more irreverent goth stylings of Kathryn Bigelow (“Near Dark,” Dec. 15) and David Lynch. In part because of Trent Reznor’s contributions on the soundtrack, Mr. Lynch’s “Lost Highway” (Saturday) is a sonically terrifying experience in a movie theater. BEN KENIGSBERG
