The Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 Ai-S works fine for stage events if you are close enough, but you have to close the lens to f/2 in order to get sharp photos and to avoid the "soft" touch of this lens when wide open.
At f/2 this lens creates some small stars on front light sources, close at f/2.8 to increase the effect if you can.
Lenshood is also a must in order to avoid as much as possible some light sources and keep away internal lens refractions.
Stage events are perfect for playing with such manual focus lenses. But you will lose the attention on the event too ;-)
