Staged Reading | Insulted. Belarus(sia): The Story of The Belarusian Revolution (virtual)


The play tells the story of the first month of the Belarusian revolution, its ups and downs on the eve of the inevitable democratization of the country after 26 years of dictatorship. All characters have real prototypes; in some you will recognize former and current leaders of the country, in others - incredible Belarusians who have gone out to battle the totalitarian machine, sometimes at the cost of their lives, their freedom, and their loved ones. They represent polar points of view in the awakened Belarusian society. The author seeks to understand how the Belarusian revolution differs from Prague in 1968, Russia in 1991 and Ukraine in 2014. He tells of the tragic escalation of violence and repression employed by the authorities to repress freedom-seeking Belarusians with bayonets and clubs, and how solidarity, truth and faith in human values inevitably lead to victory over evil. Written by Andrei Kureichik who will join the reading from hiding. There will be a post-show discussion with the cast and audience.

Opera | Met Opera: Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor (virtual)


The tragic tale of "the bride of Lammermoor" has always been a favorite of opera-goers and sopranos alike. Yet with the riveting singing actress Natalie Dessay in the title role, Lucia's plight and descent into madness take on another dimension. Joseph Calleja is an ardent Edgardo, the man she loves but is not allowed to marry. Instead, her brother Enrico (Ludovic Tezier) forces her into a union with the rich Arturo (Matthew Plenk) to save the family fortunes. It proves too much to bear for Lucia--but certainly not for Met audiences, who hailed Dessay's stunning performance of this iconic bel canto role.

Opera | Met Opera: Wagner’s Parsifal (virtual)


The Met assembled an ideal cast for François Girard’s acclaimed new production of Wagner’s final masterpiece. Jonas Kaufmann in the title role of the fool “made wise by compassion” is as convincing vocally as he is haunting dramatically, delivering a thoroughly moving portrayal. René Pape is equally compelling as Gurnemanz, the veteran Knight of the Grail, and Katarina Dalayman thrillingly brings out the dual sides of Kundry. Peter Mattei is Amfortas, the anguished ruler of the Grail’s kingdom, and Evgeny Nikitin sings the evil magician Klingsor. Daniele Gatti on the podium reveals both the serenity and dramatic tension of what may be Wagner’s greatest score.

Explore the history of speakeasies in New York City, and how the strict men's only drinking clubs of pre-1920s America were replaced with cosmopolitan watering holes where the only rule was to have fun. Led by art historian and museum educator Sylvia Laudien-Meo, this presentation will include: - An overview of the Temperance Movement, from the series of events that led to the 18th Amendment in 1920, to the complex effects it had on NYC's social life, to creative ways people worked around it; - The rise and proliferation of the Speakeasy -- while it created new trouble in American society like bootlegging and organized crime, it also paved the way for a burgeoning of gifted entertainers and the women's social liberation movement; - A closer look at some of the most infamous NYC speakeasies, including Lansky's Lounge and Chumley's, larger dance halls like the Stork's Club or 300 Club, and secret beer caves in the Bronx; - How speakeasies kept their operations hush-hush, from quietly transporting booze to their bars, to escape routes and tunnels, to tricks they used to hide their illicit operations in case they were raided. Q&A will follow.

Opera | Met Opera: Bizet's Carmen (virtual)


Richard Eyre's stunning new production of Bizet's opera was the talk of the town when it was unveiled on New Year's Eve 2009. Elina Garanca leads the cast as the iconic gypsy of the title--a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don Jose, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Teddy Tahu Rhodes) piques Carmen's interest. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by rising maestro Yannick Nezet-Seguin, this Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet's tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax.

Staged Reading | Tennessee Williams's The Night of the Iguana with Golden Globe and Tony Winners (virtual)


In Tennessee Williams's The Night of the Iguana, a defrocked clergyman encounters inside disturbances amid outside disturbances during one stormy night at the Costa Verde Hotel in Acapulco as the world prepares for World War II. After four women of different ages and backgrounds, along with a 97-year-old poet, engage in the clergyman's spiritual struggles, their lives leap dramatically forward. And the catalytic, defrocked clergyman makes it through the night. Directed by Emily Mann.

Park Walk | Foraging Tour: Sechuan Pepper, Ginkgo Trees, Black Nuts, American Persimmon and More (in-person)


A great abundance of edible and medicinal wild plants and mushrooms makes this park a great place for foraging in the fall: burdock, an expensive detoxifying herb sold in health food stores; the root of sassafras, which tastes like root beer, makes a great tea, as well as root beer; chickweed, which tastes like corn; the American persimmon, with a sweet fruit that gets better as it gets uglier! Nuts of the ginkgo tree will be at their peak. Pear-shaped puffballs, blewits, brick tops, enokis, oyster mushrooms, and tree ear mushrooms could pop up anywhere. The tour will last for about 4 hours. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.

Organist Nicolas Haigh plays Messiaen's masterful cycle. Arguably the most distinctive and progressive voice in twentieth-century French music, and certainly the most significant organist-composer since Bach, Olivier Messiaen is best known for his cycle of nine pieces entitled La Nativite du Seigneur (The Birth of the Saviour). Written in 1935, the music speaks directly of the joy, peace and wonder of Christmas.

Discussion | Six Feet Apart but Still Together: Photographer Talks About His Work (virtual)


Among many other projects, Paul A. Davies, a long time resident of the Lower East Side, has recently been working on photographs of the East Village's streets during pandemic. He will show the audience his work, discuss the process and inspirations, and answer questions. "As a photographer, I am always drawn to the street as a place to capture the mood of the moment. I have never experienced a year like this one. Besides the huge impact of Covid of life on the streets, we have witnessed activities relating to the Black Lives Matter movement, the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, climate change, the Presidential Election campaigns and the associated vote drive. As well as providing the stage for activities, the streets participate, observe and comment on these societal changes through posters, murals, graffiti and signage. These are the cave paintings of our modern society. At some point the cave paintings will fade away or be covered by new ones, the plywood palaces where we sit bravely grabbing a meal or a drink will be disassembled and the small circle on the floor of the post office where we stand patiently waiting in line to buy a stamp will be a distant memory. Until then we stand six feet apart but still together" - Paul Adrian Davies.

Park Walk | Foraging Tour: Red Berries, Kentucky Coffee Tree, Japanese Mushrooms, Black Walnuts (in-person)


Thanks to its varied habitats and combination of native and introduced species, this world-famous park is a great place for edible and medicinal wild plants and mushrooms in late fall. Herbs, greens, fruits, nuts, and mushrooms will all be in season simultaneously. Tart crab apples will be everywhere, and they're ripe only now, when they appear rotten. Another lemony-flavored fruit is the linden viburnum, a shrub with clusters of red berries that taste like a combination of lemon and raspberry. Another great fruit that is only good at the end of the season, and when it also looks rotten, is the American persimmon. Another "fruit" is the pod of the Kentucky coffee tree whose seeds make great-tasting caffeine-free coffee. You will also find burdock, one of the tastiest and most healthful root vegetables. While most nut trees are already out of season, ginkgo trees will be at their peak as well as the black walnuts. Given enough rain beforehand, you'll find gourmet oyster mushrooms, brick tops, pear-shaped puffballs, and Japanese enoki mushrooms. The tour will last for about 4 hours. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.

Concert | Tribute to Oscar and Tony-Winning Broadway Composer of Godspell, Pippin, Wicked (virtual)


This concert-lecture will feature Broadway actress Nikki Renee Daniels (Company, Hamilton, The Book of Mormon, Porgy and Bess) and the acclaimed jazz vocalist Gabrielle Stravelli, who the New York Times compares to "Ella Fitzgerald in her prime." At a time when Broadway and pop music had taken separate paths, Stephen Schwartz (b. 1948) successfully introduced the pop/rock musical sensibility of the 1970s to musical theater. After early success on Broadway with Godspell and Pippin, he reinvented himself in Hollywood, collaborating with Alan Menken on the music for 1990s Disney classics including Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Schwartz and Jerry Herman are the only two composers to have three shows run for more than 1,500 performances. Learn about his inspiring story and hear music spanning his entire career - including songs from his smash hit Wicked. Music directed by Greg Jarrett.

Slide Lecture | Monuments, Memory, and the Art of Indigenous History (virtual)


Native Studies scholar Shari Huhndorf presents Monuments, Memory, and the Art of Indigenous History. U.S. monuments, including those of U.S. presidents, create celebratory national narratives premised on Indigenous erasure, the obliteration from national memory of violent conquest in the past as well as ongoing Indigenous presence. After exploring this history, Shari Huhndorf will consider how Native artists revise official histories to counter Indigenous erasure and assert contemporary claims in the context of such recent events as the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. Contests over the meaning of the past, as these artworks reveal, are also contests over land and political power in the present. Shari M. Huhndorf is Professor of Native American Studies in the Department of Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley. She is the author of Going Native: Indians in the American Cultural Imagination and Mapping the Americas: The Transnational Politics of Contemporary Native Culture.

Classical Music | Vivaldi's The Four Seasons by The National Philharmonic (virtual)


The National Philharmonic; Piotr Gajewski, conductor; Laura Colgate, violin Antonio Vivaldi's beloved classic, The Four Seasons, is presented in its entirety. The inspiration for the work came from a set of four anonymous sonnets, one for each season, from which Vivaldi took descriptive phrases to direct the development of musical ideas. This makes the concertos an early form of program music, creating stories without words.

Slide Lecture | Fanny Brice - The Consummate Performer! (virtual)


You may remember Fanny Brice as the creator and star of the top-rated radio comedy series The Baby Snooks Show, or you may know her only from Barbara Streisand’s portrayal in “Funny Girl”, but she was a popular and influential American comedienne, singer, theatre and film actress, who made many stage, radio and film appearances. She could do it all: sing, dance, act, and most especially make you laugh. Fanny started in burlesque and wound up as one of the most famous performers of her time. Despite her efforts to succeed as a serious actress and singer, Brice –who spoke no Yiddish – rose to stardom performing comedy with a Yiddish accent. Telling the tale of this storied woman will be historian Dr. Sharon Keller.

Bruce Davidson: Outsider on the Inside brings together more than a hundred photographs by legendary Magnum Photos member, Bruce Davidson. Ranging from study prints to rare vintage items, the exhibited works showcase Davidson’s singular ability to chronicle unmediated instances of candor and emotion activated by New York urban space. Throughout his career, Davidson has used his camera to record the stories of communities at the periphery of mainstream society. In the historic Brooklyn Gang (1959), East 100th Street (1970), Subway (1980) and Central Park (1995) photo-essays, the American photographer demonstrates his readiness to shape behind-the-lens relationships with his subjects into unapologetically honest depictions of human nature.
