Park Walk | Foraging Tour: Wineberries, Kentucky Coffee Trees, and More


Because this park includes so many varied habitats, it's loaded with shoots and greens in early summer, and many of these renewable resources are edible and medicinal. You'll find spicy hedge mustar, poor man's pepper greens, celery-, parsley-, and carrot-flavored goutweed, violet leaves and flowers. You'll encounter Kentucky coffee trees, with seeds you can use to make the world's best caffeine-free coffee substitute, as well as for seasoning hot chocolate, chocolate pudding, and chocolate truffles.  The wineberry: this invasive Asian species of raspberry, which grows in thickets, is way better than any store-bought raspberry. Further on, you'll see poison ivy and by the end of the tour, everyone will be able to recognize it instantly. You'll also find jewelweed, which prevents poison ivy rash if applied after contact, and also cures mosquito bites and insect stings. The tour will last for about 4 hours.

Dance Performance | Sanctuary: Site-Specific Dance Performance


Lindsey Hanson’s site-specific and multimedia dance piece activates the modern architecture of her church with dancers from Lindsey Hanson Collective performing amid, over and sometimes under the pews. The dance piece explores themes of connection and perspective, and the slow or sudden ways both can shift. After a year of us practicing physical distance due to the pandemic, Sanctuary invites us to consider how we engage with the spaces around us and how we interact with one another. Through dance, Sanctuary suggests the new life that can invigorate a worship space and the ways we can connect with spirituality. Note: this is a two-part multidisciplinary arts experience that involves the audience walking around, sitting and standing, and going up and down stairs.

Opera | Met Opera: Strauss' Arabella (virtual, streaming for 23 hrs)


Otto Schenk's opulent production, conducted masterfully by Christian Thielemann, provides a perfect setting for Strauss' bittersweet comedy of true love and mistaken identity. The great Kiri Te Kanawa is radiant as Arabella, the daughter of an impoverished aristocrat who must marry a wealthy man to save her family. Wolfgang Brendel sings Mandryka, the landowner from the provinces who wins her over with his honesty and genuine charm in the midst of Viennese society. Marie McLaughlin is Zdenka, Arabella's younger sister, whose well-meaning actions cause all kinds of misunderstandings, and David Kuebler sings Matteo, Arabella's suitor, who realizes he is really in love with Zdenka. Helga Dernesch and Donald McIntyre are Arabella's parents, the Count and Countess Waldner, and Natalie Dessay sings the Fiakermilli. A recording from 1994. Arabella was first performed in 1933 at the Dresden Sachsisches Staatstheater. It received its premiere in the UK in 1934 at London's Royal Opera House. Two decades later, in 1955, it was performed at the Metropolitan Opera with Eleanor Steber in the title role.
