What to Do/See/Hear | March 21-27

"Cleopatra" by Cagnacci

Repeat after us: Pay no attention to the falling snow. It’s spring. It’s really spring. Whatever Mother Nature’s capricious weather, there are still plenty of great reasons to get out of the house this week for great arts offerings. In particular, although Holy Week doesn’t start until Sunday, Easter-themed programs are popping up like daffodils.

What to Do/See/Hear | March 14-20

However one looks at it, this is a week of transition: Winter is fading but hasn’t completely surrendered. Daylight saving time has begun, returning our early mornings to darkness.

It might prove a little more difficult to focus in coming weeks. The daffodils already are opening, and daylight saving time will give us an extra hour of evening light.

What to Do/Hear/See | Jan. 24-30

The spectrum is overflowing this week, to mix my metaphors. From the history of Jews in China to live cinema, from an operatic superstar to a masterpiece of 20th century orchestral music and the minting of a brand new art gallery, there is no excuse for sitting on your couch in the days to come. Don’t succumb! Explore!

What to Do/See/Hear | Oct. 25-31

If this week’s wet, chilly weather has you thinking that you’d like to curl up with a good book, or at least hear about one, you’re in luck. The word is center stage this week at several events around town. Plus, Music Hall’s reopening will move en pointe, but still with a literary theme.
