The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess at TSL, Feb 15, Mar 1

Screen Shot 2020-02-05 at 8.15.52 PM

Met Opera HD Live: The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess at TSL in Hudson. This Sunday’s showing has already sold out but there are two encore performances coming up on February 15 and March 1.

The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess returns to the Met for the first time since 1990, in a new production directed by James Robinson in his company debut. America’s “folk opera,” as the 1935 creators described it, tells the story of disabled beggar Porgy, sung by Eric Owens, and his love for the drug-addicted Bess, portrayed by Angel Blue.

David Robertson conducts a stellar cast that also includes Donovan Singletary as fisherman Jake, Golda Schultz as his wife Clara, Latonia Moore as the bereaved widow Serena, Frederick Ballentine as drug dealer Sportin’ Life, Alfred Walker as the brutal stevedore Crown, and Denyce Graves as Maria, town matriarch and operator of the local cook-shop. Infused with the timeless melodies of the much-loved classics “Summertime,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” “Bess, You Is My Woman Now,” “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin,” and “My Man’s Gone Now,” the new co-production with English National Opera and Dutch National Opera was hailed as a triumph at its premiere in London earlier this year.

Free Escape Room Adventure at Hudson Area Library, Oct 14

The Hudson Area Library is hosting a Free Escape Room Adventure on Monday, October 14th. After the immense popularity of the Hudson Area Library Tween Advisory Council’s escape room escapade this past June, Altered Zone NY, the council will host another opportunity for members of the community to get in on the “getting-out” fun.

The year is 2100, and the world is left reeling after a suspicious spacecraft appears in the sky over Hudson, NY. A team is chosen to make first contact, and to craft a peace treaty with the “Visitors.” Unfortunately, due to a mistranslation during talks, the team is imprisoned and now war with the Visitors is imminent! Trapped in an alien crater, the team has only 15 minutes to escape, fix their mistake, and warn everyone before the attacks start. The fate of mankind rests on THEIR shoulders.

The game is limited to 15 minutes, and the team that has the shortest time will win a special prize.

The Hudson Area Library Tween Advisory Council is composed of youth ages 8-12 who create and host library events for their peers and community.

Monday, October 14, 2019 / 11am – 3pm
