Tanglewood enters its second week, and the highlights are many; indeed, every concert will be memorable.
Two examples: The Boston Symphony, led by maestro Andris Nelson, who will be joined by an outstanding assemblage of operatic superstars, performs Giuseppe Verdi's magisterial Requiem, and the Tanglewood Music Center Orchesta (TMCO) showcases Tchaikovsky's fatalistic Symphony No. 6 ("Pathétique"). Symphonies by Copland (no. 3) and Beethoven (no. 4) will also be heard on consecutive dates, along with an all-Bach solo violin recital by the electrifying virtuosa Hillary Hahn.

Don't miss out on the captivating Sevenars Chamber Music Festival, located in South

The story of Stephen Sondheim's "Into The Woods" only appears to be over at end of the first act of this farcical and entertaining mash-up made from four Brothers Grimm fairy tales. While everyone is about to live happily ever after, Act I is really a foreshadowing of the pay-back set forth Act II.

Bring your mind as well as your sense of humor to Barrington Stage's fine production of this musical theater classic.

As the show begins, The Baker (Jonathan Raviv) and his Wife (Mara Davi) are on a quest. They desperately want a child but are unable to conceive. The Witch (Mykal Kilgore) has cursed them, and to undo it, she demands four items: a cow as white as milk from

I'd be impressed if I learned that a history prof in some U.S. university was showing his class director Jim Jarmusch's zombie/horror/comedy "The Dead Don't Die" as an instructive metaphor for the zombies down in Foggy Bottom. It might be a stretch, but then again, c'mon.   Possessed of no morality and dedicated only to their perverse survival, the sudden infestation of the undead in previously peaceful, Centerville, Pennsylvania, is fraught with tidbits of parodic wit, the satire there for all who are willing to recognize the real horror that threatens us.   In his latest example of off-the-hook, avant-garde filmmaking, wherein he pays tongue-in-cheek

Dan Wolf manipulated negatives to create creepy to horrific artworks. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Berkshire Art Museum opens its sixth season by dipping into dark matter — art that's slightly twisted, disturbing, tortured, sorrowful, disastrous and, well, dark.    That's the theme running through "Not Just Another Pretty Picture," a group exhibit that opens on Thursday at 6 p.m. during the first DownStreet Art of the season.     "I like to do shows that I can relate to and also I feel that maybe are a little bit underrepresented in galleries," said museum founder Eric Rudd. "Gallery dealers will tell you what sells are
