CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. — Hubbard Hall Opera's artistic director knows audiences will flock to one of the company's August productions.   She hopes just as many people will discover the troupe's other offering.   Hubbard Hall Opera opens its seventh season on Wednesday evening with a pay-what-you-will performance of Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro."   Artistic Director Alexina Jones is confident the venue's patrons will be anxious to hear the operatic staple.   "We try to choose a classic and then a little bit of a lesser known work," Jones said of her programming choices for the 2014 season. "We did 'Cosi Fan Tutte'

LENOX, Mass. — We go to Tanglewood for the best music of the summer. Many listeners come with picnics in tow but our dining expectations for the prepared food Tanglewood offers may not be so high.

Time was, a local baker or caterer would be contracted to bake giant chocolate chip cookies for that summer. Or, big chocolate brownies another summer. That was when we were lucky.

Times have changed.

In addition to fine dining for donors at Seranak, on the hill overlooking Tanglewood; and fine dining, newly for the public this summer, at Highwood mansion, concertgoers may pre-order picnics-to-go. They can wander around and pick up grab-and-go sandwiches or salads or SoCo ice cream or

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Clark Art Institute's recent reopening brought its world-traveling collection back home.

But the Clark's international cred was firmly established long before that.

The Clark is one of the few art museums that serves as a leading international center for research and scholarships. The institution's research program and academic programs offer fellowships and conferences.

"In terms of art history and museum work, the Clark has been an international collaborator at least since the 1960s," said Assistant Deputy Director Thomas Loughman. "It has been central to our identity particularly for the past two decades."

And, in 2000,

BECKET, Mass. — Food trucks are everywhere — even here in the Berkshires.

Following Saturday's mini food truckfest at the Pittsfield Farmer's Market, a macrobiotic food truck is being featured at the 2014 Kushi Institute Summer Conference on Sunday, Aug. 10.

Hearty Eats from Shelburne Falls and created by Andrea Beaudoin, a recent Kushi graduate, will be parked at the first-ever Kushi free local Berkshire food and vendor fair Sunday from noon to 4.

The Kushi Institute calls itself "the leading macrobiotic educational center in the world" and that is probably true. The Kushi Foundation, of which the institute is a division, was founded by the late Michio Kushi

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Since he is a theater guy, it is not surprising that Eric Kerns evokes a playwright to explain the philosophy behind the Williamstown Theatre Festival's newest offering.   "Have you ever seen the movie 'State and Main' by David Mamet?" Kerns asked when talking about Sunday's concert at Cricket Creek Farm. "There is this great line where he says, 'When you live in a small town, you have to make your own fun.' And she says, 'If you don't make it yourself, it's not fun. It's entertainment.'   "We like to to think we do both here."   WTF, which has been entertaining summer audiences

LENOX, Mass. — Tanglewood is home to some of the region's best classical fare — and not only the musical kind.

The summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra is inviting locavores to the 10th annual Tanglewood Wine & Food Classic's Berkshire Night, featuring "local chefs, libations, meats, breads and farms."

Happening a few weeks earlier than usual, the event starts off Thursday night with the Best of the Berkshires cocktail reception and Berkshire Night dinner — four Berkshire fine dining chefs, front and center. Three Berkshirites will present seminars throughout the weekend. Berkshire food and beverage businesses will take part in Saturday's

How did I get 39 years into life without knowing the story of "Hairspray"?

I'm glad Noelle only had to go eight and a half, and I'm glad her first experience with it was Barrington Stage Company's Youth Theatre production of "Hairspray Jr."

Based on the film and Tony Award-winning stage musical of the same name, "Hairspray Jr." features the popular songs “You Can’t Stop the Beat” and “Good Morning Baltimore.” Filled with energetic dance numbers and unique characters, "Hairspray Jr." follows spunky plus-sized teen Tracy Turnblad as she pursues her dream of dancing on national television and navigates the

The summer music festival season shifts into high gear this week, with concerts in venues across the region.

Although there’s diversity in programming, the common denominator this week is on the mainstream classical masterpieces, with three star power all-Brahms and all-Tchaikovsky programs at Tanglewood, Beethoven and Schumann at Music and More, and Mendelssohn at the Manchester Music Festival.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Call it the Clark Art Institute Phase 2.1.   The original plan for the museum's expansion called for a grand opening that featured two exhibits in the Clark's new special exhibition spaces along with renovated and improved gallery spaces devoted to 19th century and Old Masters paintings and the decorative arts.   That plan got scaled back when the Clark and the National Gallery of Art decided to delay the opening of a traveling exhibit of abstract expressionism.   On Saturday, the new Clark finally presents "Make It New: Abstract Paintings from the National Gallery of Art, 1950-1975."   Last month's opening of the rest of
