An immersive exhibition of more than 100 works of stained glass, compositions in lead, and related drawings will showcase British artist Brian Clarke as one of the most important artists working in stained glass, at once a leader in new technology and a brilliant aesthetic innovator. Since the early 1970s, Clarke has collaborated with some of the world’s most prominent architects to create stained-glass designs and installations for hundreds of projects worldwide. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be more than twenty free-standing, glass screens. Animated by changing light and stained with exuberant, saturated colors, these dramatic works will transport audiences to the very frontier of what is possible in stained glass today.

MAD’s updated hours are:
Thursday – Sunday, 11:00am–7:00pm
11:00am–noon on Thursday and Friday are special hours for Members and seniors 65 and up

I grew up in a village on the Erie Canal east of Rochester. Everyone was white. The first Black person I met was Terry, who joined my third-grade class when his family worked on a local farm during harvest season. We became friends but he did not stay long. Migrant workers must follow the crops. A decade later, I met a second Black person. Priscilla was my freshman roommate at SUNY Albany. We became friends, too, but grew apart after that first year. Now that I am much older, and challenged by the work of anti-racism, I wonder about them. How did they navigate the mostly white spaces where I met them? Did I fail them? How do I confront white supremacy, in all its blatant and subtle forms, today?

Anne Klaeysen is Leader Emerita of the New York Society for Ethical Culture, Humanist Chaplain at New York University, and Ethical Humanist Religious Life Adviser at Columbia University. She serves on the boards of the Ethical Culture Fieldston Schools and The Encampment for Citizenship. Anne holds a Doctor of Ministry degree in pastoral care and counseling from Hebrew Union College.

The Metropolitan Opera

During this extraordinary and difficult time, the Met hopes to brighten the lives of our audience members even while our stage is dark. Each day, a different encore presentation from the company’s Live in HD series is being made available for free streaming on the Met website, with each performance available for a period of 23 hours, from 7:30 p.m. EDT until 6:30 p.m. the following day. The schedule will include outstanding complete performances from the past 14 years of cinema transmissions, starring all of opera’s greatest singers. The streams are also available through the Met Opera on Demand apps for Apple, Amazon, and Roku devices and Samsung Smart TV. To access them without logging in, click “Browse and Preview” in the apps for connected TV, and “Explore the App” on tablets and mobile devices.

Otto Schenk’s storybook production perfectly captures the fairy-tale world of Dvořák’s supremely romantic opera. Star soprano Renée Fleming, in one of her most acclaimed portrayals, takes on the title role of the water nymph who longs to be human, opposite Piotr Beczała as the Prince, the object of her affection. John Relyea is the Water Gnome, Dolora Zajick sings the witch Ježibaba, and Emily Magee is the Foreign Princess. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts.

Lincoln Center at Home

William Christie and Les Arts Florissants present the virtual premiere of the Orchestra’s performance of Haydn’s Symphony No. 87, the last of his six so-called Paris symphonies. One of the world’s most respected music ensembles, Les Arts Florissants was founded by William Christie in 1979 and has been hailed for its revitalization and performance of Baroque music, in particular French repertoire. The concert was recorded on October 27 at the Philharmonie de Paris and the 30-minute film includes a short introduction by William Christie and first violinist Hiro Kurosaki. It will be available for streaming for three months on Lincoln Center at Home, Lincoln Center’s Facebook Page, and on Les Arts Florissants’ website and social media platforms. Over three seasons starting in 2019, Christie and Les Arts Florissants intended to explore these inventive symphonies—composed when Haydn was at the height of his powers—along with concerti performed by some of today’s young virtuoso instrumental and vocal soloists. When the pandemic changed their planned October 2020 performances in Paris and in New York at Lincoln Center, the ensemble made a video recording of Symphony No. 87, which would have been performed as part of their Lincoln Center concert.
