THE MET LIVE IN HD: AKHNATEN

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 12:55 PM
Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s modern masterpieces, with star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo as the revolutionary title ruler who transformed ancient Egypt. Costanzo performed live at the Clark in August as a part of the American Modern Opera Company. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott offers an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN:
VAN GOGH & JAPAN

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2 PM
“I envy the Japanese,” Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based—Van Gogh & Japan at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam—one can see why. Though van Gogh never visited Japan, it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. The film travels to France, the Netherlands, and Japan to explore the heritage that made van Gogh the artist we know today.
