The Wizard of Oz was a technical marvel for the MGM studio in the late 1930s. MGM has stunningly re-mastered this timeless classic, and in this version, produced by John Goberman, the brilliantly restored images are accompanied by a the Boston Pops playing entirely new transcriptions of Harold Arlen's brilliant lost scores. Hearing Judy Garland's original 1939 vocals backed by lush, live orchestration, will transport children and adults alike. With this presentation of The Wizard of Oz on the big screen, moviegoers will be treated to the Oscar-winning film as it has never been experienced before.

My Life in Middlemarch

In author Rebecca Meads new book - a combination of biography, reporting, and memoir - she explores her relationship with George Eliot's Middlemarch. Mead was a young woman in an English coastal town when she first read Middlemarch, regarded by many as the greatest English novel, and one of Edith Whartons favorite novels. My Life in Middlemarch is both a fascinating reading of Eliot's biography and an exploration of the way aspects of Mead's life uncannily echo that of Eliot herself.

The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or emailinfo@edithwharton.org.

She has profiled many subjects, among them Lena Dunham, Christine Quinn, Santiago Calatrava, Nico Muhly, Slavoj Zizek, and Shaquille ONeal. She is also the author of One Perfect Day: The Selling of the American Wedding, and has written more than a hundred Talk of the Town stories.

Mahler's "Symphony No. 2"
Boston Symphony Orchestra Plays Mahler's Rousing Symphony No. 2

With its enormous opening instrumental energy followed by a quietly flowing middle section that builds to an epic choral finale, Mahler's Symphony No. 2 is one of the most powerful pieces of music ever written. Often referred to as "Resurrection Symphony," the journey is akin to an awakening such a phrase suggests. Renowned Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling joins Boston Symphony Orchestra as one of two soloists on the stirring conclusion, a passionate duet about the vanquishing of pain and death. Set in BSO's summer home at Tanglewood, arrive early at this one to enjoy an evening picnic on the magnificent grounds.
