Most events are expensive but the live broadcasts of opera and theater are affordable. Beautiful old theater.

The Mahaiwe is an historic theater built in 1905, with proscenium, wings, box seats, balcony, etc. It was beautifully restored about 6 years ago. Music, dance, theater, opera and classic movies are presented. I saw a holiday showing of "It's a Wonderful Life" just before Christmas, and in keeping with the season, and the theme of the movie it was free! Performers ranging from Lyle Lovette to Mavis Staples to the Blind Boys of Alabama and the Metropolitan Opera "Live in HD" are just a sampling.

Saw the Moscow Ballet perform The Nutcracker. Small production, but lots of fun. Theater is a gem, but it was very hot.
