There’s so much going on in mid-July in the greater Berkshire region in theater, music, performance and art, we can only touch briefly upon a few highlights. Here they are:
World-renowned soprano Renée Fleming stars in the world premiere of Joe DiPietro’s “Living on Love,” based on the play “Peccadillo” by Garson Kanin, at Williamstown Theatre Festival, running on the Main Stage now through Saturday, July 26.
This weekend in the greater Berkshire region you can hear a string quartet, a jazz quintet, a world-pop ensemble, a retro-funk outfit, art songs, and a Brahms symphony, among many other cultural attractions.
Plume Giant, the Brooklyn-based chamber-folk trio that favors pop melodies, a miniature orchestra of sounds and textures, and Beatlesque whimsy, performs in Club B-10 at MASS MoCA in North Adams on Saturday, at 8 p.m. The group’s eclectic approach has drawn comparisons to Bowerbirds, Dirty Projectors, Sea Wolf, and Dan Hicks.
