Bolshoi’s Ballets, Women on Board, Bike Social Hour and More Events Around Boston
Spring is around the corner and March is going to be a busy month. Make the time to recharge and find inspiration at some of these upcoming events:
Bolshoi Postmodern – March 3 till March 6
“My whole life has been pledged to this meeting with you…” is one of the famous lines in Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin. If that makes your knees weak and if you want to immerse yourself even more in the world of 19th century Russia, stop by the MFA in March for the upcoming dance and opera screenings of Bolshoi Postmodern. The opening night will present The Bolt and Flames of Paris, a ballet about two lovers during the French Revolution. The series also features the opera Eugene Onegin and the opera Wozzeck that the MFA reports “was banned by the Nazis for its anti-militarism and social commentary.”
Drew Daywalt at Cambridge Public Library – March 5
Don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for an excuse to visit the Cambridge Public Library. It’s one of the nicest and most modern libraries around town, whether you are lounging on a bench outside the building or flipping through some books from the inside. Anyway, Drew Daywalt’s visit at the CPL offers a great excuse for roaming around the space. Come by to meet the author of the #1 blockbuster bestseller, The Day the Crayons Quit, and see what he has to share.
Did you know that March 8th is International Women’s Day? It was first observed in New York in recognition of the labour movement and in protest of hostile work conditions. So what a better way to celebrate this day than promote leadership amongst women? Join Jill Greenthal, a board member at Akamai and senior advisor in private equity at the Blackstone Group, for a fireside discussion on how to prepare yourself for board positions, interviews and discussions.
Bike Talk Social Hour – March 16
I recently learned about the recurring Bike Talk Social events and remember the excitement I felt at knowing such gatherings exist in Somerville. The next one is coming up on March 16th and will take place in Aeronaut, one of coolest spaces to mingle and enjoy a good beer. Come by to hear reverend Laura Everett, a Bostonian, bike commuter and pastor, give a presentation about the The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels.
David Cross: Making America Great Again – March 29
Remember the flamboyant Tobias Fünke of Arrested Development? How about Master Crane from the Kung Fu Panda film franchise? It’s time you gave in to the charm of the man who made these (and many more) shows and movies fun and successful: the stand-up comedian and performer David Cross. David will present Making America Great Again at the Wilbur Theater on March 27th and March 29th, so grab your tickets immediately for a good laugh.
Which one of these events will you attend? What other adventures are you interested in adding to your social calendar?
