Our guide to the city’s best classical music and opera happening this weekend and in the week ahead.
‘THE BLACK CLOWN’ at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater (July 24-27, 7:30 p.m.). Langston Hughes’s 1931 poem is brought to musical life in this setting by the baritone Davóne Tines and the composer Michael Schachter, combining opera and jazz, spiritual and vaudeville. Directed by Zack Winokur, the piece features choreography by Chanel DaSilva and music supervision by Jaret Landon.
BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA at Tanglewood in Lenox, Mass. (July 19-20 and 23-24, 8 p.m.; July 21, 2:30 p.m.). One of the busiest weeks of the summer in the Berkshires starts with a mostly French program on Friday, with Gautier Capuçon as the soloist in Saint-Saëns’s Cello Concerto No. 1, and includes a French pianist, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, in a starring role on Sunday, playing both Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F and his “Variations on ‘I Got Rhythm.’” In between, on Saturday, comes one of two major premieres: the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts’s “The Brightness of Light,” a setting of letters between Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz that has been written for the singers Renée Fleming and Rod Gilfry. Andris Nelsons conducts all that, and has a hand in the fireworks and festivities of Tanglewood on Parade, on Tuesday. And Fleming returns on Wednesday for the second premiere, “Penelope,” a collaboration between Tom Stoppard and the late André Previn. Fleming is joined by the Emerson String Quartet, the pianist Simone Dinnerstein and the actress Uma Thurman.
