The Met: Live in HD will resume at Guild Hall at noon on Saturday with Alexander Borodin’s epic “Prince Igor.” Famous for its Polovtsian dances, the opera is being staged at the Met for the first time in almost 100 years. Dmitri Tcherniakov’s new production is a psychological journey through the mind of its protagonist, played by Ildar Abdrazakov, with the founding of Russia as its backdrop. Tickets to the four-and-a-half-hour program are $22, $20 for members, $15 for students.
“Speaking Shakespeare: A Classical Acting Class,” an eight-week workshop to be held at Guild Hall beginning Monday and continuing on Monday evenings from 6 to 9 through April 21, will offer instruction to students ages 16 and up in sonnets, monologues, mask work, and scene work. Presented in partnership with the Round Table Theatre Company and Academy, the class will culminate in a performance onstage at the John Drew Theater on April 23.
Morgan and Tristan Vaughan, the instructors, who hold M.F.A.s in classical acting from the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting at George Washington University, have also studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and the Circle in the Square School in Manhattan. The fee for the workshop is $300, $275 for Guild Hall members.
Capping a busy week, on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. the John Drew Theater Lab will present a staged reading of Brian Sutow’s play “The Personal(s).” Based on the 1996 Dutch film “Blind Date” and the American remake by Stanley Tucci, the play follows a husband and wife, estranged after a tragedy, on a series of blind dates with each other. The free program is directed by Isaac Klein and features Josh Gladstone, Kate Mueth, and Trevor Vaughn.
