The Met: Live in HD will present Gaetano Donizetti’s “Roberto Devereux” on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Guild Hall. First performed in Naples in 1837, the opera is based on a historical incident, the execution for treason of Robert Devereux, the favorite of Queen Elizabeth I.

Sondra Radvanovsky has undertaken the challenge of singing all three of Donizetti’s Tudor queens — Anne Boleyn, Mary Stuart, and Elizabeth — in the course of a single Met season. Sir David McVicar staged all three productions. Tickets are $22, $20 for members, $15 for students.

A free program of readings, short films, an exhibition, and a multimedia performance will introduce Guild Hall’s first five artists in residence on Sunday at 4 p.m. in the John Drew Theater. The artists are Arcmanoro Niles, a painter; Iris Smyles, a writer; Tom Yuill a poet, and Jennifer Hsu and James Wang, multimedia artists.

Also on Sunday, the museum’s “Table Talk” series will feature Ralph Lerner, a noted attorney and art advisor, who will discuss general estate-planning issues and matters of specific concern to artists at 11 a.m. Refreshments will be provided.
