Lincoln Center Local (Recorded Event)
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Show Boat:  Based on a bestselling novel by Edna Ferber, Show Boat tells the 40-year story of the lives of performers, stagehands, and dock workers who are the denizens of the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat. The New Yorker noted that the show “was a radical departure in musical storytelling, marrying spectacle with seriousness,” moving beyond the light and airy plots of previous operettas and musical comedies with its serious subjects of racial prejudice and tragic love. Highlights include “Ol’ Man River,” “Make Believe,” and “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.” Broadway’s most revived and revised work, Show Boat was the first musical ever performed by an opera company — by New York City Opera in 1954. Recent productions have garnered the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical (1995) and the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival (1991).

This program contains language or scenes that some may find objectionable. Viewer discretion is advised.  (Recorded November 5, 2014)

Great Decisions: Saudi Arabia in Transition
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

As Saudi Arabia struggles to adjust to the drastic decline in oil revenue, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman attempts to boldly transform the country and shift more power to the younger generation.  At the same time, many countries point out the lack of democracy, women's rights and human rights in Saudi Arabia, and blame its promotion of Wahhabism, an extremely conservative version of Islam, for creating jihadists.  Discussion of US-Saudi relations facilitated by Jim Ketterer, Director of Bard Globalization and International Affairs program and Dean of International Studies at Bard College.
