    “Jane Austen was a radical,” writes Lost Nation Theater producing artistic director Kathleen Keenan in a press release for the Montpelier theater company’s production of Pride and Prejudice. “The fact that she wrote these stories, that they were completely from the feminine perspective … was radical.” For the final show of its 2019 season, LNT stages Austen’s beloved tale of the strong-willed Lizzy Bennet and the wealthy and enigmatic Mr. Darcy. Keenan directs a cast of Vermont and New York City actors in Kate Hamill’s lively theatrical adaptation that the Wall Street Journal says is “done over in the revved-up manner of a Hollywood screwball comedy.” at Lost Nation Theater, Montpelier City Hall in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map). $10-30.

    When Jarvis Antonio Green started JAG Productions in 2016, part of his mission was to incubate “new work that excites broad intellectual engagement.” To that end, the Upper Valley theater company commences its fourth season with the world premiere of a fantastical drama by Brooklyn-based playwright Nathan Yungerberg. Esai’s Table, presented in partnership with New York City’s Cherry Lane Theatre, follows three young black men as they brave a mythical sea voyage from atop a magical table. Starring Dimitri Carter, Cornelius Davidson, Marcus Gladney Jr. and Benton Greene, this imaginative theater work navigates subjects such as love, friendship, family and black lives. Catch preview performances on Thursday and Friday before opening night on Saturday. at Briggs Opera House in White River Junction. Upper Valley (map). $35.

    In July, jazz vocalist Veronica Swift performed “I’m Hip,” a song from her 2019 album Confessions, on WBGO’s “Singers Unlimited” alongside pianist Emmet Cohen. Video of the performance shows the 25-year-old chanteuse channeling the music not just through her voice but also her physical movements — think fluid hand gestures, subtle dance steps and rhythmic head bobs. In short, she’s feeling it. Swift shares her artistry with Upper Valley music fans in a concert at the First Congregational Church in Lebanon, N.H., presented by the Lebanon Opera House. Listeners can expect to hear bebop favorites and Great American Songbook classics. at First Congregational Church (Lebanon, N.H.) in Lebanon. Outside Vermont (map). $30.

    Most opera fans are familiar with The Magic Flute, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s whimsical masterpiece about a prince who, given an enchanted instrument, embarks on a quest to rescue his true love from evil forces.

(The Tsonga are a culturally related group of people who live in parts of Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa.) Audience members find the opera’s arias intact but, in an exciting twist, arranged for a trumpet player and marimba-based orchestra. at Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center for the Arts, Dartmouth College in Hanover.
