A case of mistaken identity leads to over-the-top antics in Ken Ludwig’s sidesplitting farce Lend Me a Tenor, staged by QNEK Productions. When a series of mishaps leads to world-famous singer Tito Merelli receiving a double dose of tranquilizer, an opera company assistant dons the crooner’s costume and passes himself off as the music man. Merelli emerges from his tranquilizer haze and, naturally, high jinks ensue. Under direction from Jenny Dunne, a cast of local talent opens the award-winning theater company’s 25th and final season with this madcap comedy that is sure to have audience members singing its praises.

Middlebury College students and music lovers at large celebrate the life and work of Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach during the 7th annual Middlebury Bach Festival. Opening the three-day affair are the award-winning Brentano String Quartet (pictured), who treat listeners to the German songsmith’s late work The Art of the Fugue. Notes carry across the Mead Memorial Chapel lawn during Saturday’s carillon recital by George Matthew Jr. That evening, festival co-organizer Jeffrey Buettner conducts the Bach Festival Orchestra and the Middlebury College Choir in George Frideric Handel’s oratorio Esther. Finally, players from previous years round out the weekend with a free chamber music concert on Sunday. Happy listening!

An antiques show, a parade and the yearly 8.5-mile Sap Run foot race round out the season’s sweetest soirée.

Vergennes’ Northern Daughters Gallery presents “Suspended Moments,” a selection of soft and fluttery abstract canvases by the Massachusetts-based painter. “I use mark-making to express the constantly moving, changing and morphing of life and nature,” Schmitz says, “leaving observers certain that they are witnessing merely a fleeting moment in time.” Characterized by a soft palette and a sense of gentle motion, this exhibition is just in time for spring.
