February 2. Part of the 23Arts Initiative's Jazz in the Snow 2018 series, "Cupid Painted Blind" takes its title from a line in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer's Night's Dream" ("And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind."). Staged at Mountain Top Library and starring soprano and Bard College faculty member Meredith Lustig (accompanied by vocalist and narrator Michael Axtell and pianist Steven Feifke), this theatrical love story draws from Shakespeare's timeless texts and "follows two people grappling with the idea of love, discovering each other but also themselves." Musical selections include pieces by Gershwin, Bernstein, Ellington, Korngold, and others. Just in time for Valentine's Day! ("One Love: Jazz Through the Islands" floats in February 23; "The Lost Women of Song" is found March 2.) 7pm. $10 donation. Tannersville. (518) 589-5705.
