First appearing on The Great White Way in 1966, Cabaret is based on writer Christopher Isherwood's time in the bohemian clubs of Berlin in the early 1930s. With decadence and sexual exploration being the first orders of business, Caberet tells the story of one Sally Bowles, a daring femme fatale in training, and her new roommate, the shy runaway Cliff. On a mission to experi- ence every sight and sound, Cliff follows Sally to the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy under- ground cabaret club presided over by the all-knowing Emcee. But whilst the night goes on forever inside, the music is not loud enough to cover the ever growing voice of fascism, as Nazi ideals seep into the city, and eventually the club itself. This wildly entertaining musical thrills easily, as the narrative takes on ever more terrifying subject matter. Cabaret is an absolute must see!

Whether copying or choosing motifs to reinterpret, jewel- ers have always looked to the past for inspiration. The practice became popular in the 19th century, as design- ers like Castellani, Giacinto Melillo, and Eugene Fontenay began reviving examples of ancient ornaments, newly unearthed in archaeological excava- tions. Examine more than 4,000 years of jewelry history through about 70 objects -- both ancient and revival -- tracing the revival movement from the 19th to the 21st centuries. The exhibition focuses on four types -- Archaeological, Classical, Egyptian, and Renaissance. Highlights include a 1924 brooch, on loan from Cartier, paired with an Egyp- tian winged scarab (740-660 BC) with a similar design; an 1850s embellished gold brooch by Caste!!an!; a Renais- sance revival neck ornament (1900-04) designed for Tiffany & Co.; a 1980s Bulgar! necklace adorned with Macedo- nian coins; and a 2002 Akelo pendant that emulates an ancient Etruscan granulation technique. MICHELE & DONALD D'AMOUR MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS 220 State Street, Springfield, MA 413-263-6800 www.SptingfieldMuseums.org THE GRAND TOUR: GEORGE AND BELLE SMITH COLLECT IN ITALY. Avid art collectors, George and Belle Smith traveled to Europe in 1882, just after promising their art collection to the city of Springfield, Massachusetts. The couple had planned a two-year sojourn to study and collect fine and decorative arts. Many socialites and intellects participated in the Grand Tour of Europe, a favorite activity for English and American aristocrats beginning in the late 17th century through the Vic- torian era. Because the Smiths enjoyed the opportunities available to them in Europe, they extended their visit by almost four years. For two-and-a-half years, the Smiths lived in Venice, Italy, and the couple purchased the paintings on display in this gallery and the lobby during that time, including works by No6 Bordignon, Raffaele Mainella, Pietro Pajetta, Pasquale Ruggiero and Ettore Tito. THE NICHOLS HOUSE MUSEUM 55 Mount Vernon Street Beacon Hill, Boston, MA 617-227-6993 www.NicholsHouseMuseum.org The Nichols House Museum is located at 55 Mount Vernon Street on Beacon Hill in Boston, Massachusetts. The house in which it is located was designed by the architect Charles Bulfinch, and built by Jonathan Mason, the politician, in 1804. The building was renovated in 1830. The museum is named for Rose Standish Nichols {1872-1960), the re- nowned landscape gardener, suffragist, pacifist, and member of the Cornish Art Colony, who lived in the house between 1885 and 1960. She left the house to be used as a museum after her death. The museum preserves the lifestyle of the American upper class during Nich- ols' lifetime, with turn-of-the-century period rooms.
