Other notable names this season include the Metropolitan Opera’s Peter Gelb, and noted art historian Simon Schama, who is this year’s Esther Elson Memorial Lecture on Art. New this year, the Four Arts presents a documentary film series that includes a Q&A with special guests from the films being shown.
