This is Week in the Arts—a curation of virtual events, exhibits and reopenings around the Roaring Fork Valley.

Theatre Aspen kicks off its summer season at the Hurst Theatre in Aspen’s John Denver Sanctuary this week, with Broadway star Beth Malone on Monday, and the theatre company’s cabaret series on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. 

Aspen Words hosts a Q and A session with Christy Lefteri, its Literary Prize winner and the author of this summer’s community read, “The Beekeeper of Aleppo,” on Thursday. The event will be held online.

Snowmass’s Power of Four 50k and 25k trails runs are happening this weekend. 50k runners will traverse all four ski areas starting at Aspen Mountain on Saturday. 25k runners will start at the base of Tiehack on Sunday. Both groups will finish at Snowmass Village.
