Look on the bright side! Early signs point to actual artists reclaiming condo theme park Williamsburg as hipsters move back in with their parents: Brilliant abstract painter Eleanna Anagnos opens a show at Cameo, a new gallery on North Sixth Street—currently home to burlesque and American Apparel. Expect unshaven M.F.A. candidates. (Now that capitalism is dead, we may have to suck it up and flirt with a trust-funder!) And in cultural happenings further uptown, New York City Opera holds a symposium on Samuel Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra—which was first performed in 1966 at Lincoln Center—featuring actors, singers, art historians and, naturally, Egyptologists! (Say, here’s a career change we haven’t yet considered!)

[Eleanna Anagnos at Cameo, 93 North Sixth Street, opening 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., 718-302-1180; Antony and Cleopatra Symposium, Miller Theatre at Columbia University, 2960 Broadway, www.millertheatre.com]
