Romeo & Juliet: Valentine’s Revisited
Join us for an exploration of the art and music inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo and Juliet. Featuring Dr. Kevin Salfen, Dr. Annie Labatt, and a special roster of performers from OPERA San Antonio, this free event will illuminate the various ways in which the play has been reinterpreted in the performing, visual, and musical arts for centuries. This multifaceted, multi-media conversation anticipates OPERA San Antonio’s performances of Gonoud’s Romeo and Juliet, at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts on March 30 and April 1.
Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. with light refreshments before the presentation. The lecture and performances will be held from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. After the lecture has concluded, we will host a reception where guests are encouraged to purchase tickets to OSA’s upcoming production of Romeo & Juliet, mingle with the performers, and speak with the lecturers from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.
There is no cost to attend the lecture and seating is general admission.
