THE SIEGE OF CALAIS
JULY 16 - AUGUST 19, 2017
The story of courage and self-sacrifice in the year-long Siege of Calais during the Hundred Years’ War inspired artists from Donizetti to Rodin. Our new production of this rarely-heard Italian bel canto work examines concepts of homeland and heroism in a region that continues to be a backdrop for conflict.
Presented in Italian with projected English text.
This production is generously sponsored by Elizabeth M. and Jean-Marie R. Eveillard.
