misc_none 7:00 PM Princeton Festival Lecture - Figaro: A New Opera Hero   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Lawrence Programs   609-989-6920   lawprogs@mcl.org
    The later part of the eighteenth century was a period of great change. Politics, social order, and customs were all turned upside down. Old notions about marriage for profit and prestige were replaced by the idea of romantic love. This is reflected in the world of opera where the stories concerned real people and real situations. Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro” offers a close look at this interesting period. Princeton University Art Museum docent Marianne Grey will illustrate these changes and new ideas with portraits, cartoons, genre paintings and architectural designs. Registration suggested.
