*CANCELLED* Lectures to Enhance the Second Vermont Classical Play: Clouds by Aristophanes
September 11, 2020
Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center
The Vermont Classical Play 2020 is Aristophanes’ Clouds. This ancient Greek comedy explores the timeless clash of traditional wisdom and new learning, inter-generational strife, and a villainous Socrates. The production features original music, dance, and a live band.
The 7:30 pm performance is preceded by an informative and engaging lecture at 6:15 pm on some aspect of the play’s historical and literary context. Pre-show wine and mead tastings at 5:30 pm. Both the lectures and the tastings are free with ticket to the performance. Hosted by the UVM Classics department and supported in part by a VHC grant.
