*CANCELLED* Lectures to Enhance the Second Vermont Classical Play: Clouds by Aristophanes

September 11, 2020
6:15 pm


Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center
Please note: this event has been cancelled due to concerns around the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19).

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.
