Opera Lafayette presents
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Terrace Theater
Thursday, February 2, 2023, 7:30pm
Pre-Concert Lecture 6:30-7:00pm in the theatre by scholar Rebecca Harris-Warrick
This program is dedicated to the music of Pergolesi, whose enormous popularity during the era of Madame de Pompadour inspired the Guerre des Bouffons, an intellectual and artistic battle between partisans of Italian and French music. The performance will feature a semi-staged program of the Italian composer’s extraordinarily popular comedy La Servante maîtresse and a concert rendition of his beloved Stabat Mater, conducted by Patrick Dupré Quigley.
Opera Lafayette has graciously offered a 55% discount to MCAA students and their families with code Pergolesi23.
