Late Night at the Lehman Loeb: A Night in Naples

When: Thursday, May 4, 2017, 5:00pm-9:00pm

Where: Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

Enjoy an evening in Naples--in Poughkeepsie. Taking inspiration from the new exhibition In the Light of Naples: The Art of Francesco De Mura, the Art Center's Student Committee hosts a fun and varied evening with music, film, talks, and refreshments. At 5:15 in the galleries, Eugenio Giusti (Italian Department) will give a multimedia presentation on two different Neapolitan versions of La Cenerentola--Cinderella as we know her in English--from the 17th and 20th centuries. Then at 6:00, opera students of Drew Minter (Music Department) perform arias from Rossini's Regata Veneziana and Donizetti’s Don Pasquale with piano accompaniment. At 6:30, the music continues with harpist Joy Plaisted playing music of the 18th and 19th centuries in the Sculpture Garden, where light refreshments will be served. The night rounds out with the contemporary expressions of a jazz ensemble from Vassar and film projections from La gatta cenerentola. In short, there's something for everyone, including the chance to view the special exhibition until 9pm.

Late Night at the Lehman Loeb is made possible by the generous support of the Jane W. Nuhn Charitable Trust.
