Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir

Whet your appetite for the classical stylings of Mozart and Haydn with violinist and director Rachel Podger in La Passione: Haydn & Mozart. “There is probably no more inspirational musician working today” says Gramophone about violinist Rachel Podger, whose sparkling Tafelmusik debut more than a decade ago left a lasting impression on their musicians and audiences alike. Podger makes her long-awaited return as soloist and director in a program of classical symphonies and concertos by Mozart, Haydn, and their contemporaries. Tafelmusik's award-winning recordings of Haydn symphonies are widely admired, and this concert is anchored by one of the most dramatic, Symphony no 49. Nicknamed “La Passione,” the work epitomizes the Sturm und Drang style, a precursor to romanticism. Smouldering with intensity, Haydn’s symphony offers early glimmers of the romantic style that would eventually flourish decades later. February 10-12 at Jeanne Lamon Hall. Visit their website for more details.

Istituo Italiano di Cultura

Scholar Alberto Zambenedetti presents his latest book Acting Across Borders. His lecture will interest cinephiles as Zambenedetti explores how Italian cinema from the 1930s-1980s has portrayed human mobility. Through close readings of a selection of films, Zambenedetti examines the concept of italianità (Italian-ness) as manifested in contexts related to migration, diaspora, exile, tourism, travel, and their supporting infrastructures. In addition, renowned theatre company DopoLavoro Teatrale presents The Revolution is Us, directed by Daniele Bartolini. Intertwining Pier Paolo Pasolini's Porno Teo Kolossal with The Revolution Is Us by Joseph Beuys, this interactive experience leads viewers to take on a co-authorial role. Divided into three parts/chapters, the first directly from the participants' homes, the second through the urban landscape and the third in an event space, this experiential work induces and provokes the spectators to become agents of change.
