Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art
A talk by Sam Daley-Harris an internationally recognized Social Entrepreneur, founder of RESULTS, and the Microcredit Summit Campaign
by Nino Rota
Sung in the original Italian with English surtitles.
What fun! While trying to get to his wedding, a young Parisian man is swept up in events that spiral hilariously out of control. The composer of iconic film scores such as The Godfather, Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet, and Fellini’s La dolce vita, La strada, and 8 ½ also wrote this charming and disarming farce that moves like the wind with bountiful bel canto melodies and a large, eccentric cast of characters.
By Federico Garcia Lorca
Directed by Keith Byron Kirk
The Mother has lost in feuds with the Felix family all her menfolks except her youngest son, The Bridegroom. She arranges a wedding with The Bride, who is loved by young Leonardo Felix. He and The Bride run away. Guided by The Beggar Woman (Death) and The Moon (A Young Woodcutter), The Bridegroom overtakes the lovers. He and Leonardo kill each other, leaving The Mother alone in her empty house.
