Event Date/Time: Oct 11, 2009
At this matinee--with its uproarious good time and knowledge--you'll meet the explanation of unkindness and some of the biggest confusion in people's lives. Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 1777 comedy, with its scandal-relishing men and women, is, Mr. Siegel explained, about a question tormenting people now: "What is the deepest thing in us, sincerity or insincerity?" And hear "What Can Chamber Music Tell Us about Social Life?"--an explanation and performance of Handel's Flute Sonata in G Major.
