The Glimmerglass “Lounge” series offers a variety of informal, intimate performances throughout the season, ranging from late-night cabarets to curated combinations of art song and readings.
Arthur Miller was inspired to write The Crucible as he and many other artists came under attack by the House Committee on Un-American Activities. In BLACKLIST, our first Lounge performance of the summer, we will look at several centuries’ worth of artists who were censored by their respective authorities – whether the French aristocracy, the Nazis, or the United States Congress. The program, performed by members of the Young Artists Program, will include everything from Italian grand opera to hit tunes from Tin Pan Alley. The program is about one hour long, making it a perfect pre-dinner entertainment.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
