Free lunch and lecture April 21: Multicultural Lindisfarne

Free Lecture & Lunch: Multicultural Lindisfarne by Doug Burger, Tues, April 21,12-1:30pm UMC 415. In 635, at the request of the fierce Anglo-Saxon King Oswald, the Irish monk, Aidan, began a Christian mission in Lindisfarne. He came with Celtic sensibilities to a Viking-like kingdom with its culture of battle loyalties. The interaction of these three “Christianities” perhaps provides an instructive example of the ways in which we might be influenced by our own culture in our religious understandings.

    'L'incoronazione di Poppea'

    Monteverdi’s drama about sex, crime and realpolitik during the debauched reign of the Roman emperor Nero, turning conventional morality on its head—virtue is punished and greed rewarded. The score soars but the sensual duet between Nero and his lover—eventually wife—Poppea, Pur ti miro, pur ti godo—meaning, “I gaze at you, I possess you”—is the pièce de résistance.

    April 23 - 26, Music Theatre, Imig Music Building
