Rencontres Mensuelles: jeudi, 24 janvier, 2013 at 7:00
On Thursday, January 24th, 2013, l’Alliance Française will kick-off their monthly cultural meetings with a special production on Louis XV called, The Entertainment of Louis XV at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. In partnership with Early Music Now, The Entertainment of Louis XV will include a talk by Gabrielle Verdier, French professor from UW-Milwaukee, on the development of French Baroque in the 17th century. This is when the specificity of French Baroque develops under the absolute monarchy of Louis XIV. She will also talk about the changes that occur in the 18th century after the death of Lully and Louis XIV, when the Italian influence becomes stronger in French music. The discussion will be followed by a reception with drinks and light hors d’oeuvre. This talk is in precedent to a performance by ensemble Masques from Montreal on Saturday, February 16th at 5 pm. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is located at 914 East Knapp St. Milwaukee, 53202. This event is free and open to the public!
