Pivotal Perspectives: Conversations on Art and Culture
The Three Faces of Rome: Ancient, Christian and Opera
Nordstrom Lecture Hall
Join us in welcoming Seattle Opera's Education Director Perry Lorenzo. Concurrent with the SAM's exhibitions of Ancient Roman and Italian Renaissance art, Seattle Opera is presenting Giacomo Puccini's popular classic Tosca. Lorenzo will discusses the three Roman locales of the opera as architectural history of Roman and Italian culture--the Church of Sant' Andrea, the Palazzo Farnese, and the Castel Sant' Angelo (Hadrian's Tomb), with a special look at the Church of Saint Clement.
Bringing together some of the most compelling thinkers on a given cultural subject, Pivotal Perspectives is a timely and innovative forum addressing pressing issues in art and society.
Free with Museum Admission.
