The Emperor of the Moon: A Fantastically Funny FarceFri 5/11 - Sun 6/3
Enjoy Comedy? Dance? Opera? Live Music? Don't miss THE EMPEROR OF THE MOON!
Long before Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, people pondered the possibility of life there. Back in 1687, playwright Aphra Behn explored this very theme in her hilarious and fantastical farce, The Emperor of the Moon.
One hundred and fifty years after the death of Copernicus and nearly fifty years after the death of Galileo, London experienced its own "lunar moment." Literature that creatively captured people's curiosity about the possibility of life on other planets abounded. In The Emperor of the Moon, Behn shrewdly and sensationally explores the shift from natural philosophy to natural science.
A testament to Aphra Behn's savvy knowledge of London stagecraft and many other emerging art forms, including the COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE tradition, OPERA, and DANCE, The Emperor of the Moon is a dazzling work of theatre with something for everyone to enjoy!
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
