And if you are interested in early music and early dance, I am going to be in the Harvard Early Music Society's opera for the semester. Come see it this weekend!

Les Plaisirs de la Paix
An entertainment of opera and ballet,
featuring music of Charpentier and Lully

December 9-11; 8 PM. New College Theater, 10-12 Holyoke St., Cambridge, MA

The Harvard Early Music Society brings Versailles to life with an evening of entertainment featuring Marc-Antoine Charpentier's Les Arts Florissants (1685) and scenes from Jean-Baptiste Lully's Armide (1686) and Phaëton (1683). This production explores the dilemma of peace -- the line between peace of mind and complacency. As a troupe prepares to present its noble patrons with an evening of entertainment, the reality of life outside the theatre cannot be forgotten. With period instruments and dance, in the New College Theater.
