ARTEMISIA: Light and Shadow Sunday, February 3 at 5 pm - Smith Auditorium at Manhattan College Admission: Free
ARTEK's theater show featuring actress/singer Sarah Chalfy as the 17th-century Italian baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi, with music by Strozzi and Cavalli.
A true story of a life more dramatic than an Italian opera: Artemisia survived a sensational trial to become an internationally renowned painter, and the secret lover of a Florentine nobleman.
"On stage, Artemisia is also vengeful, but philosophical, and ultimately joyful. She sings of fate and destiny and, as she did so, I was moved, included, inspired, comforted." - Phyllis Chesler, noted feminist writer.
