Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know

Music Direction by: Geoffrey Lancaster
Performed by: Classical Vocal, Piano and Acting students and staff

Georg Benda’s late eighteenth-century masterpiece Ariadne auf Naxos, Haydn’s scintillating cantata Arianna a Naxos and Debussy’s exotic Epigraphes Antiques will inspire us all to court the Muse.
