Live music, poetry, and dance will fill the stage for BMD’s 20th anniversary concert. The program features a virtuosic solo danced to the music of Juilliard professor and composer Michael White, a moving exploration of human connection performed to a live violin solo of a work by J.S. Bach, and the highly anticipated world premier of Ars Amatoria, a playful interpretation of ancient Roman poet Ovid’s three book ‘instructional’ writings about the arts of seduction and love. Ars Amatoria features a commissioned score by Larry Alan Smith, an award-winning composer, performer, and poet in his own right.

The Ars Amatoria, published about 1 BCE, is a guidebook for seduction; it includes many tips and tricks, which would not be out of place in a modern dating manual, while giving intimate vignettes of daily life in Ancient Rome. The first two books are written from a male point of view; the last book, which was probably written at a later date, is addressed to women. It is believed that this work was one of the reasons that Ovid was banished by the Emperor Augustus, who was attempting to promote a more austere morality.

 

*Tickets are on sale at The Kennedy Center Box Office. Additionally, BMD reserves the best seats in the house for its supporters.
