First Fridays: Les Délices
Just as in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, true love sometimes ends with the ultimate sacrifice. The legendary lovers Hero & Leander, Pyramus & Thisbe, and Hippolyte & Aricie indulged forbidden desires, arranged secret trysts, faced natural disasters, suffered tragic death, and even – with intercession from the Gods – found redemption and reunification.
"Fated Lovers" presented by Les Délices is April 8 at 8:00pm at The Galleries at CSU and April 9 at 4:00pm at Plymouth Church UCC. In this live edition of First Fridays hosted by Bill O'Connell, member performed selections in ideastream's KeyBank Studio.
