First Fridays: Les Délices

Featured Audio

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.
