Dvořák—Hiawatha—Melodrama

DAHA presents a program of lectures and performances around the theme of musical melodrama (the combination of speech and music) and Dvořák’s near obsession with Longfellow’s Hiawatha.

 

The event features Dvořák scholar Michael Beckerman as moderator and actor; cultural historian Joseph Horowitz; David Samuels, a scholar of Native American music and colonial contact; and flutist Kaori Fujii with piano accompaniment.

This will also serve as an unofficial launch for the Naxos recording of the Hiawatha Melodrama created by Horowitz and Beckerman on a CD titled “Dvořák and America.”

General Admission to be paid at door: $20.  Seniors, Students, Czech Center Club Members: $10.
