Afro-Semitic Experience

November 13 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Wednesday, November 13, 1:00 p.m., in the Charles Garner Recital Hall (room 112C), Engleman Hall, at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, The Afro-Semitic Experience presents a performance of Letters from the Affair, a new multi-media Musical Theater work.  Featuring Cantor Malachi Kanfer as Camille Pissarro, Cantor Martin Levson as Edgar Degas, and Alvin Carter, Jr. as the Narrator, Letters from the Affair tells the true but little-known story about how the Dreyfus Affair ended the friendship between the artists Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro.

The work traces the relationship of the two artists from before the first impressionist exhibition until Pissarro’s death in 1903.  All of lyrics to the songs in this work are taken directly from letters written by these two artists. This event is part of SCSU’s Social Justice month and is sponsored by the Social Justice Committee along with the Music, Art, and Theater Departments, the Judaic Studies Program and the Multicultural Center.

Admission is free.
