Reclaiming Lucretia: Responding to Sexual Violence through Music, Poetry, and Story

February 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

As we look to BLO’s upcoming production of The Rape of Lucretia, join us for this unique event as we deeply explore one aspect of Lucretia’s tale—artistic depictions of the work’s central act of devastating brutality and its resonance in the conversation about sexual violence today. Artists share performances of opera, Shakespeare and poetry, and the words of contemporary survivors.
