Coffee Talks with Nan Colton: Catherine the Great – Theater Arts and Authority

Connect with the arts through monthly performances that give voice and embodiment to the two-dimensional. The MFA’s ever popular artist-in-residence Nan Colton invites us to meet an artist or historical figure in a 30-minute presentation that includes a cup of coffee and delectable pastries.

Today’s program is entitled: Catherine The Great – Theater Arts and Authority. Catherine II the Great (1729-1796) was not only an opera fan and patroness of the arts, but also an opera librettist. She loved theater with all her heart and created the Hermitage Theater which still offers shows to this day. Note: This presentation will be an adaptation of a previous script to augment the Art of the Stage exhibition.

Refreshments are served at 10:00 am, followed by the performance at 10:30 am.

FREE with Museum admission; FREE for MFA Members

Complimentary Valet Parking is available for attendees from 9 am until 2 pm on the day of the performance. Enjoy lunch in the MFA Café following the performance and make a day of it!
