    Presented by Skylark Opera Theatre

    The Most Happy Fella is everyone’s favorite musical they’re never seen. For lovers of music theater, the piece is somehow solidly part of our internal repertoire but yet very few of us have actually seen a production – and this is probably because the piece is difficult to cast and produce. It requires strong (almost operatic) voices with great acting skills, and it requires a production that can clearly communicate an epic story that is filled with hope, longing, redemption and love.

    Think lush, gorgeous music with a complex, and moving story-line. Quite like a spicy, oak-aged Chardonnay from the Napa Valley.

    LEONARDO DA VINCI AT 500, "The Theater of the Human Body"

    Exhibit curated by Francesca Bortoletti
    in collaboration with Lois G. Hendrickson and Emily Beck

    October 21-25, 2019
    9:30am – 4:00pm, The Wangensteen Historical Library


    This one-week exhibit draws upon the Wangensteen Historical Library’s strong holdings in the history of anatomy and its interplay with art, theater, and sciences. The exhibit explores the rediscovery of female and male body, their grace, motion and sense of proportion at the time of Leonardo as well as the artist’s legacy, showing benchmarks of anatomical and artistic illustrations, literary poems, treatises, and anatomical theater.

    The exhibit is free and open to the public. No registration required.

    On October 22, from 10:30am to 12:30am visitors of the exhibit will have the opportunity to attend a live demonstration of master painter Mark Balma. The artist will replicate and paint Leonardo’s drawing “Matilda”, the woman who guided Dante through the Purgatorio until Beatrice revealed herself (see details below). For U of M students and faculty only.

    A second live demonstration is planned for October 24. Registration is required. Click here for details.
