Come to the great film director Orson Welles’s theatrical adaptation of Herman Melville’s masterpiece, Moby Dick. Performances will take place on Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 7, 8, and 9 in the Center for the Arts Lab Theatre (Building 1P, Room 110) at 7:00pm.
It is an adventure story about the mad Captain Ahab’s doomed hunt for the white whale, Moby Dick, to wreak vengeance upon him. But Welles also weaves in Melville’s radical work on race in the U.S., on the oceanic, on international maritime labor, and his profound thought and beautiful language. Set in a theater that becomes a ship, our stunning set brings us to another world, in which American whaling was a core of 19th-Century experience. This performance will be of special interest to English literature students, history students, cinema students, those interested in seas and ships and their history, and for anyone who likes a good story with fascinating characters.
Ticket are $10/$5 for students with student ID. For reservations, call the Center for the Arts Box Office at 718.982.2787.
This is a CC CLUE event.
