Thenext AU­TUMN GE­NIUS con­fer­ence, pre­sented by the Es­tria Quin­tet, will take place next Fri­day April 10th 2015. This se­ries of six con­fer­ence-con­certs pays trib­ute to our ma­ture ge­niuses and is of­fered free to se­niors aged 60 and up. On this oc­ca­sion, Dr. Jack Eby from Bishop’s Uni­ver­sity will present a con­fer­ence in English on the topic of the opera OTELLO by Giuseppe Verdi. This last opera of the com­poser, com­pleted at the age of 73, uses the work of the Ital­ian li­bret­tist Ar­rigo Boito, who re­mained very faith­ful to the orig­i­nal text by Shake­speare. The pre­sen­ta­tion will be ac­com­pa­nied by cho­sen se­lec­tions from the opera on DVD.

The first pre­sen­ta­tion will take place at 11 a.m. at UU Estrie church in North Hat­ley (201 Main Street) and will be fol­lowed by a light lunch. The sec­ond pre­sen­ta­tion will be given at 3 pm at the Up­lands Cul­tural and Her­itage Cen­tre in Lennoxville (9 Speid Street) and will be fol­lowed by an af­ter­noon tea. Reser­va­tions are manda­tory as places are very limited. Reser­va­tions with Pauline Far­ru­gia at 819-842-1072 or at es­tria@cgo­ca­ble.ca

This mag­nif­i­cent project is pos­si­ble thanks to the fi­nan­cial par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Con­férence Ré­gionale des Élus de l’Estrie and to the Se­cré­tariat aux aînés.
