8. THEATER: The Trial of Oscar Wilde
In the season of pride, immerse yourself in gay history with this “theatrical concert” focusing on the great writer’s trial on charges of “gross indecency.” James Melo’s script draws on trial transcripts, Wilde’s literary works, and his love letters to Lord Alfred Douglas, and it’s set to chamber music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including Chausson’s Concerto for violin, piano, and string quartet, and works by Satie, Elgar, Fauré, and Franck, performed by the Amphion String Quartet, violinist Susie Park, pianist Max Barros, and a barbershop quartet. Michael Halling stars as Wilde and Robert Ian Mackenzie as his nemesis, the Marquis of Queensberry. Presented by the Ensemble for the Romantic Century at New York City’s Symphony Space for four performances only, beginning Thursday. Order tickets here. – Trudy Ring
