Thursday 2 February from 19:30 to 21:30

This program is dedicated to the music of Pergolesi, whose enormous popularity during the era of Madame de Pompadour inspired the Guerre des Bouffons, an intellectual and artistic battle between partisans of Italian and French music. The performance will feature a semi-staged program of the Italian composer’s extraordinarily popular comedy La Servante maîtresse and a concert rendition of his beloved Stabat Mater, conducted by Patrick Dupré Quigley.

Kennedy Center- Terrace Theater

The celebration continues! After the DC performance of Pergolesi!, join Opera Lafayette artists, supporters, and staff for an intimate reception at the Watergate Hotel. Each ticket includes specialty drinks and passed hors d’oeuvres.
