Letters from the Affair

FringePVD: The Providence Fringe Festival

we’re going to be presenting two live performances of our work, “Letters from the Affair,” at the FRINGEPVD, the Providence Fringe festival on Wednesday, July 22 and Thursday, July 23 at 7:00 p.m., EST. Because of the pandemic, both performances will be streamed online from the festival.

Joining us for this performance will be Cantor Martin Levson who will be singing the role of Edgar Degas and Cantor Randall Schloss will be singing the role of Camille Pissarro.

Letters from the Affair tells a little-known story about the Dreyfus Affair and how it ended the friendship between the artists Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro. The work traces the relationship of the two artists from before the first impressionist exhibition until Pissarro’s death in 1903. All of lyrics to the songs in this work are taken directly from letters written by these two artists, hence the title of the piece. For more about the work please visit our FRINGEPVD page. http://fringepvd.org/letters-from-the-affair.html

Performances will be streamed live from the FRINGEPVD Facebook page at facebook.com/fringepvd, and on the Wilbury Theatre Group YouTube page at youtube.com/wilburytheatregroup.

Audiences may view the performances for free as they happen live, or purchase a 2020 Fringe Access Pass for $20 to view performances at their convenience on the FRINGEPVD website at fringepvd.org/all-access.
