Tues., 7:00–8:30 pm, Feb. 21, 6 sessions

$89

The history of the modern world has been a story of both conflict and the melding of cultures. Three monotheistic religions have played an out-sized role in the evolution of the Western World: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. How have these religions and the cultures they embrace led us to where we are today? How has each molded the way we think about each other? This course will examine the impact of religion on contemporary Middle Eastern culture. The course will focus on specific national settings where religion has played a decisive role: Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Israel. Internal divisions and tensions will be explored as well as inter-religious conflicts.

Dianne Sadoff, Professor of English, Rutgers University
Thurs., 7:00–9:00 pm, Feb. 9, 8 sessions
$130

This course will ask students to read Hilary Mantel’s millennial novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies (and, if the third has been published, the final volume in the trilogy as well). We’ll also read Wolf Hall & Bring Up the Bodies: The Stage Adaptation to think about how a novel becomes a screenplay. We’ll think about how writers, directors, and cinematographers or dramaturgs translate fiction to the stage and screen.

We’ll also watch the PBS/BBC television series, which stars Mark Rylance of the Royal Shakespeare Company as Cromwell and Claire Foy as Anne Boleyn. Our focus will be on the fidelity or infidelity of the series to the novels; on the acting, lighting, costumes, and heritage shooting locations; on the ways the series comments on itself as adaptation.

010 THE AMAZING ARTISTIC LIFE OF BIRDS NEW!
Wendy Worth, art historian and ornithologist
Tues., 7:00–9:00 pm, Feb. 28, 6 sessions
$120

Join us while we explore the amazing artistic choices that influence the behavior of birds during mate selection, nest building, chick raising and communication. Long before humans appeared, birds were making art. Bower Birds made sculptures; Birds of Paradise pirouetted in feather tutus and songbirds made music. An often overlooked aspect of birds is the significance of beauty in their lives. New scientific work indicates that aesthetic values in birds may actually determine the evolution of their species. Birds’ vivid colors and lilting songs are not a mere chance development. Is there a kind of beauty that all species — even humans — appreciate equally? Come decide for yourself while observing the many forms of art that birds create and the beautiful images of the birds!

011 SHAKESPEARE’S “DREAM”: FROM PLAY-TO-BALLET

Denise Asfar, Studio director, amateur thespian
Tues., 6:00–9:30 pm, March 14, 28, April 4, 25, 4 sessions
$130

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is among Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, and for centuries has inspired myriad artists, writers, composers, choreographers, and filmmakers—from Purcell’s The Fairy-Queen and Mendelssohn’s Overture (which today is performed for countless wedding recessionals) to Woody Allen’s Midsummer Night‘s Sex Comedy. In this course, we’ll explore the play in depth, give dramatic readings; view the 1935 Max Reinhardt classic (featuring James Cagney as Bottom and Mickey Rooney as Puck); and sample excerpts from more recent films, as well as two ballets. There’s an optional class trip to the NYC Ballet’s current production, as well as to a local performance of a Shakespeare play.

Princeton High School

TEXT: All required texts will be supplied by the instructor. Recommended: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (The Sourcebooks Shakespeare; Book & CD, 2006); William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Folger Shakespeare Library, 2004).

012 MAKERS AND BREAKERS OF HISTORY - NINE ILLUSTRATE D BIOGRAPHIES   NEW!
Elena Livingstone-Ross, teacher of art history and
European history
Tues., 7:00–8:30 pm, Feb. 14, 9 sessions
(No class April 11)
$130

We will start with antiquity, for time is the ultimate judge of greatness (or iniquity). It separates wheat from chaff and men from boys (women from girls). Alexander is always a safe bet to begin with, as is Caesar. We may then look at the Persian Cyrus the Great. Pompey was called the Great by the Romans. So was Hannibal by the Carthaginians. There are also the lesser known to the general public, but no less great, like the Chaldean king Nebuchadnezzar, who took the Hebrews into Babylonian captivity, but allowed them to thrive there. (Cyrus the Great will allow them to go back to Jerusalem). And we shall ever be mindful of Cleopatra and her Anthony! Suggestions are very welcome from the attendees (you can email the instructor at leon_1054@yahoo.com). Should we decide, in the course of the series, to jump ahead, we can do that of course. There is always Winston Churchill.

013 FILM OF THE SIXTIES PHS NEW!
Judith Zinis, professor of film studies
Tues., 7:00–9:00 pm, Feb. 14, 6 sessions
$110

During the 1960s, the United States went from a seemingly cohesive and almost naive society to a country turned upside down by citizens unhappy with government, feeling discrimination against minorities, and oppressive mores. Protests and violence became the norm on both sides of the debate not unlike modern day struggles with issues of national identity, religious freedom, and civil rights. Just as American culture underwent radical change so did cinema, mirroring the breakdown of traditional values and a desire for greater authenticity from Arthur Penn’s Bonnie and Clyde to the Maysles’ brothers’ Rolling Stones documentary Gimme Shelter. This course will explore fictional
and documentary films that changed American filmmaking by using new film techniques, unconventional structure, and explicit content.

$45

A legal perspective on the accuracy of the portrayal of our legal system in the classic films: To Kill a Mocking Bird, The Verdict, and Woman in Gold. In each class, we will focus on a different movie and discuss the legal issues raised, separating what is factually accurate and what is cinematic fiction. It would be helpful to have seen the film prior to taking the class.

015 THEATRE IN 3-D (see note for location)
(includes one script*)
Paula T. Alekson,
Artistic Engagement Manager
at McCarter Theater
$135

Lectures: 7:30–9:00 pm, Wed., Jan. 18, 25, Feb. 15,
March 15, 29, May 10, 24, 7 sessions

Performances: Wed., Feb. 1, Saint Joan: Wed., Feb. 8, Hamlet, Thurs., March 23, Murder on the Orient Express; Wed., May 17, Intimate Apparel

Meaning in all written work is shaped by both the author’s intention and what the reader brings to the text. Plays are unique in offering a third dimension of meaning: that created by the director, actors, and designers. This course will focus on the two plays offered this fall at McCarter Theatre, as well as an additional production either at another regional theatre or broadcast through the National Theatre Live initiative. We will discuss each play and its meaning before each performance; see the play as a group, if you wish; and then explore what has been revealed by the production.

The plays to be included are: William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan presented in repertory by Bedlam, a New York-based theatre company critically acclaimed for their exciting reexaminations of dramatic classics utilizing stripped-down stagings and unconventional approaches to casting. Hamlet, often viewed as Shakespeare’s greatest play, is a classic revenge tragedy/quasi-historical legend featuring perhaps the most complex and internally conflicted character ever rendered; its impact on the English language and the world stage makes it a play to return to again and again—or experience for the very first time! Shaw’s Saint Joan, his only tragedy, shows us the playwright at the “height of his power as a poet” in a dramatic examination that is as much a commentary on politics, religion, and human relationships, as it is an account of the downfall of the extraordinary young woman who led the French army to victory at Orléans. Playwright Ken Ludwig has been granted permission by the Estate of Agatha Christie to create the first stage adaptation of 1934 detective novel Murder on the Orient Express. This world-premiere production, featuring the murder mystery writer’s most famous detective, Hercule Poirot, will be directed by McCarter Artistic Director Emily Mann. Intimate Apparel is Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage’s tender and exquisitely-written historical romance, which centers on a thirty-five year-old unmarried African American seamstress at the turn of the twentieth century in New York City. The play offers well-wrought, complex characters and perhaps the most quietly moving dramatic expressions of loneliness and desire ever written for the stage. It will be directed by Jade King Carrol.

Tickets and Texts: Students should purchase their own copies of George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan published by Penguin Classics (2001; ISBN-13: 978-0140437911; ISBN-10: 0140437916); William Shakespeare’s Hamlet published as a Folger Shakespeare Library Edition by Simon and Shuster (1992; ISBN-13: 978-0743477123; ISBN-10: 074347712X); and Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel published by Dramatists Play Service (2005; ISBN-10: 0822220091; ISBN-13: 978-0822220091). A manuscript copy of Ken Ludwig’s dramatic adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel Murder on the Orient Express will be provided to students by the instructor. In addition, the students will purchase discounted tickets for Saint Joan, Hamlet, Murder on the Orient Express, and Intimate Apparel during the introductory class. These tickets will be priced at $35 per play. (Each student may purchase one additional ticket for the same performances at the same price.) Students who already have reserved tickets for these plays may exchange them if they wish.

NOTE: This class will meet in the President’s Lounge Board Room on the lower level of McCarter’s Matthews Theater. It is accessed through the 91 University Place Administrative Services entrance.

French teacher and textbook writer
Thurs., 6:00–9:30 pm,
Feb. 9, 23; March 2, 16, 23, April 6, 20, 7 sessions

$139

Massenet’s Werther is considered a pinnacle of French Romantic opera. Based on Goethe’s The Sorrows of Young Werther, it’s the tale of a melancholic poet’s impulsive, hopeless love. In this course, we explore the French text and the harmonically thrilling music by viewing video-recordings, listening to audio-recordings, and closely following the libretto. Bilingual (French-English) libretti will help advanced students further their reading skills, while providing beginners with authentic contexts for basic language instruction. We’ll practice enough French to appreciate and sing-along with our favorite numbers, including the aria, “Pourquoi me réveiller?” There’s an optional trip to the Metropolitan Opera’s production.

TEXT: All required texts will be supplied by the instructor. Recommended: Werther box set CDs with libretto (Orchestre de Paris, Georges Prêtre Conductor: EMI Classics re-release); Christopher Kendris, Pronounce It Perfectly in French: With Audio CDs, 3rd Edition (Barron’s, 2013); Barron’s French-English Pocket Dictionary (Barron’s Educational Series, 2015).

Thurs., 6:30–8:30 pm, April 20, 2 sessions

Deciding which personal legal and financial documents to keep and which to throw can be daunting. As a result, most of us either keep everything and eventually face the problem of bloated files in precious space or attempting to replace a critical record that got tossed unknowingly. In this mini-course, we’ll review the importance of personal documents, such as bills, receipts, contracts, insurance policies and statements, bank and broker statements, investment prospectuses and reports, appraisals, annuity contracts and bills, wills, powers of attorney, prenuptials, trust agreements, and tax returns. Some records may be irreplaceable and should be kept in a locked fireproof file; others may be kept in a permanent file; others may be kept for a definite period of time before tossing; still others can be immediately tossed so they never make it into the files in the first place. Making sure the files and folders are set up properly for your purposes will smooth the job of filing away the papers and records.
