The John B. Hurford ’60 Humanities Center at Haverford College presents “An Evening with Madame F”, a musical drama by Claudia Stevens, visiting scholar/artist at the College of William and Mary. The performance will take place Sunday, November 9, at 3 p.m. in Marshall Auditorium of Roberts Hall.
Adopting the persona of an elderly concentration camp musician who had performed at Auschwitz, Stevens uses music actually played and sung by women inmates there, as well as first-hand accounts, to depict the physical struggle and ethical dilemma of those who survived through musical performance. The daughter of Holocaust survivors, she also meditates on the issue of treating the Holocaust as the subject for artistic expression.
One of the most honored Holocaust -related performances, “An Evening with Madame F” was produced for television broadcast by PBS affiliates WCVE and WHTJ. It has been seen in nearly 100 U.S. cities including New York, Chicago, Houston and Washington, D.C., as well as presented by many leading academic institutions across the nation.
