More than two millennia after her death, Cleopatra VII remains an enigma and an object of fascination. The last Ptolemaic ruler of Hellenistic Egypt and the most influential woman of her times, Cleopatra amassed enormous wealth and power. She lived dangerously and died sensationally. Ever since, she has been an iconic figure, continually re-imagined through the cultural prisms of successive ages.

Now in its 33rd year, our diverse lecture/performance series illuminates people and places at the intersections of history, fine art, the performing arts, social history, politics, and philosophy of the arts.
