Queer Maximalism and the French Rococo

Presented in FIAF's Florence Gould Hall on Wednesday, March 22, 2023.

FIAF and Opera Lafayette present a musical evening delving into the striking parallels between the classic extravagance of French Rococo style and the over-the-top aesthetic of Queer Maximalism.

Join costume designer Machine Dazzle, art historian Meredith Martin, tenor Oliver Mercer, musician Avi Stein, and bass-baritone Jonathan Woody, along with moderator Ryan Brown, founder and artistic director of Opera Lafayette, for music and lively conversation. The topic of contemporary resonance will be debated, while excerpts will be performed from Opera Lafayette’s upcoming production of Rameau’s comedy ballet Io, premiering in New York on May 9 at the Museo del Barrio.
