On Thursday, June 1st, 2006, beginning at 4:30pm, NYU's Center for Ancient Studies will host a conference entitled Enacting Medea: Theatre, Opera and Film. This special, one-evening event will be held at Hemmerdinger Hall, 100 Washington Square East, New York University.

The conference will bring noted panelists together to discuss interpretations of Medea across the spectrum of performing art forms.

Peter Meineck, Artistic Director of the Aquila Theatre Company, and clinical assistant professor of Classics at NYU, will be the moderator.

Aquila has been the professional company in residence at NYU’s Center for Ancient Studies since 1999 and has since become a major part of New York City’s theatrical landscape. With several productions each year, Aquila has brought excellent classical theatre to thousands of New Yorkers. “Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing, and crystalline in effect.” – The New Yorker.

The conference complements a concert performance of Cherubini's Medee at Carnegie Hall on Saturday, June 3rd, 2006 at 7:30pm. The Aquila Theatre Company will be performing in a new translation of Cherubinis' original French libretto.
