The Gentle Shepherd is a story about love, the pursuit of happiness in life, and discovering what matters most. Join the BBE in this landmark performance - last seen in North America in 1798!
For those of you that came to a Scottish Folk Night at Big Bricks or The Scottish Home, thanks for celebrating with us! If you missed the party, you can still come to the main event - our production of The Gentle Shepherd. Until then, check out photos and videos of the fun, and check back for our next event. We're planning more Scottish fun for the near future!
A three-part BBE and DePaul Humanities Center Collaboration
The DePaul Humanities Center kicks off its yearlong investigation into the relations among the humanities, arts, and space-sciences with a celebration of The Red Planet. After a screening of the 2015 movie, “The Martian,” the evening continues with live performances on period instruments of “The Descent of Mars” from Jean Baptiste Lully’s Thésée (1675) as well as music composed by Vicenzo Galilei (Galileo’s father).
Don't miss out on the other two programs in the series!
