6:30 PM Taste of Opera Puccini And Persia The San Diego Museum of Art's Asian collection has unique connections to "Turandot," a story of deep Persian roots with detours through China and Italy. This Puccini opera is truly a synthesis of the art and culture of the 'Silk Road' and its vastly differently cultures.

This event will have two ways for guests to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of this magical tale: VIP tours with Asian collection Curator Diana Chou and Dr. Nic Reveles, and a reception that will feature a conversation between these two experts. Light hors d'oeuvres, wine and Modern Times beer will be available, as well as a special performance by Angel Blue, who is making her San Diego Opera performance in "Turandot" as Lił.

Join us on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 6:30 PM for the VIP tour and 7:00 PM for the reception at the San Diego Museum of Art for "Puccini & Persia: A Celebration of Art and Opera."

The Asian Art collection will be open for guests to enjoy during the reception.

7:30 PM Lecture: The Age of Baroque The story of the Age of Baroque is a tale of today. To examine the 17th century is to reveal the 21st: two centuries united by tribalism, sectarianism, and acquiescence to unreasoning power.

We shall explore this dynamic period through the lens of its greatest artists. Art has always been the handmaiden of power, its uses and abuses magnified by this era. The power of grand monarchs of this period is clearly evident, whether through Philip IV of Spain, France's Sun King, or Louis XIV. The power of a monolithic Church confronted the existential threat of Martin Luther's Reformation. Prominent was the power of belief and ideas, and ultimately, the power of great art.

Linda Blair received her BA from Mills College and her MA from the University of San Diego. She has lectured on diverse topics in European art history for many years, primarily on the East Coast. Locally, she has lectured at The San Diego Museum of Art and UCSD Extension, as well as at the Athenaeum.

Admission/Cost: $14 - $15
