10:30 AM Kyoto Prize Symposium Talk by Dr. Richard Taruskin Dr. Taruskin is a musicologist and critic of prodigious erudition who has transformed contemporary perspectives on music through historical research and essays that defy conventional critical paradigms.

He has pioneered a new dimension in Western music culture through musicology research that transcends conventional historiographical methodologies, issuing sharp critical analysis backed by his exhaustive knowledge of many diverse fields. His unrivaled perspective has significantly influenced both performance and study, elevating the importance and creative value of critical discourse to the music world.

Taruskin is widely acknowledged as the leading scholar in the field of Russian music today. His master's thesis, "Vladimir Vasilievich Stasov: Functionary in Art" (1968)—which won the Bennet Prize from the Columbia University Department of English and Comparative Literature for the best essay in the humanities other than a Ph.D dissertation—laid the groundwork for his research in Russian music, which has remained the focus of most of his scholarship.

Join us for an unforgettable discussion with the world's leading scholar of Russian music.

7:30 PM Stage: The Heir Apparent Penniless Eraste is in love with the fair Isabelle but her mother, Madame Argante, will permit the marriage only if Eraste can show he will inherit the estate of his rich but miserly Uncle Geronte. Unfortunately for Eraste, old Geronte has also fallen for the fair Isabelle, and plans to marry her and leave everything he owns to her—squashing the young love forever. Impersonating the old man and also two brash, disinherited relatives, Eraste's wily servant Crispin dictates a will favorable to his master (and to himself, of course), only to find that even the best laid plans come undone!

David Ives' adaptation is rich with flowing French couplets, and this joyful farce has everything working out in the end.

8:00 PM Stage: A Jewish Joke In 1950's Hollywood, at the height of the Communist Blacklist, when careers were ruined by a whisper, we meet irascible comedy screenwriter Bernie Lutz. Funny and lovable, Bernie has made his way up the ladder by being a spineless Hollywood sellout. Now, the night before a big red carpet premiere that will make Bernie's career, he has been asked to name names and give up his friend. He has one day to decide if he will accede to government demands and save his skin, or to protect his friend and save his soul in the most serious decision of his life. One man's journey through a historical reality as well as into the depths of his own soul is at the heart of this multi-layered, compelling and relevant play.
