Event Details

The Rhetoric of Certainty

John Paul Shanley

Art and policy intersect again as the Minnesota Opera and
the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs convene a public conversation inspired by the world premiere of Doubt.

Librettist John Patrick Shanley and other distinguished panelists will explore the rhetoric and political implications of certainty and the natural human aversion to doubt, particularly in the context of the opera's setting (Vatican II and the Civil Rights movement) and the war in Iraq, the event which provided the playwright with his inspiration.

Join us at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 16, at the Rarig Center for this exciting conversation.
