Description

Join Boston Lyric Opera and Trident Café on Wednesday, November 7 at 7:00 PM for our first book club discussion of the Season. We’ll explore two novels – Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Chan and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon – as well as discuss the stories told through our fall operas, The Barber of Seville and Schoenberg in Hollywood.

A cultural phenomenon and now a major motion picture, at its heart Crazy Rich Asians is the story of a love that crosses social class and transcends obstacles. Rachel Chu, an economics professor, falls for Nick Young, who – unbeknownst to her – is the heir apparent to one of Singapore’s richest families. Parallels to The Barber of Seville abound in this comedy that also pulls on the heartstrings.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay traces the lives of two young, Jewish men in New York City before, during and after World War II. Talented artists, they break into the burgeoning world of comic books and use art as a vehicle to respond to the atrocities of Hitler’s Europe – much as Arnold Schoenberg in Schoenberg in Hollywood finds himself a refugee in California, confronting his identity as an artist and grappling with how his music can change the world.
