Arnold Schoenberg's 1912 expressionist masterpiece "Pierrot Lunaire" ("Moonstruck Pierrot") is a melodrama about Pierrot, the sad clown character from the Italian commedia dell'arte, set to 21 poems by Albert Giraud. The narrator presents the poems in the sprechstimme style, a cross between speaking and singing.

This interdisciplinary event features a musical performance accompanied by dramatic poetry readings and displays of visual art along with a pre-concert lecture.
