In conjunction with David et Jonathas

Moderated by John Heilpern

Conductor William Christie, along with his ravishing vocal and instrumental ensemble, Les Arts Florissants, has near-singlehandedly renewed appreciation of 17th- and 18th-century French repertoire.

In this talk, moderated by longtime theater critic and current Vanity Fair columnist John Heilpern, Christie surveys his considerable career at BAM since his first appearance with Atys in 1989. The discussion will be interspersed with harpsichord demonstrations by Christie.
