Description

"500 Years of Orlando Furioso" celebrates five centuries of Ludovico Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso (first published in 1516) by exploring its sources, as well as its enduring influence on the arts up to the present day. More specifically, presenters will discuss the following topics: how Ariosto exploits Ovidian themes and satire in his depiction of the dynamic between male and female characters as that of predator and prey; Ariosto's legacy in the visual arts, drama, novels, films, and puppet theater; and musical adaptations of the poem. From the Furioso's melding of classical, medieval, and humanistic sources; to its retellings, continuations, and adaptations in the early modern and modern eras; to works of historical and fantasy fiction in the last few decades, the Furioso continues to captivate new generations of audiences and readers.
