Film "La Dolce Vita" BIG Screen Classic! 2014-11-23 15:00:00
Description

LA DOLCE VITA

Federico Fellini, Italy, 1960, 175 min; Italian with subtitles; PG

The biggest hit from the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, this rocketed Fellini to international success—ironically, by offering a damning critique of the culture of stardom. A look at the darkness beneath the seductive lifestyles of Rome’s rich and glamorous, the film follows a notorious celebrity journalist (a sublimely cool Marcello Mastroianni). This mordant picture was an incisive commentary on the decadence of contemporary Europe, and it provided a prescient glimpse of just how fame-obsessed our society would become. –Criterion Collection

Exhibit Roy Green: Bird Quartet in Commercial Alley 2014-11-23 All Day
Description

The City of Victoria’s creative partnership with Open Space has transformed the west wall of the Youth Empowerment Society building in Commercial Alley’s busy thoroughfare into an accessible, outdoor public art gallery.

Program supporters: British Columbia Arts Council, Province of British Columbia Community Gaming Grant, Canada Council for the Arts, Capital Regional District, City of Victoria, Victoria Foundation.

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-23 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Music BEETHOVEN & BIZET 2014-11-23 14:30:00
Description

Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra

Yariv Aloni, Music Director & Conductor

BEETHOVEN Coriolan Overture, op. 62
BIZET L’Arlésienne Suites
ENESCU Romanian Rhapsody No. 2
SMETANA Má Vlast: Vltava (The Moldau)

The GVYO opens its 29th season with a sparkling collection of musical treasures from Austria, France, Romania, and Bohemia.  Seething with tragedy, the instantly-recognized Coriolanus Overture is a central work of Beethoven’s “heroic” period.  The music of Bizet’s L’Arlésienne Suites evokes the beautiful Provençal countryside, while foreshadowing the pathos of lost love. Romanian Rhapsody No. 2 by Enescu is a rarely heard gem of impassioned majesty.  Má Vlast: Vltava is perhaps Smetana’s best-loved work: the symphonic poem describes the beautiful Czech river as it flows from the Bohemian Forest toward Prague, taking in along the way a forest hunt, a peasant wedding, and water nymphs bathing in the moonlight!
