New York City
Banned in England shortly before the Nobel Prize for literature was awarded to the playwright, this intricately woven masterpiece of plots and subplots was called “one of the greatest plays in all of world literature” by author Ayn Rand. Maurice Maeterlinck’s fervent fifteenth century Italian tale, Monna Vanna is set during an age of magnificent artistic accomplishment and stirring political passion, at the dawning of the Renaissance. As unconventional romance, this boldly provocative piece will present a rare opportunity for audiences to attend one of the only productions to be professionally staged in the United States in over a century.
