Syracuse University Library Associates will present a lecture by Malcolm and Elizabeth Ingram on Thursday, April 23, at 4 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons of E.S. Bird Library.
In a presentation titled “Acting Shakespeare’s Sonnets,” the Ingrams, who both teach voice and acting in SU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, will demonstrate how Shakespeare, through language and structure, reveals the situation and emotional state of his characters in the sonnets, providing the actor with the tools necessary for a fully realized performance.
The Ingrams have worked on more than 50 productions of Shakespeare’s plays in Britain and the United States. Most recently, they presented This Powerful Rhyme, a program of 20 Shakespearean sonnets with music by Andrew Waggoner, performed by the Sequitur repertory company at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City, the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, and the Redhouse Arts Center in Syracuse.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Free event parking is available in the Booth Garage, one block from Bird Library on the corner of Waverly and Comstock avenues.
