Come to the Cabaret! We will open the doors at 6:00pm to the Angel Orensanz Foundation for Contemporary Art at 172 Norfolk Street, and you will find Rome in New York with long tables for dinner evocative of the evening meals in Rome. As always, the evening will be equal parts reunion, cocktail party, and opportunity to connect with Fellows and friends.
A brief program will include a reading of new work by the playwright John Guare (2013 Resident) and a musical performance selected by Bang on a Can cofounder and artistic director David Lang (1991 Fellow) featuring Mark Stewart, Robert Black, and Ken Thompson.
Mona Talbott, the founding chef of the Rome Sustainable Food Project, will prepare a seated Italian feast.
An Academy store will be selling items such as Rome Sustainable Food Project cookbooks, tea towels, pasta, and more.
There are one hundred specially priced tickets—$65 each—for Fellows, Affiliated Fellows, and their guests, so that they may attend at a lower price. By purchasing any ticket of $150 or more you are automatically entered in a raffle to win the three American Academy in Rome cookbooks: Biscotti, Zuppe, and Pasta.
