"Sometimes you find the most interesting things in the oddest places," Elizabeth Kerri Mahon recently wrote on the acclaimed Scandalous Women blog that focuses on influential women in history. “For example, I was perusing Time Out New York at work today (because I was bored) when I saw an ad for the Lincoln Center Festival. What really caught my eye was the title Émilie. For some reason, I just assumed that it had to be about one of my favorite Scandalous Women, Émilie du Châtelet. And I was right.”
Composer Kaija Saariaho's Émilie will come to the Gerald W. Lynch Theater on July 19-22.
