SJSU School of Music presents the a fully staged production of the opera L’Amant Anonyme by Joseph Bologne (Chevalier de Saint-Georges). Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the brilliant swordsman, unequalled equestrian, athlete, dancer, violin virtuoso, composer and orchestral conductor is, and remains a singularly unique historical figure of the 18th century French Court of Louis XVI. Believed to be the first man of mixed race to compose classical music, Saint-Georges, who was frequently invited to the court at Versailles to make music with Marie Antoinette not only thrived, but excelled during the height of an appalling slave trade and one of the most explosive periods in European history: the French Revolution.

Supported by the College of Humanities & the Arts (AEPG) Artistic Excellence Programming Grant.
