This is the opera for our times! Delve into the life of Artemisia Gentileschi—internationally-renowned painter and modern feminist icon—in this unique one-woman show featuring singer and actress Sarah Chalfy, from New York-based ensemble ARTEK (Gwendolyn Toth, director). She led a life more dramatic than an Italian opera: trained in art by her father, raped as a teenager, Artemisia survived a sensational trial to become an internationally renowned painter, and the secret lover of a Florentine nobleman.
