An evening with Eric Braeden
Universally recognized as Germany’s greatest author, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe created poems of unsurpassable beauty and depth, and wrote novels whose influence is still relevant today.
His plays often drew inspiration not only from Greek mythology, such as Iphigenia in Tauris, but also historical figures and events, such as Torquato Tasso and Egmont.
Goethe’s Faust holds a place in world literature alongside the works of Homer, Dante, and Shakespeare.
International film and television Icon and Emmy and People’s Choice Award winning actor Eric Braeden will read monologues selected from the above mentioned works in English and German.
The acclaimed stage actor and director Louis Fantasia will provide commentaries, prepared by Cornelius Schnauber, Emeritus Associate Professor of USC and Founding Director and Director Emeritus of USC’s Max Kade Institute for Austrian-German-Swiss Studies.
The evening is produced by Cornelius Schnauber.
