Audiences in Los Angeles will have a rare opportunity to see this boldly provocative production of Monna Vanna performed for the first time in over a century. Banned in England shortly before the Nobel Prize for literature was awarded to the playwright, this intricately woven masterpiece of plots and subplots was called "one of the greatest plays in all of world literature" by author Ayn Rand. Maurice Maeterlinck’s fervent fifteenth century Italian tale is set during an age of magnificent artistic accomplishment and stirring political passion, at the dawning of the Renaissance. The show will be included in the upcoming 2008 Arts Program January 6th–13th aboard the Voyager of the Seas cruise ship which features 24 hours of Fine Arts, leisurely paced over six days and seven nights of a Western Caribbean tour. Cruise audiences will enjoy select performances, concerts, demonstrations, lectures and round-table discussion in the fields of music, visual arts, drama, film, art history and art (for cruise information see www.cordair.com).
