Butler ArtsFest: Banned Music

When: Fri., April 17, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Flout the censors and expose your impressionable ears to three once-banned works performed by the Indianapolis Chamber Ensemble: a “Banned Operas” suite featuring 17th-century opera suppressed by Pope Clement XI; Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, because there’s an unwritten ban in Israel on the virulently anti-Semitic composer’s work; and Schreker’s 1916 proto-Modernist Kammersymphonie, classified as “degenerate art” by the Nazis.

Price: $12-30
