Lecture

On Music
The Devil is In the Details

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


Fred Plotkin, lecturer

Sometimes the best music in an opera, symphony or Broadway musical belongs to the bad guy. Using selections of music that are wickedly fun or darkly evocative, Fred Plotkin will plumb the depths of why, sometimes, that which is evil is irresistible — at least in music.

This presentation is part of Fred Plotkin's On Music series.


To ensure the health and safety of our patrons, Artis—Naples has established procedures for your visit to the Kimberly K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus. Please review our COVID-19 Protocols for detailed guidance about our enhanced safety protocols.
