Thursday, November 20, 2014, the Department of Languages hosted the successful fall Recital, shining the spotlight on advanced students in French and Japanese.
Students in JPN 350 Advanced Japanese Communication held center place in the Recital.
The FRE 351 French Theatre class concluded the Recital with dramatic scenes, such as Alexandria Acord interpreting Phèdre from Racine's play of the same name, Amelia Hanzlick interpreting Chimène from Corneille's play Le Cid, and Leah Rutliff interpreting Isabelle from Giraudoux's play Intermezzo. We feature today Jenny Nelson playing the role of King Henry and our French assistant Claire Beswick playing the role of Becket from Anouilh's play of the same name. In this scene, King Henry takes a break from falcon hunting in the rain to question his friend Becket about his views on courage, love, and life.
Congratulations to all our participants! And a heartful thank you to all our guests who came to support our students.
